Cleveland Cavaliers turned down offers for Larry Nance Jr. in the 2021 trade deadline. The situation may be different now, with Evan Mobley starting alongside Jarrett Allen the next season.
According to Chris Fedor of cleveland.com, the Cavaliers may look to improve their roster, and they remain active in the trade market.
As a result, Larry Nance Jr. could be dealt away for the right price. Nance has been an exceptional defender in the forward position, however, the Cavs may need to address other needs.
“A team leader, fan favorite, versatile defender and culture piece, Nance’s value extends far beyond the box score. Despite receiving compelling offers for him in the past, the Cavs haven’t gotten the one they believe would make them better. Sources maintain it would take a lot to deal him,” Fedor wrote on Nance.
Several teams could be interested in acquiring the dynamic forward, who could fill various needs for a playoff or a contending team.
“Sources say Grizzlies small forwards Dillon Brooks and Kyle Anderson are available for the right price. The Pistons are expected to look at dumping either Jahlil Okafor or 2019 No. 15 pick Sekou Doumbouya,” Fedor wrote.
Atlanta’s Cam Reddish has been a Cleveland front-office favorite since the 2019 draft. They’ve been in contact with Atlanta about him — even though the price remains high.”
