With the Cleveland Cavaliers looking so far from championship material, they look in desperate need of searching the trade market.
Unfortunately for the fans, their front office has completely unrealistic demands.
When talking about Tristan Thompson, the Cavs said they were willing to move him for the "right price." We'd love to know what that means, considering Thompson is an objectively ineffective playing making $20 million per year.
Talk about dreaming, Thompson is currently having the worst season of his career, averaging only 5.3 points and 5.7 rebounds per contest. It's hilarious to think they can move him for Clippers star big man DeAndre Jordan.
In Los Angeles, Jordan is averaging 11.8 points, 14.9 rebounds, and shooting 66.1 percent from the field.
If Cleveland truly wants to swing a deal for Jordan, they'd definitely have to include the Brooklyn Nets' first-round pick.
Considering all the success the Cavs had while Thompson was injured, their priority should be to move him. However, the front office can't be offering role players in exchange for stars, and they have to be prepared to eat some of his monstrous contract, or they won't get anywhere in the talks.
There's still a ton of time for Cleveland to come to their senses, but as of now their current expectations are laughable.
