Perkins was sent to the Jazz on Thursday in a three-team deal involving the Oklahoma City Thunder and Detroit Pistons and was expected to be bought out immediately after.
Other teams involved in the bidding for Perkins were the Chicago Bulls, Los Angeles Clippers, New Orleans Pelicans, and San Antonio Spurs, with the Cavs being “strong” frontrunners.
According to a source, LeBron James was heavily involved in recruiting the 6’10” center to the Cavaliers.

Known for his gritty interior defense, Perkins will help solidify the Cavs frontline, providing depth behind center Timofey Mozgov.
