The Cleveland Cavaliers have been quietly rolling in the NBA Eastern Conference, a surprise revelation owed to several factors. And at this point, things can only get better if they manage to add key players to the mix.

According to Chris Fedor of when he appeared on the USA Today HoopsHype podcast, the Cavs have a couple of targets in mind. The names of Caris LeVert of the Indiana Pacers and Joe Harris of the Brooklyn Nets are allegedly on their wish list.

These are two names to take note of before the NBA trade deadline in February. However, the case of Harris is a bit intriguing.

Harris is currently on the sidelines after undergoing ankle surgery and his return has yet to be known. Regardless, the 30-year-old is a proven scorer from the wings that the Cavs or any other team would surely love to have.

Although the Nets have a platoon of superstars on their end, Harris is one of those players that any star-studded team could use especially in terms of outside scoring. He is only in the second year of a four-year $75 million contract he signed in 2020. To get him, the Cavs would need roughly $55.8 million to cover it.

However, there have been no indications yet that the Nets would part with the 6-foot-6 swingman. Depending on who the Cavs dangle, anything can happen in the next months.

As for LeVert, ironically another former Nets player, his name has been floated as a potential trade candidate. The Pacers’ campaign has not exactly gone well and Indiana is speculated to trade away its top assets and rebuild, The Athletic reported.

Aside from LeVert, other names that are believed to be on the block include Domantas Sabonis and Myles Turner. So far, no deal for any of the three has prospered.
