The February 8th NBA trade deadline is fast approaching, and the Cleveland Cavaliers have to make a big move. The Cavs are 30-20, coming off of an ugly win against the Miami Heat. Dysfunction and under-performance have dragged down the team all season, and now, Kevin Love is expected to miss the next two months with a hand injury. With the improvements of the Boston Celtics and Toronto Raptors, The Eastern Conference does not appear to be the cakewalk for Cleveland as it has been for the past three season. And if the Cavs do manage to make it out of the East, the buzz-saw that is the Golden State Warriors will be waiting for them. The Cavs have been linked to a few different players recently. The Sacramento Kings’ George Hill was rumored to be a target of Cleveland’s, but head coach Tyronn Lue reportedly voted against a deal that would have brought him to the Cavs in exchange for Iman Shumpert and Channing Frye. This trade made sense from a pure basketball perspective, as Hill is shooting 45% from three-point range, can play either guard position, and is a solid defender.
