Cavaliers GM David Griffin Says Team Is Looking to Trade for Playmaker

The Cleveland Cavaliers already acquired Kyle Korver in a deal with the Atlanta Hawks, but don't expect them to stop scouring the trade market.

On Friday, Cavaliers general manager David Griffin told the media the team isn't finished trying to improve its roster and find help for stars Kyrie Irving and LeBron James.

"It's something where we're all pretty keenly aware that it would help take some burden off of Kyrie and LeBron as our primary playmaker, so if we could get somebody else that could do it," he said, per's Dave McMenamin. "And it really doesn't even have to be a point guard; it's just we need playmaking."

Entering Friday night's game against the Sacramento Kings, the Cavaliers lost three of their last five games, where opponents exposed a thin backcourt behind Irving at times.

In the midst of that streak, shortly after the Cavs acquired Korver on Jan. 7, James told the media that "we got to get a point guard," per McMenamin.

The veteran Korver isn't that, but his three-point shooting prowess opens up another dimension within the offense led by James, Irving and Kevin Love.
