LeBron James has been back in Cleveland for a matter of months, and it seems like things are really clicking with his new teammates after a difficult start.
But it seems like the Cavs are already okay with letting the four-time Most Valuable Player leave.
In a move that comes as a pretty big shock to everyone, Cleveland Cavaliers general manager David Griffin has come out and said that absolute nobody on the Cavs roster is untouchable, meaning that it is well within reason that LBJ could leave Cleveland if a good enough offer in.
Speaking with Chris Haynes of the Northeast Ohio Media Group, Griffin talked about the Cavs roster and said the following:
"No one is untouchable, and you're never done building a team, so we're always paying attention to what opportunities are out there. My tendency is always trying to do what we can do to improve the roster. But I'm not looking to create one so much as paying attention to what I'm hearing," Griffin said.
"No one is untouchable...so we're always paying attention to what opportunities are out there."

Surely Griffin isn't including LeBron, Kevin Love or Kyrie Irving in that group of tradable players? But if he isn't then why does he not say so.
Surely it makes more sense to add a verbal disclaimer after he said no one was untouchable. Then people wouldn't be able to look at his quotes and say "what the hell is he talking about?"
When you look through the Cavaliers roster there are players that obviously won't be traded. There is the big 3 of LeBron, Love and Kyrie. And then you have the players that James brought with him to Cleveland from Miami; James Jones and Mike Miller.
Then you have Tristan Thompson who won't leave as he has the same reps as LeBron. That leaves Dion Waiters, Anderson Varejao, Shawn Marion, Matthew Dellavadova, Joe Harris and Brendan Haywood as the only tradable players.
Good luck making huge, roster changing moves with them Griffin.
