The Cleveland Cavaliers have exploded and are finally playing the style of basketball fans expected of them when the season started. After struggling to a sub-.500 record to start the season, the Cavaliers have reeled off nine-straight wins to improve to 14-7 and sit just 3.5 games out of first place in the Eastern Conference. The best news for Cleveland fans is that the team might not be finished adding stars yet.

The Cavaliers are winning again

The chemistry is finally coming together with the Cleveland Cavaliers. While the Cavs weren't sure what everyone's roles were when the season started, they are finally finding their spots.

Dwyane Wade is playing well from the bench. Jose Calderon is a huge surprise, stepping in for Derrick Rose after the point guard fell to injury. J.R. Smith is back in the starting lineup where he belongs.

LeBron James is still one of the top players in the NBA and Kevin Love is finally playing like an All-Star again - both on offense and defense. The Cleveland Cavaliers are also going to get Isaiah Thomas - possibly in the next few weeks. When he is there, the Cavaliers could be even better than they look right now.

Plus, there are new NBA trade rumors that the Cleveland Cavaliers could get a new NBA superstar from a team that is collapsing early in the NBA season.

Who is the Cleveland Cavaliers looking at?

The Los Angeles Clippers are struggling hard right now. They let Chris Paul leave for the Houston Rockets and decided this was now Blake Griffin's team. In Houston, Paul is shooting a low 11.1 points-per-game and has only played in seven of the Rockets 21 games. While that made the Clippers look good, Griffin is also now injured again with an MCL sprain in his knee.

The Blake Griffin injury could keep him out of action for eight weeks and with the Clippers sitting at 8-11 this could mark the end of their chances to compete this season. That might make DeAndre Jordan expendable and Bleacher Report indicates that the Cleveland Cavaliers could be interested.

Tristan Thompson is hurt right now but should be back soon.

The idea is that the Cleveland Cavaliers could trade Thompson, Iman Shumpert and a 2018 first-round draft pick for DeAndre Jordan. This is not as good as possibly getting a very high Brooklyn Nets first-round pick but bringing in Shumpert and Thompson could give the Clippers two weapons in exchange for one and give the Cavs a star center to pair up with Kevin Love in the paint.

Cleveland Cavaliers beat reporter Joe Vardon also chimed in and said DeAndre Jordan is someone the Cavs definitely would be interested in.
