7/11/10 Cavs Rumors

The Cavs are reportedly in trade talks with numerous teams around the league, including the potential Al Jefferson trade with Minnesota I mentioned yesterday.  However, sources are saying that the Cavs and Hawks have been heating up trade talks during the Summer League.  The Hawks are, reportedly, interested in Shaq and Mo Williams, while the Cavs have had their eye on Josh Childress for a while, along with Marvin Williams.

This would be a good deal, since Shaq is almost certainly leaving town, this way we can get something back for him.  The only problem I see with this is the inclusion of Mo Williams.  It certainly wouldn't surprise me if he was traded before the season, we would need to swing another trade to bring in a starter-quality point.  With the future of Delonte West up in the air, the only other point guards we have on the roster are Boobie Gibson and Sebastian Telfair.  Boobie is one of my favorite Cavs, but neither he nor Bassy are starting-quality 'Points.

On the other end, the Cavs have a obvious and serious interest in Josh Childress, who has been playing in Greece for the last few years.  He would be a nice addition, as would Marvin Williams.  Williams never really reached his full potential, to this point, but he is a more than serviceable forward who could help out.  My only question is, does the Cavs' interest in Williams mean they're not entirely confident that JJ Hickson can become the player he should become?
