Cleveland Cavaliers to trade Luol Deng already

Published Add your comment

The ink has barely dried on Luol Deng's trade forms, but the Cleveland Cavaliers could be set to offload there new man already.

The deal seemed to be a great one for the Cavs, in came Deng a former All-Star who could improve the team on both sides of the court, and out went the unfit and unmotivated Andrew Bynum along with a draft pick.

Instead, they're 5-10 since the trade, and 2-8 in their last 10, falling to an awful17-33 record for the season and nowhere near the playoffs where they hoped to be. 

So effectively, in a season where they hoped to be exciting enough to try and entice Lebron James back to Ohio in free agency, they face the prospect of not even being able to hold on to Deng, who is unhappy in his new surroundings. 

So instead of waiting for the inevitable, Cleveland are looking to make a deal that could benefit both them and the small forward, according to Fox Ohio's Sam Amico

"I think (GM David Griffin) will explore getting some depth. I also think flipping Luol Deng is a real possibility. Deng could result in a big trade. And as I reported repeatedly (and is now official since Woj wrote it, too), other GMs really like Griffin and are very open to dealing with him."

Well, Luol Deng was unhappy in joining Cleveland in the first place, lets see how he'll feel if he has to move again.
