CLEVELAND, Ohio –- If the Cavaliers trade the top pick in a strong NBA Draft, plus maybe Dion Waiters, for Kevin Love they would get a better Luol Deng -- a free agent who could be gone after one season here.

Getting Love would also clearly be a flirtatious wink at LeBron James, decider, defector and demon of Cleveland's playoff dreams.

Season Overview: If this was one of those post-season exercises where we were handing out letter grades, it would be unfortunate to have to give C.J. Miles an “I” for incomplete. Good thing it’s not.

Still, C.J.’s season is a reminder of what-might-have-been for the Cavs in 2013-14. The injury bug bit the normally-durable Miles, shutting down the final third of what was shaping up as a good season, and forcing one of the squad’s best team players to watch Cleveland’s late-season playoff push in street clothes.

Miles suffered a severely-sprained left ankle in a February 19 victory over the Orlando Magic – Cleveland’s sixth straight. He was limited to just two minutes of action the rest of the season, giving it a go against Miami after missing the previous 12 games. He would be sidelined for the final 13 contests after that. - CLICK HERE to read full story.
