RUMOR: Cavaliers May Explore Trade for DeMarcus Cousins This Offseason
The Cleveland Cavaliers had no troubles making their way through the Eastern Conference playoffs, reeling off a 12-1 record as they got set to face off against the Golden State Warriors squad that added Kevin Durant this season.
Two games in and it was apparent that the Cavaliers, even with LeBron, were no match for this high-powered Dubs team. The Warriors eventually ended the series in five games for their second title in three years.
In a recent appearance on the Murph & Mac Bay Area-based podcast, ESPN’s Marc J. Spears stated that the Cavaliers could be looking to make major upgrades to their roster. In the podcast, Spears mentioned that they may look to trade for New Orleans Pelicans’ big man DeMarcus Cousins.

The chances of the Cavaliers actually pulling off this trade are slim, but this is a franchise that will do anything it can to keep LeBron happy and avoid having him leave once again—with many reports stating he probably will during the 2018 offseason.
