Last night after the Golden State Warriors beat the Cleveland Cavaliers, there were a lot of reports when it comes to discontent amongst the Cavs locker room. While LeBron James continues his goals of another NBA Finals appearance, many players in the locker room have started to become pessimistic at the future of the team this season, especially if they don't make a move to bring in another star player, such as DeAndre Jordan. With a few players to dangle out for a trade and a huge draft pick based on the Brooklyn Nets finish this year, there is still a chance to make a trade to help the team.

According to Marc Stein, the Cavaliers will definitely make an NBA trade before the deadline.

Cavaliers NBA trade deadline plans

Marc Stein said that he spoke to a "trusted source" and learned that the Cleveland Cavaliers have every intent to make "at least" one trade or deal before the NBA trade deadline on Deb. 8 comes and goes. However, Stein wondered if there was anyone available that would close the gap between the Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors.

The question now is what Marc Stein meant by his statement. He didn't say that Cleveland was making a trade. He said that the Cavaliers were making at least one trade, which means that there could be multiple moves. Stein questions if there is one deal out there that can close the gap and suggests that the Cavaliers might need to make multiple moves.

What could Cavaliers do in a trade?

The one obvious NBA trade that the Cleveland Cavaliers could pull off is the DeAndre Jordan trade. The idea is to send Tristan Thompson, Channing Frye and the Brooklyn Nets first-round pick from the 2018 NBA Draft for Jordan. That would allow them to move Kevin Love back to power forward with Jordan taking over the center role.

Uproxx suggests that the Cleveland Cavaliers have a "core" starting unit of LeBron James, Isaiah Thomas and Kevin Love and that they want to add talent to help them. That means possibly a Jordan at center and then maybe a move at shooting guard, as Dwyane Wade seems best suited for second-team.

However, there is also a chance that the Cavaliers could pull off a big trade where they send someone like a Kevin Love to another team, especially if they bring in DeAndre Jordan.

There has also been some talk that people inside the Cavaliers franchise are disappointed with the drop in defense from Isiah Thomas compared to Kyrie Irving.

The NBA trade deadline is coming in a few weeks, so expect to hear something from the Cleveland Cavaliers soon.
