At the end of an interview Friday on the Cavaliers future, Sam Amico of FOX Sports Ohio was asked who Cleveland might be interested in this off-season. He mentioned Kevin Love, DeMarcus Cousins but said that's mostly speculation. Then he added another name to the discussion...
"What I have heard and what I think is going to happen --it would be a risky move-- but that Brook Lopez is very available. That could be an intriguing name for you."
But Baskin & Phelps of CBS Sports didn't push the issue, didn't ask what the Cavs might be willing to give up or even what he meant by "going to happen" --does that mean "expect rumors" or "expect a deal." It was NOT in the context of trading the Cavaliers first round pick. Of course, there has been discussion of Cleveland trading Kyrie Irving. Just saying.
