They are the fourth team in the East with a 30-16 record but that doesn’t mean the Cleveland Cavaliers won’t make some changes before the upcoming NBA trade deadline.
According to a new report from Cavaliers insider Evan Dammarell, via Cavaliers Nation and NBA Central, the team already has its eyes set on two stars.
Apparently, the Cavaliers are linked to both Bogdan Bogdanovic and Saddiq Bey of the Atlanta Hawks with just days to go before the deadline.

Bogdanovic, now in his fourth year with the Atlanta Hawks, is putting up 17.1 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 2.6 assists per game while shooting 43.1% from the floor and 37.1% from the three-point line.
Meanwhile, Bey is recording 13.2 points, 6.6 rebounds, and 1.5 assists this year.
Bogdanovic is 31 years old and is under contract with the Hawks through 2025-26 with a team option on his deal for the 2026-27 season and Bey is going to be a restricted free agent this summer.
Both players could give the Cavaliers some help on the offensive end of the court, while Bey could also help them defensively.
Outside of Bogdanovic and Bey, there haven’t been any rumored trade targets for Cleveland, mostly because they have been playing so well lately.
They aren’t looking to make many adjustments because they have been thriving over the last few weeks.
Plus, Evan Mobley and Darius Garland just returned from their lengthy absences because of injuries.
Instead of thinking of possible trades, the team might just focus on finally working with a fully healthy roster.
Mobley and Garland could give the Cavaliers all the boost that they need.
