NBA Trade Speculation: 10 Targets for Cavaliers to Upgrade at Shooting Guard

It's no secret, the shooting guard position is a weakness for the Cleveland Cavaliers

This is not a breaking development. The Cavaliers haven't had a really good shooting guard since the days of Craig Ehlo and Ron Harper. Since then, names like Chris Mills, Dan Majerle, Bob Sura, Wesley Person, Ricky Davis and Larry Hughes have filled the top 2 spot on the depth chart. 

Not exactly a scary bunch of players.

It's almost crazy to think that its been nearly two decades since Ehlo (a.k.a. Santa Claus, who hails from Lubbock, Texas, thanks Joe Tait) last played for the Cavaliers. It's even crazier to think that the organization hasn't been able to find one really good shooting guard since then.

With the trade deadline under two months away, the Cavaliers may look to change that fortune at the shooting guard spot. 

Clearly, Anthony Parker is not the future for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Parker has been a very average player for the Cavs, and though he may be a solid locker room guy, the team has to start building talent.

The following slides contain ten players who the Cavaliers might honestly take a look at in the trade market. Consider this a warning, this is an attempt at a fair and reasonable list. Names like Joe Johnson, Kobe Bryant and Dwyane Wade do not make an appearance. 

The following ten players may get a legitimate look from the Cavaliers coaching staff and front office to come to Cleveland and grow with the young talent already on the roster. They are listed in no particular order, and the actual details of a proposed trade are not speculated on.
