The Cleveland Cavaliers have been very active in trade talks throughout the past few weeks, and Dion Waiters’ name has come up in discussions since last season at the trading deadline. It appears that he is very much available once again this offseason, and there are plenty of teams out there that could use a player with the scoring ability and potential that Waiters possesses.
