The Cleveland Cavaliers reportedly tried to acquire DeAndre Jordan from the Los Angeles Clippers right up until the day of the NBA trade deadline, but something happened that caused the deal to fall through.

Nobody wanted Iman Shumpert.

In an outstanding behind-the-scenes look at how the trade deadline turned into a frenzy for the Cavs, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Cleveland GM Koby Altman received the go-ahead from ownership to trade Jae Crowder, Channing Frye, Iman Shumpert and the the team’s 2018 first-round pick for Jordan. Shumpert has $21 million remaining on his deal and has not been very good, so the Clippers weren’t having it.

However, Croatia might have been the European country to land them if not for one big sticking point.

The Cavaliers will most likely try to center a deal for Jordan around Iman Shumpert , Tristan Thompson, and the Cavs' first-round pick, not the Nets'. According to Kyler, the Cavs are saying the team would only want to part ways with their own pick in the draft, as previous reports have

Winger asked if he could communicate with Shumpert about a potential buyout, but Altman wanted the talks to be more advanced before granting that permission. Altman had discussed a Jordan trade with Lawrence Frank and Winger for weeks but they were difficult to make progress on because the

Clippers general manager Michael Winger explained to Altman that LA didn’t want another shooting guard. He hoped to find a third team that would take Shumpert and his $21 million with draft compensation, and have the Clippers get a center back. Altman and Winger agreed to make more calls to try to find a third team to make the deal work. Winger wondered whether Altman would let him talk to Shumpert’s agent about a possible contract buyout, but Altman wanted trade talks to be further along before granting that permission.

Clippers president Lawrence Frank, Winger and Altman had talked for weeks on a trade, but they got nowhere. The Clippers wouldn’t take Tristan Thompson, JR Smith or Shumpert in a deal, and that never changed. As Wednesday wore on, Altman became more convinced that a deal with Los Angeles was within reach — only not with the Clippers.

Report: 'Tsunami' of trades could be coming this NFL offseason

  Report: 'Tsunami' of trades could be coming this NFL offseason We’ve already seen one major trade go down around the NFL even prior to the start of free agency itself. But don’t expect that to be the only blockbuster trade to go down this offseason. According to NFL Media’s Gregg Rosenthal, we can expect a ‘tsunami’ of trade activity once the calendar hits March.

USA Today reported that Iman Shumpert was arrested for suspicion of DUI back in September, and once that became public knowledge, the ball started rolling on NBA trade rumors that had Cleveland dealing Shumpert . All of this leaves us with a lot of circumstantial evidence of a potential trade

Cleveland Cavaliers swingman Iman Shumpert is reportedly on the block ahead of Thursday's NBA trade deadline. Continue for updates. Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee reported a potential deal for Shumpert is "sounding less likely at the moment."

When that deal fell through, the Cavs went back to some of their other trade scenarios. They had already determined that Isaiah Thomas had to go, which makes sense when you consider the reason report we heard about Thomas’ relationship with LeBron James.

Ultimately, Altman understood that making a deal with the Lakers would help pave the way for LeBron to sign with them as a free agent this summer, but that didn’t stop him. If James wants to go to the Lakers, they’re going to find a way to free up the cap space needed to sign him. The Cavs had no reason not to make the deal that they felt was the best one for them, especially after they were unable to land Jordan.

It has been expected for some time that Rick Nash would be dealt at the trade deadline, the only question was where. It has been expected for some time that Rick Nash would be dealt at the trade deadline, the only question was where. Now, according to Bob McKenzie of TSN, the New York Rangers have some idea of where they can send their pending unrestricted free agent, as they’ve asked him to submit his 18-team no-trade list. New York can now trade him to the twelve teams not included on the list, or ask him to waive the clause in order to deal with any of the others.
