REPORT: Cavs Players Told Jimmy Butler To Stay Away From Cleveland


The Cavs have some crazy stuff going on behind the scenes ever since their five game loss to the Warriors in the 2017 NBA Finals. First it was reported that LeBron James has already made up his mind and is heading to Los Angeles as a free agent in 2018. This was followed by a report that claimed Kyrie Irving has already told Team USA teammates that he is leaving Cleveland if LeBron does indeed leave in 2018. Then Cavs GM David Griffin strangely parted ways with the organization and talk of Chauncey Billups taking over for him came up. Via Chicago Sun-Times:

Over the past two days Paul George and Jimmy Butler have been linked to the Cavs, but players on the team have reportedly told Butler to stay away from what is a “volatile situation”.

No stranger to organizational dysfunction, Jimmy Butler was warned Tuesday night to stay away from the Cavaliers.

According to a Cleveland source close to the situation, several of the Cavaliers who had been prodding Butler to push for a trade from the Bulls the last five days were now warning him to stay away from a suddenly volatile situation.

With the ouster of Cavaliers general manager David Griffin on Monday, LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love could be headed for an unforeseen early breakup.
