Cleveland Cavaliers Trade Carrick Felix to Utah Jazz

140121-felix-640

The Cleveland Cavaliers continue to make moves in order to secure the necessary pieces to obtain Kevin Love.

The latest domino has the Cavaliers sending guard Carrick Felix to Utah for three players with non-guaranteed contracts.

While this deal in a vacuum doesn’t seem noteworthy, it provides the Cavs with more assets to go after Love.

The Cavs sent Felix, a second-round pick in 2015, and $1 million to the Jazz for guard John Lucas III and forwards Malcolm Thomas and Erik Murphy.

This trade will allow the Cavs to clear $3.3 million in salary cap space.
