It appears that almost every team in the NBA is getting better this summer, via free-agency or trades. The Cleveland Cavaliers are trying their best to keep up with the rest of the league as they are looking for ways to improve their roster. It became apparent that they need more firepower when they lost convincingly to the Warriors in this year's NBA Finals.

While there were many speculations that the Cavs could potentially land Paul George this summer, that didn't happen as he finished in Oklahoma. After that, the Cavaliers started looking for other ways to get better and they decided to re-sign Kyle Korver.

Earlier this week, they signed veteran point guard Jose Calderon and on Saturday it was announced that they signed another good, veteran player.

Jeff Green teaming up with LeBron

Brian Windhorst of ESPN reported on Saturday that the Cavaliers have signed a one-year deal with Jeff Green. Green was a free-agent this summer and the Cavs deal is reportedly worth around $2.3 million. Green is a versatile 6-foot-9 forward and he will help Cleveland both on offensive and on the defensive end of the floor.

Green was the fifth overall pick in the 2007 NBA Draft, drafted by the Boston Celtics. He played for the Orlando Magic last season and averaged 9.2 points and 3.1 rebounds per game in 22.2 minutes of playing time.

Green didn't play at all during the 2011/2012 season due to his heart condition, but he managed to come back and be effective. His best year was during the 2014/2015 season with the Boston Celtics when he averaged 17.6 points and 4.3 rebounds per game.

He is an athletic and versatile player who can defend multiple positions, just what the Cavaliers have been looking for.

Reportedly, before Green decided to join Cleveland he had multiple conversations with LeBron James about it. Obviously, it helped as Cleveland got another solid player that can help them compete for the title next season.

Mack in Orlando for the next two years

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported on Saturday that the Orlando Magic have reached an agreement with Shelvin Mack. Apparently, Mack will sign a two-year deal worth $12 million with the Magic.

Mack entered the league in 2011 as a second round pick, drafted by the Washington Wizards. He played for the Utah Jazz last season and averaged 7.8 points and 2.8 assists per game. Mack has great size for the point guard position, and at 6-foot-3 he can defend both the point guard and the shooting guard positions in the NBA.
