The Cleveland Cavaliers made a ton of moves at the trade deadline and brought in a batch of younger superstars while shipping off some older veteran players. While the team got younger, and according to LeBron James, more exciting, the players leaving included two former MVPs in Dwyane Wade and Derrick Rose and one of last season's top players in Isaiah Thomas. While the incoming names were not as big -- including players like Jordan Clarkson, Rodney Hood and Larry Nance Jr. -- they have a higher ceiling than the outgoing players, such as Wade, who is already talking retirement, and Rose, who is still without a team.

Cavaliers looking at signing a veteran to help

That doesn't mean that the Cleveland Cavaliers don't want veteran leadership -- especially if it is on the bench from a former star who isn't interested in starting over young talent. That is why the Cavs interest in former Los Angeles Lakers star Corey Brewer is a good thing.

It is also slightly humorous. The biggest NBA rumors heading into this season was that LeBron James was heading to the Los Angeles Lakers when the summer comes. However, the Cleveland Cavaliers have now picked up two Lakers stars in a trade and might bring another one with Corey Brewer. Meanwhile, the Cavs shipped a troublesome star in Isaiah Thomas to the Lakers, as well as Jae Crowder -- a player who had some bad things to say about Cleveland after he moved.

What role would he play with the Cavaliers?

The Los Angeles Lakers bought out the contract of Corey Brewer after the NBA trade deadlines. Brewer, a forward, would fill in the hole that Cleveland has when it comes to their frontcourt, especially until Kevin Love returns from injury. It was Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports who first reported on the buyout on Wednesday.

While the Cleveland Cavaliers need a bench veteran, as mentioned, who will be satisfied with his role, the rumors right now indicate that Corey Brewer wants a "legit role." With Larry Nance Jr. making a difference defensively, Brewer could be an offensive threat from the bench. However, he was only averaging 3.7 points over 12 minutes a game this year for the Los Angeles Lakers.

The good news is that Corey Brewer said that he doesn't mind playing the role of a mentor, as long as he is also playing basketball in the games. Brewer would play reserve to LeBron James, and while that won't give him a ton of minutes, it is still a great place to play and puts him in line for a possible NBA title opportunity with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
