It's no secret that the Cleveland Cavaliers are struggling so far this season and are in a rebuilding mode despite having a significant number of veterans on their roster.
With those facts in mind, some of those veterans could be on the move in the very near future. In a recent appearance on ESPN's "The Jump,"Adrian Wojnarowski reported that guards Kyle Korver and JR Smith could be moved prior to the NBA trade deadline and teams should show interest in the pair of veterans.
Wojnarowski also believes that Korver could be a fit with the Philadelphia 76ers this season.
“I think if Korver were in the last year of his contract there would be tremendous interest around the league,” Wojnarowski said. “Some teams are trying to clear cap space for next summer (and the 2019 free-agent class), like Philadelphia. But Philly’s gotta look and say, ‘It’s fine to have space moving forward, but we need shooters.'”
Stan Van Gundy also weighed in on the situation and admits that the Sixers make a ton of sense for Korver. The former Detroit Pistons head coach added that Philadelphia trading for Korver would allow the team to slide J.J. Redick back into the starting lineup after they began the year with former top pick Markelle Fultz as a starter. Van Gundy also said that the Sixers could utilize Korver in the role that Marco Belinelli held last season and ended up being one of the more productive sixth men during the second half of the season.
