The Cleveland Cavaliers have gone about their business in quiet and unspectacular fashion so far in free agency.
After coming up short in the NBA Finals against Steph Curry, Andre Iguodala and the Golden State Warriors, the Cavs would have wanted to keep their core squad together despite a big portion of the roster being free agents.
And things have gone well in that regards. LeBron James doesn't look like he's going anywhere, Tristan Thompson and Kevin Love have decided to stick around in Cleveland, with the big money contracts going someway to helping that. After agreeing players to new deals, the Cavaliers are now turning their attention to new additions.

The Cavs may be discussing trades for Joe Johnson and Jordan Crawford, but they have already secured the signature of one veteran guard.
According to a report from Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, Cleveland signed Mo Williams to a two-year deal late last night to bring him back to the Cavs.
"Mo Williams agreed to a two-year, $4.3M deal with Cleveland, including a player option, league sources tell Yahoo."
Wojnarowski then went on to add another bit of information, revealing that Wiliams had received offers from free agency big spenders the San Antonio Spurs and Dallas Mavericks among others, but chose Cleveland.
"Williams had considered deals with San Antonio, Dallas and New Orleans before committing to a reunion with the Cavaliers and LeBron James.," he added.
For now, Williams fills one of the biggest holes the Cavs had. He’ll serve as a back up to Kyrie Irving at the point and may even play some two-guard if J.R Smith doesn't return to Cleveland. The Cavs are in dire need of some bench scoring and as a good shooter, that's what Williams brings.
The 32-year old seemed happy to be returning to Cleveland after leaving in 2011.
Williams, averaged 14.2 points and 6.2 assists for Minnesota and Charlotte last season, including a 52-point game against Indiana in January. He was named an All-Star in 2009, during his time with the Cavs and now just needs a ring to retire happy.
