Cavs Rumors: Cleveland Cavaliers Nearing Deal to Send Richard Jefferson and Kay Felder to Hawks

1 Min Read

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.

According to Shams Charania of The Vertical and ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Cavs are nearing a deal that would send veteran Richard Jefferson and point guard Kay Felder to the Atlanta Hawks in exchange for Atlanta’s European draft rights.

Jefferson is expected to be immediately waived by the Hawks, allowing him to become a free agent upon clearing waivers.

The trade will save the Cavs about $12 million in luxury taxes.

Both Jefferson and Felder have been mentioned as two players that the Cavs were likely to either cut or trade in order to trim down the roster.
