• The Timberwolves and Celtics may be interested in Larry Nance Jr., a report says
  • The Cavs could be breaking up their frontline to take in fresh blood
  • Kevin Love is reportedly of interest to the Mavericks rather than Andre Drummond

The Cleveland Cavaliers are waiting on offers for Andre Drummond, although it appears that a buyout is the recourse happening. However, the All-Star center may not be the only one on the block. Larry Nance Jr. is drawing interest, and the Boston Celtics and Minnesota Timberwolves have been singled out as possible destinations in new reports.

The T-Wolves are aggressively pursuing Nance, and this dates back to the offseason, reported, citing unnamed sources. However, Minnesota is not the only team in the race for the 28-year-old player. Other teams mentioned by Chris Fedor include the Celtics, Miami Heat and the Philadelphia 76ers.

Nance has proven himself effective upfront. He has played 19 games this season, averaging 9.3 points, 6.8 rebounds and 3.2 assists in 33.4 minutes of action, per

The Cavs are at the bottom part of the NBA Eastern Conference but are just three games behind the Toronto Raptors. They still have a chance at the NBA postseason, although this still depends on how coach J.B. Bickerstaff can manage the roster he has right now.

Should Nance be traded, it all boils down to who the Cavs would get. With the outbound Drummond and possibly Nance as well, Cleveland would need a healthy center or forward to cover the void. As of this writing, no names have been mentioned.

It also would be best to note the status of Kevin Love. He too has been mentioned in potential NBA trade rumors, but his hefty salary is also a big problem. Several big names like Russell Westbrook have been suggested in the offseason, but nothing went down. The former NBA MVP has since moved to the Washington Wizards and appears to be settled in.

The Dallas Mavericks have been suggested as a potential destination by Fedor in a separate report. Drummond was the one initially linked to Dallas, but Sam Amico mentioned on that the Cavs would love a move for the All-Star forward, something that could happen by the March 25 NBA trade deadline.

Right now, these are crucial moves that could make or break the Cavs. The current NBA season is not yet over for the Cleveland Cavaliers, but these moves could be seen more as an investment for the franchise’s future.
