News sources in Cleveland have quashed rumors that Cavaliers forward, Luol Deng could be set for a deadline trade in the next 24 hours. reported earlier that the Cavaliers were willing to shop Deng as a possible trade chip. The team are unsure whether Deng will want to sign an extension with the Cavs when he hits free agency this summer.

However,  Sam Amico of Fox Sports Ohio said: "Let me just say this based on what I’m hearing from other execs around the league: It seems highly unlikely that Deng will be moved."

Deng joined the Cavaliers in January in exchange for three draft picks but Cleveland have not been able to break into a playoff berth this season and it would seem unlikely that Deng would want to stay with limited talent in Cleveland.

Although it would appear that new Cavaliers GM, David Griffin would be keen to receive offers for him, it would seem that teams around the league will not be in a position to make a deal this close to the deadline.
