Cleveland Cavaliers agree to trade Richard Jefferson, Kay Felder to Atlanta Hawks

Cleveland Cavaliers agree to trade Richard Jefferson, Kay Felder to Atlanta Hawks”

The Cleveland Cavaliers will trade Richard Jefferson and Kay Felder to the Atlanta Hawks, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Cleveland and Atlanta are planning a trade call to finalize the agreement with the league office Friday night or Saturday morning, league sources said. Jefferson, 37, is on the hook for $2.5 million this season. The 2019 pick will be the lesser pick from the Minnesota Timberwolves and Los Angeles Lakers that had been owed to the Cavaliers, and the 2020 pick is from the Portland Trail Blazers. Cleveland will also create a $2.6 million and a $1.4 million trade exception, both available for one year.

J.R. Smith said "absolutely" he is frustrated that he lost his place in the Cavaliers' starting lineup to Dwyane Wade, though neither he nor Tristan Thompson aim to make trouble now that they're both coming off the bench.

The Cleveland Cavaliers must cut down their final roster to 15 players by the start of the regular season, and it seems like the team is already prepared to part with two of its players from last season. It's a purely salary cap saving maneuver for the Cavaliers, who are well over the salary cap and paying exponential luxury tax penalties. He appeared in 79 games last season, averaging 5.7 points in 20.4 minutes.
