When the Cleveland Cavaliers aren’t dodging the New York Knicks’ attempts to sell them on a Carmelo Anthony trade, or auditioning available free agents, they’re engaged in some serious finger-crossing.
They’re hoping/rooting/wishing for a quality veteran or two to pop onto the free-agent market via buyout after the Feb. 23 trade deadline passes.
Los Angeles Lakers guard Jose Calderon and Dallas Mavericks center Andrew Bogut, league sources tell ESPN.com, have emerged as two players who greatly interest the Cavs in their search for bench help.
