In an effort to bolster their backcourt situation, the Cleveland Cavaliers are expressing interest in a trade for Sacramento Kings guard George Hill, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

Cleveland has emerged as an interested suitor, with the Cavaliers pursuing Hill to potentially slide into a dual-guard role, starting at either backcourt position or playing as a reserve, league sources said.

Hill, 31, joined the Kings on a three-year, $57 million deal in July, but the franchise has transitioned toward a youth movement and has made clear to Hill and other veterans that the plan will be to play the young core moving forward. Sacramento has given primary point-guard duties to No. 5 overall pick De’Aaron Fox for the second half of the season.

In 37 games this season, Hill has averaged 10.5 points, three rebounds and 2.7 assists while shooting 45.6 percent from 3-point range. He averaged 16.9 points and 4.1 assists for Utah a season ago.

Sources: Brandon Ingram Out Three-to-Four Months after Thoracic Outlet Decompression Surgery

Los Angeles Lakers forward Brandon Ingram underwent thoracic outlet decompression surgery on his right arm Saturday, and sources told ESPN he is expected to make a full recovery in three to four months.

Ingram was shut down last week after a medical examination of his sore right shoulder revealed deep venous thrombosis — a condition caused by a blood clot. That clot was removed and Saturday’s procedure assured better blood flow in Ingram’s upper body.

“This couldn’t have been a better set of facts for a clot,” Ingram’s agent, Jeff Schwartz of Excel Sports Management, told ESPN.
