Cleveland Cavs trade rumors are surfacing around Kevin Love, George Hill and Kyle Korver as the organization begins life without superstar LeBron James.

The latest Cleveland Cavs trade rumors suggest the franchise will hit reset following the departure of LeBron James, rather than attempt to retool.

GM Koby Altman doesn’t really have a choice. Making minor upgrades to the roster may get the Cavs the sixth or seventh seed in the East.

When you’re running in the hamster wheel of mediocrity, you’re guaranteed to go nowhere. That’s life in the NBA.

It’s not necessarily a surprise that this is where the organization finds itself. Even with the departure of LeBron James, the franchise is over the salary cap.

Cleveland could always offer the mid-level exception, but adding players to a roster that doesn’t have James on it is a pipe dream.

James’ departure does mean the franchise is on the right side of the luxury tax apron, meaning Cleveland can now receive someone in a sign a trade. This type of trade isn’t likey, but at least the flexibility provides another option.

This edition of “Four Passes” is all about Cavs trade rumors because there are plenty of them right now.
