The Cleveland Cavaliers keep making offseason news, and if all indications are true, they may be far from done. LeBron James and company fell short of their bid to win back-to-back titles last season, and now even after trading away star point guard Kyrie Irving to the Boston Celtics, the latest rumors are that the Cavs are far from done.

Cleveland looking to trade their first-round pick?

Ever since LeBron returned to his hometown, the bar has been set higher than ever.

Win a world championship or bust. So after the Cavaliers pulled off the shocking deal that sent Kyrie Irving to the Celtics for Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic, along with New Jersey’s 2018 first-round pick and the Heat's 2020 second-round pick, rumors are stating that the Cavs may be willing to part with that number one pick to obtain a star player that can help Cleveland win now.

Sports report via ESPN indicates that the Cavs "wanted a veteran ready to help LeBron (James) now, but a blue-chipper was the priority." In a perfect world, the Cavaliers may be willing to deal both draft selections if they could land say someone like Anthony Davis, DeMarcus Cousins or Marc Gasol. One thing we have come to learn about the Cavs, where there is smoke, there is usually fire. Obtaining one of those three stars could be all Cleveland would need to sail back into the NBA Finals in 2018.

Dwayne Wade, LeBron James part two?

Dwyane Wade has to be one of the most sought after players according to the latest NBA rumors that technically isn’t even on the market! Wade is currently under contract with the Chicago Bulls, but many whispers are floating around the league that the former Miami Heat star will eventually reach a buyout with the Bulls, making him free to go where he wants.

If Wade reached a buyout, could he possibly be ready to team back up with James, only this time in Cleveland?

The two have won championships together in South Beach, and a recent report from Bleacher Report indicates that an associate close to Wade "has been telling people" he may end up with the Heat or Lakers this season if the Bulls buy him out - although a return to Miami seems doubtful. Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com previously reported the Cleveland Cavaliers were also a possible destination.

Now all this is speculation, considering that Wade is still under contract in the Windy City, but whispers from the people in LeBron James' camp are saying that they are "fairly confident" Wade will end up in Cleveland.

While all of these rumors sure have the Cavs’ fans pumped for the new season, the only thing that really matters is can Cleveland improve enough to take down the Golden State Warriors? The way things look right now, these two may be on a collision course for a record fourth straight matchup in the NBA Finals next season.
