The Cleveland Cavaliers are again involved in a major NBA trade rumor just hours after they sent Kyrie Irving to the Boston Celtics. In a discussion by Colin Cowherd and Nick Wright on "The Herd" with Colin Cowherd, Wright shared his thoughts about the future of the Cavaliers. He thinks last season's runners-up will continue adding key players this offseason. The potential next main target according to him is All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins of the New Orleans Pelicans.

Wright's proposed trade would see Cousins head to Cleveland to join the likes of LeBron James, Isaiah Thomas, Kevin Love, and possibly Dwyane Wade.

In return, the Pelicans are getting Iman Shumpert, Channing Frye, and the 2018 first-round pick the Cavaliers got from the Celtics. If this swap materializes, Wright is convinced that the Cavs are going to have a team capable of winning the Eastern Conference and competing or even beating the Golden State Warriors. Cousins will start alongside Thomas, Wade, James, and Love. The bench is also loaded since it has Tristan Thompson, Jae Crowder, Kyle Korver, J.R. Smith, and Derrick Rose.

The suggested trade is a great move for the Cavaliers, though it may be hard to pull off. New Orleans gave up a number of assets just to acquire Cousins from the Sacramento Kings back in February. The Pelicans are hoping his tandem with Anthony Davis would end the franchise's playoff drought.

This is why it is almost unlikely for them to let him go after just one season.

Melo to Cleveland Remains Possible

Another player the Cavaliers may want to have on their radar is New York Knicks superstar Carmelo Anthony. Earlier this summer, there were trade rumors saying Anthony wants to play with James and Irving in Cleveland.

Irving's departure might have changed his mind, but a report by the New York Post stated that "Melo" playing for the Cavs is still achievable. Cleveland has a few assets that the Knicks could be interested in like Shumpert, Crowder, and the 2018 first-rounder. These can be used by the Cavaliers to complete a trade that will allow James and Anthony, who are close friends, to team up even for only one season.

Cavaliers won trade with Celtics

Boston added a young rising star in Irving, but many believe that Cleveland won the recent mega trade. Irving will surely be the Celtics' franchise player, together with Gordon Hayward. Their duo has the potential to bring back the organization to title contention. However, by sending Thomas and Crowder to the Cavaliers, the Celtics just made their Eastern Conference rivals better and tougher. They also provided them with what they needed, a backup center in Ante Zizic, plus a future pick that can be utilized in several ways.
