The Cavaliers are among the teams expressing strong interest in Trail Blazers guard/forward Josh Hart, according to Marc Stein of The Stein Line.
This is the second such indication that the Cavs have an interest in Hart, as we relayed the first here. Both Hart and center Jusuf Nurkic are reportedly available ahead of Thursday’s trade deadline. In fact, the Blazers are said to be in buyer’s mode.
Meanwhile, the Cavs are aiming to shore up a small forward spot that has been fairly inconsistent since the start of the season with the likes of Caris LeVert, Isaac Okoro, Dean Wade and Lamar Stevens all at times filling the role.
It’s hard to know if Hart would be any more of a solution than anyone currently on the Cavs’ roster, however. He too can be a little unsteady.
Nonetheless, he has now been linked to Cleveland on several occasions, making you think that there is something to all the chatter.
“Hart has joined the likes of Denver’s Bones Hyland, New York’s Cam Reddish, various veterans in Utah and the LA Clippers’ John Wall on the Most Likely To Be Traded list at this deadline,” Stein wrote.
