Billups still undecided about joining Cavaliers — AP source

Kyrie Irving used 30.2 percent of the Cavaliers' possessions last season, the 13th-highest rate in the league.

This summer, there may not be as many big names on the market, but there's still plenty of potential for movement. Walker's the trickiest one to place on this list because he's a smart, hard-working defender whose size is his only limiting factor.

ESPN reports the Cleveland Cavaliers tried to do a three-way deal heading into the 2017 draft that would have sent Paul George to Cleveland. If you're losing him, you better find a way to replace that rebounding. Barring catastrophic injuries, they will almost certainly end the regular season as the favorites to repeat. Tomorrow (July 1) starts the prime of the NBA free agency and Billups and the Cavaliers have yet to finalize anything yet.

Nevertheless, there is still a chance that the Cavaliers could end up acquiring Paul George, especially if they can hire a new general manager as soon as possible. No. Of course not. The Cavs have been linked to two big time players in recent days and both saw key updates to their futures in Carmelo Anthony and Paul George. Gay had an abrupt ending to his year after he ruptured his left Achilles tendon in a game against the Indiana Pacers.

Meanwhile, according to TNT's David Aldridge, Cleveland is also in pursuit of veteran power forward Zach Randolph. He also hasn't taken the court in a playoff game in four years.

Korver is a high priority for the Cavs, who are restricted from making any major signings because they're over the salary cap. But would they have been the favorite without Durant? Yes. That's better than the odds for George, Griffin and even Manu Ginobili. For a team looking to win titles, that amount of money needs to be allocated toward more than 5.6 points and 5.8 rebounds per game in a Finals series.

"It's so much more to being part of a team and being part of something special". Even the deals that don't get made are endlessly fascinating.

LeBron James will be a free agent after the 2017-2018 season.

However, Cleveland might want George bad enough to give up one of their star players.

But here's the tradeoff: Play with LeBron James or get to be No. 1 on this list of No. 2s. "Now, for all we know, Klay could have said, 'Buzz off, I'm staying with the Warriors.' It doesn't really mean much that he put in a call". Instead, Indiana's flaws were exposed by the Cavs in the first round of the playoffs.

George's agent, Aaron Mintz informed the Pacers last week that his client would opt out of his contract and leave the team after the upcoming season.

For at least this summer, the Cavaliers' focus is on the first premise.
