Two role players left from LeBron’s Cavaliers could be moved

Oh, look. LeBron James left another Cleveland Cavaliers team in shambles — again. This team, though, has a couple of guys who could be of use to other squads. Now, it would be pretty surprising if Kyle Korver or J.R. Smith went to a team like the Bulls.

It would be even more shocking if the Bulls made a move for either of them. But, per HoopsHype, both Korver and Smith are likely to be dealt by this year’s trade deadline.

The only one that makes a slight bit of sense is to bring back Korver, and that would simply be for the fans. Korver is only getting 15 minutes of playing time per game this season, and that’s on a bad team.

He can still shoot the ball, but that’s about all he does. Plus, the Bulls have plenty of three-point shooting and aren’t looking to add a veteran for a deep playoff push.

Count the Bulls as one of the teams not looking at Cleveland’s assets at the moment.
