Report: Cavs With Interest in Wizards SF Jared Dudley

ProBasketballTalk.com reports that the Cavs may have interest in looking at Wizards swingman Jared Dudley, a player according to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst the Cavs have been chatting and looking at for quite awhile.

Here’s part of the story from the site about the Cavs and Dudley:

The Cavaliers reportedly want another wing. How about the Wizards’ Jared Dudley? Brian Windhorst on ESPN Cleveland: “The Cavs would love to get their hands on Jared Dudley. They tried to trade for Jared Dudley. They kicked around trading for Jared Dudley last summer.”

With the Warriors hoarding so many of the NBA’s few good wings – Klay Thompson, Harrison Barnes and Andre Iguodala – and using them simultaneously with Draymond Green and Stephen Curry in their nuclear lineup, the rest of the league is trying to catch up.

The Cavs have a decent start with LeBron James, Iman Shumpert and J.R. Smith, but they could use more depth. When the goal is a championship, it’s better to leave nothing to chance.

The 30-year-old is in his 10th NBA season, he was drafted by Charlotte in the first round in the 2007 season. He played a season and a half with the Bobocats, then went to Phoenix where he played five seasons. Since then he’s played for the Clippers, Bucks and now he’s with Washington.

In 641 career games he’s put up 8.5 points per game and 3.9 rebounds per game.

One note about if the Cavs did want to bring in Dudley, he up the Cavs projected luxury-tax bill by $18,358,897.
