The Cleveland Cavaliers have pursued trade scenarios for both Paul George and Jimmy Butler, but those efforts appear to have led to a dead end.
Cleveland was attempting to recruit a third team to take on Kevin Love to send the type of rebuilding assets the Indiana Pacers and Chicago Bulls seek.

The Cavaliers acquired Love in 2014 in a trade with the Minnesota Timberwolves for Andrew Wiggins and Anthony Bennett. Cleveland then re-signed Love on a five-year, $110 million contract in 2015. Love has been the least valuable part of the Cavaliers’ Big 3 and there are long-term concerns about his deficiencies on defense and his injury history.
