David West being targeted by the Cleveland Cavaliers

Published Add your comment

NBA free agency has been good for the Cleveland Cavaliers so far. 

Everyone's In

After coming up short in the NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors, the Cavs would have wanted to keep their core squad together despite a lot of the roster being free agents with their contracts coming to an end.

LeBron James doesn't look like he's going anywhere, while both Tristan Thompson and Kevin Love have decided to stick around in Cleveland for the upcoming future. After agreeing players to new deals, the Cavaliers are now turning their attention to new additions.

Looking West

It seems that the Cavs are looking West. David West, to be precise. According to a report from Candace Buckner of the Indianapolis Star, the Cavaliers have strong interest in the former Indiana Pacers man.

"I'm hearing the Cleveland Cavaliers have "huge interest" in David West. Most definitely aligns with his desire to play for a contender,"  Buckner tweeted out earlier today.

West is a former two-time All-Stat and well-respected veteran in the NBA. LeBron wants as many locker room leaders that he can get his hands on to come in for the Cavs and in West they would have one who is still capable of producing plenty on the court in the right situation.

The Cavs will potentially have to fight it out with a San Antonio Spurs side who are also holding an interest in the 34-year old. Thankfully for them, West doesn't seem interested in money and just wants to win an NBA Title before he retires from the game.

West averaged 11.7 points, 6.8 rebounds and 3.4 assists in 28.7 minutes per contest for the Pacers last season. He is the New Orleans Pelicans all-time leading scorer after being a first round pick in 2003.
