At this point, there is no move the Cavaliers can make that would surprise me. Because, at this point — the absolute nadir of a rebuilding process — what player on that roster do you have to keep?

Now J.J. Hickson, he is being shopped around according to a tweet from the well-connected Brian Windhorst of ESPN.

2 players you can talk to Cavs about now: Ramon Sessions & JJ Hickson. Andy Varejao not available for just a draft pick.

We have known Sessions has been on the market for a while, and you can bet at some point a deal for him will happen (whether that is before the draft is hard to say).

If they really are willing to move Anderson Varejao there may be interest from contenders, he is a guy who can come in and do the dirty work for them. But with Varejao having at least three more years and $27 million owed him (he can be bought out of the last year of his deal) teams will want to see the new Collective Bargaining Agreement before taking on that salary.

Still, look for the Cavaliers to be active with trades. They need to be. They need to do a lot of things.

    Winderhorst does not have the creditablity to be writting on the Cavs anymore. He jumped ship as fast as he could to follow his dream man. His sources wouldn’t give him the time of the day for a story like this.

    Ask a reporter from Cleveland when it comes to stories about their players. Not some lame duck reporter.

      I’m sure his report carries more weight than a jaded comment from some random internet dude. Glad you feel the need to criticize someone for bettering their position in life by accepting a good job offer. You go ahead and think about that for a little bit.

    It’s welll known that Winderhorst is LeBron’s lap dog pdbro. savocabol1 was simply stating the obvious. Now you go ahead and think about that for a little bit.

      What does LeBron have to do with the subject at hand? Everyone knows Winderhorst has been covering LeBron for years, hence your remark about him stating the obvious. It’s funny to think he’s no longer well connected because he switched media markets. You guys are cute. Keep trying.

        Your obviously not from Cleveland and don’t have a sense of what the media is like over here. I am sure that his old friends don’t hate him for taking a better job following one player, but they aren’t going to associate with him like they used to.

        I ask you this one question: Why would someone from inside the Cavs organization (because that is where the leak would have to originate) go ahead and tell a sports reporter from Miami what the organization is attempting to do?

        Thanks for calling me cute by the way!

    from Sam Amico’s twitter : “Cavs source says team has not floated JJ Hickson’s name for draft pick. “That comes from people who aren’t dialed in to team,” source says.” – SamAmicoFSO….4 hours ago.
