According to the Plain Dealer, the Cavs will be looking to move West this summer. Hmm: “Andy Miller, the agent for several Cavs, including guard Sebastian Telfair, said Saturday that Telfair has elected to pick up his $2.7 million option for next season. The Cavs have not yet received the paperwork, but it is expected to become official next week. Telfair was limited to just four games with the Cavs after being part of the Jamison trade in February as he recovered from a ruptured muscle in his leg. The quick point guard averaged 9.8 points in games at the end of the season. Telfair’s future with the team is uncertain. He is a trading chip because of his expiring contract, but the Cavs are expected to attempt to trade backup guard Delonte West and that could make Telfair more valuable. West has a partially guaranteed contract of $4.6 million that is worth just $500,000 if he’s waived by August 5. That type of deal that could provide more than $5 million in savings for another team depending on how a trade is structured.”
