The Cleveland Cavaliers recently missed out on the NBA playoffs for the fourth time in four years since the departure of LeBron James in 2010. But owner, Dan Gilbert is determined to make the Cavs losses a thing of the past.

After trading for Luol Deng in January this year, Gilbert appears ready to make another splash during this offseason.

Sam Amico of Fox Sports reports: "One source said regardless of who is named GM, "they will make a major deal" this summer."

The Cavaliers fired Chris Grant as general manager in the middle of this season and are yet to appoint a replacement, however it seems whoever takes up the mantle will be given the opportunity to strike a deal.

Cleveland have struggled since James left for Miami four years ago although since that time they have had three top-five picks including two first overall selections.

Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters may be steadily progressing into decent NBA players, however Anthony Bennett is yet to show his potential at the professional level.

Gilbert is clearly unhappy with the standard of the Cavs roster, but whether Cleveland can pull off the deal that the owner wants remains to be seen.
