LeBron James has made it clear that he wants a point guard/playmaker on the Cavaliers roster and if they're going to trade for a guy time is ticking away- The NBA's trade deadline is quickly approaching on February 23rd.
The Cavs have already brought in free agents like Mario Chalmers, Kirk Hinrich and Lance Stephenson for workouts but there's another name out there that is more intriguing.
Deron Williams is reportedly being shopped by the Dallas Mavericks who are willing to send him to Cleveland and the Cavs have a mutual interest in the veteran guard, although it will likely cost them Iman Shumpert as well as a draft pick.
According to Sam Amico of AmicoHoops.net:
"The Mavericks would make a trade of guard Deron Williams to the Cavaliers for guard Iman Shumpert, but only if the Cavs included a draft pick, a league source told Amico Hoops."
"Several reports have said the Cavs have an interest in Williams as a potential reserve point guard/playmaker."
Williams is averaging 13.5 points and 7.1 assists per game this season with Dallas.
