Sitting just three games out of the playoff race, expect the Cleveland Cavaliers to be very active near the 2014 trade deadline.
The Cavs, once thought to be headed towards yet another lottery, have suddenly come to life. Winners of four straight games, Cleveland will likely be buyers instead of sellers.
The Cavaliers could definitely use some upgrades for the final two months of the regular season.
Anderson Varejao is dinged up and has missed five of the last nine games. Finding some insurance at center, or someone new to take the job, should be near the top of the list. The Cavs could also use a small forward to build around for the future, should Luol Deng leave as a free agent this summer. Another veteran shooter/defender would be welcomed with open arms as well.
Looking at players that should become available, there are some good options out there.
Here are five of the best for Cleveland to pursue.
