The days of Dion Waiters as a Cleveland Cavalier may be coming to an end, with rumours suggesting that he could be traded.

The Cavaliers selected Waiters with the fourth pick of the 2012 NBA draft. His rookie season was productive but as his days with Cavs have progressed Waiters has grown more ineffective and he doesn't seem to be clicking with his fellow teammates.

According to sources cited by ESPN's Chris Broussard, the Cavs have already looked at options regarding the young shooting guard.

He tweeted: "Sources: Cavs shopping Dion Waiters. They've spoken w/Chi, NYK & Philly. No deal imminent. Waiters is open to being traded." 

The season is still very young but Waiters has allowed his frustration to get the better of him. Waiters' numbers have dropped from his rookie season, going from 14.7 points per game in his rookie season to 13.0 in his sophomore year.

Waiters has started the last three games on the bench, coming on for C.J Miles or Matthew Dellavedova.

This may be one the many reasons that Waiters has been such a stubborn player this season. It was reported that Waiters had an altercation with Kyrie Irving, but Broussard has claimed that Waiters in fact had a disagreement with forward Tristan Thompson, with nothing physical taking place.

This took place in a players only meeting after a 29-point loss against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Whatever happens, it seems as though Waiters is set to leave Cleveland.
