Report: Iman Shumpert “Available,” But Cavs Unlikely To Rush into Deal

According to Sam Amico, Cleveland Cavaliers shooting guard Iman Shumpert is “available” in trade discussions.

However, it doesn’t appear the Cavs are going to jump at just any offer to part with Shumpert, whose defense and three-point shooting make him a valuable piece on the defending champions’ roster.

The Cavs also have yet to re-sign Derrick Williams, but could still make that move after the deadline.

According to Jason Lloyd, the team is keeping his roster spot open to see what type of trade offers come their way.

Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com reported Wednesday morning the Cavs intend to sign Williams to another 10-day contract before Thursday.

Cleveland currently has two open roster spots, but if no trades are made, don’t be surprised if the Cavs re-sign Williams and then look for a backup point guard in free-agency, once the buyout market heats up.

Canton Charge point guard Quinn Cook worked out for the New Orleans Pelicans Tuesday. Mario Chalmers and a few other veterans took part, as well.

The Cavs have had the ability to follow Cook closer than any NBA team these past two seasons and haven’t pulled the trigger on offering a deal yet, which indicates he’s probably not a part of their plans in the immediate future.

We’ll keep you posted if any news develops on Shumpert, Williams, Cook and any other Cavs-related updates.
