If the Chicago Bulls want to trade embattled point guard Rajon Rondo, the Cleveland Cavaliers might come calling.

On the hunt for a backup to Kyrie Irving, the Cavaliers have a close eye on the situation in Chicago, where Rondo has recently spent time on the bench after disagreements with coach Fred Hoiberg.

Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com dropped the report:

If the Bulls aren’t going to play him, he’d like to be traded or bought out of his contract so he can choose his next team.

The slim margins of defeat against New York and Utah should be a sign of concern, if you are of the frame of mind that the Cavaliers were going to be an all-time great offense and wouldn’t need defense to win. They should have blown those teams away and avoided the situations they ended up in.

The Cavs are watching this development.

We chronicled the drama between Rondo and the Bulls yesterday, with the point guard admitting he was open to a trade:

Rondo acknowledged that if the Bulls continue to keep him on the bench, he will speak to management about trying to find a new team.

“Absolutely,” he said.

Things haven’t hit crisis mode between Rondo and the Bulls just yet, but it continues to look like the team won’t give him notable usage.

The Cavaliers could absolutely use Rondo off the bench behind Irving. He’s still averaging 7.2 points, 7.1 assists and 6.5 rebounds per game on 30.2 minutes, a clear upgrade over DeAndre Liggins and Kay Felder.

Whether Rondo wants to act as a backup while getting a shot at a title is a different conversation. But it’s the sort of move Cleveland might have to make to repeat.

Cavaliers acquire Kyle Korver, complete trade with Hawks

  Cavaliers acquire Kyle Korver, complete trade with Hawks Kyle Korver has joined the Cleveland Cavaliers, who acquired one of the NBA's best 3-point shooters in a trade from Atlanta. The Cavs sent forward Mike Dunleavy, guard Mo Williams, cash and a protected future first-round draft pick to the Hawks for Korver, who gives the NBA champions another offensive weapon. The trade was agreed upon Thursday and completed Saturday.The 35-year-old Korver will help Cleveland offset the loss of J.R. Smith, who will be out until April after having thumb surgery. The 6-foot-7 Korver is a career 43 percent from 3-point range and also has plenty of postseason experience.

Cleveland Cavaliers . Dallas Mavericks. Denver Nuggets. The Chicago Bulls certainly need to make some roster changes, but would trading Rajon Rondo make sense? The Chicago Bulls did some serious revamping this offseason. So much so, that for the first time in what seems like years, fans were commending the front office.

That trade , of course, did not happen, but Rondo has been dogged by trade rumors ever since. An alternate narrative, “Danny Ainge wants to trade Rajon Rondo ”, made for good talk show fodder. Rondo ’s comfort here, the team’s very favorable draft and salary cap situation going forward, and Healthy Celtics are eager for rematch with Cavaliers December 29, 2016 | 8:48 AM. College Sports.
