5 Trade Targets for Cleveland Cavaliers This Summer
USA TODAY Sports

Now with the NBA draft complete, the Cleveland Cavaliers will set their sights on free agency and trades.

The Cavs pulled off two notable deals earlier this year, acquiring forward Luol Deng and center Spencer Hawes. It was new general manager David Griffin who brought in Hawes, sacrificing Earl Clark, Henry Sims and a pair of second-round picks.

Now, Griffin has an entire offseason to pull off another deal and improve the team he officially took over on May 12.

When pursuing potential trade candidates, he has already revealed what he wants to add to the Cavaliers, via Bob Finnan of The News-Herald and The Morning Journal.

Griffin has also talked in the past about adding players who could stretch the floor and provide drive-and-kick opportunities for Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters.

Based on the needs mentioned and rumors floating around, here are five players the Cavaliers should pursue.
