It has been a roller coaster 2017-18 season for the Cleveland Cavaliers. They haven't performed the way everybody thought they would, but even so, they are currently third in the Eastern Conference standings. They hold a 27-17 record in the East, but many believe that they don't have enough fire-power [VIDEO] to win the Eastern Conference this season, let alone win the NBA Finals.

Having said all of this, there have been many rumors lately about the Cavaliers making a move before the trade deadline [VIDEO] in February. DeAndre Jordan has been mentioned a lot as a possible acquisition for the Cavs, but also some other interesting names have been brought up.

One of them is Charlotte Hornets' All-Star point guard - Kemba Walker.

Walker about to be traded?

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Charlotte Hornets have made Kemba Walker available in trade talks. Charlotte drafted Walker as the ninth pick in the 2011 NBA Draft but had little success in the postseason with Walker on the roster. In 41 games played so far this season, the 6-foot-1 point guard has averaged 21.7 points and 5.8 assists per game while shooting 42 percent from the field. The 27-year-old Kemba made the All-Star team last season, but the Hornets have seemingly decided it's time to move on.

There's no doubt that almost every team in the NBA would welcome having Walker on their roster, and one of them is the Cleveland Cavaliers.

It seems that the Cavs also have the necessary pieces to land Walker, but apparently, no official offer has been made yet.

Kemba teaming up with LeBron James?

The All-Star point guard has one more season remaining on his current contract with the Hornets before he becomes a free-agent in 2019. This fact makes him even a better solution for the Cavs at the point guard position since they would have him for at least one more season after this one. As mentioned previously, the Cavaliers have a lot of good pieces to offer to the Hornets in exchange for Walker.

Other than Iman Shumpert and J.R. Smith, the Cavaliers would probably have to include Brooklyn's 2018 first-round pick in the deal. There is also a possibility that the Cavaliers include Isaiah Thomas in this deal, but the Hornets would also have to let go some of their other key-players besides Walker.

BleacherReport's Dan Favale suggested a possible trade for these two teams in his recent report. Favale wrote that the Cavs could send Iman Shumpert, J.R Smith, Channing Frye, Cedi Osman, Miami Heat's 2020 second-round pick and Brooklyn's 2018 first-round pick in exchange for Nicolas Batum, Michael Carter-Williams and Kemba Walker. Wow. That would definitely be a blockbuster deal for the Cavaliers, and they could also keep Isaiah Thomas. Stay tuned, it just might happen!
