It seems that the Cleveland Cavaliers' highest priority this season is bringing their best free agents back. While they understand that they need to improve the team by adding another superstar in the free agency, they will first work on re-signing their own free agents before pursuing big-name players.

Joe Vardon of cleveland.com reports that the Cavaliers are expected to give Kyle Korver an offer to return to the team as soon as NBA free agency starts, at 12.01 a.m. He also reported that the Cavaliers are still interested in Carmelo Anthony and they are hoping that the New York Knicks will offer him a buyout.

In that case, Anthony would become a free agent and Cleveland would be able to sign him.

Kyle Korver will come back

Korver is obviously a priority this offseason and the Cleveland Cavaliers want to bring him back as soon as possible. He was acquired in a trade with the Atlanta Hawks early this year and he has no reason to sign with another team as the Cavaliers can pay him well and also give him a championship ring.

Kyle was paid $5.2 million last season and the four-year contract he signed with the Hawks in 2013 has come to an end. Considering that he is 36, the Cavaliers most likely won't sign him to a long-term deal, although, considering his play style, he could probably play well for at least four more years.

The sharpshooter averaged 10.7 points per game in 35 appearances for the Cavaliers. He was also one of the most lethal three-point shooters in the entire league as he converted 48.5 percent of his long-range shots. Kyle Korver is one of the best shooters in the NBA and he's a valuable backup for Cleveland, so it's not hard to see why they want him back for at least one more season.

Carmelo Anthony situation

Carmelo Anthony is still on the New York Knicks, although there's a good chance he will change teams before the next season starts. Cleveland Cavaliers have expressed their interest in him and there is no doubt that the Knicks small forward would enjoy playing together with his friend, LeBron James.

However, the Houston Rockets seem to also be interested in Anthony and we might see an interesting two-team race for him this summer. The Cavaliers are hoping he will receive a buyout from the Knicks soon. According to Stephen A. Smith, Carmelo Anthony is willing to accept a buyout offer and he is also willing to take a pay cut in order to sign with Cleveland.

Considering he'd be on a championship contender, this seems to be the option both Anthony and the Cavaliers would benefit from.
