The Cleveland Cavaliers are reportedly set to delve back into the market for a veteran point guard in order to have cover for Kyrie Irving.
The Cavs have already been busy in the trade market this year after moving for former New York Knicks duo JR Smith and Iman Shumpert.
In addition, after losing Anderson Varejao for the season with a torn Achilles, they opted to bring in former Denver Nuggets center Timofey Mozgov to address one of the biggest weaknesses on their roster.
However, it isn’t expected to stop there as they are now reportedly looking to bolster their backcourt and bring in cover for Irving in case he suffers any further injuries down the stretch.
“Knowing they are a Kyrie Irving injury away from more trouble, the Cavs are working to acquire a veteran point guard,” Yahoo Sports’ Marc Spears reports.
Fortunately for Cleveland, there are a number of veteran point guards potentially available ahead of the trade deadline on February 19. Jordan Farmar, Nate Robinson, Ramon Sessions and Luke Ridnour have all been mentioned already, and so they will likely assess their options in the coming weeks before making their move.
However, it is worth noting that any injury to Irving would be a huge blow for the team given his attributes as he fits perfectly with the likes of LeBron James and Kevin Love by providing perimeter scoring.
Nevertheless, with the ability to add to the roster, the Cavs will make a sound move by bringing in cover and rounding off the roster further ahead of a championship push.
