The real deal behind the Cleveland Cavaliers trades involving Keith Bogans -- Terry Pluto

The Cavs traded Keith Bogans to give them more options if they need to make a trade in the middle of the season.

By waiving Lucas and Thomas, the Celtics have created the necessary room to complete the long-awaited signing of free-agent swingman Evan Turner (while also creating an open spot that...

Cavs trade Keith Bogans to Sixers for second-round pick, trade exception

INDEPENDENCE: The Cavaliers have traded Keith Bogans and a 2018 second-round pick to the Philadelphia 76ers, a league source confirmed.

Boston Celtics Roster Reset: Training Camp Edition

Decisions, decisions, decisions... On Thursday night, while Derek Jeter was capping off a historic career in New York and Eli Manning was looking more like Peyton, the Boston Celtics made a blockbuster trade, sending Keith Bogans to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

They managed to dump the exiled Bogans for three non-guaranteed contracts, a promising young second round draft pick in Dwight Powell, two second round picks (2016 and 2017), and a $5.3 million...

The Cavaliers acquired veteran wing Keith Bogans from the Boston Celtics Thursday on the eve of training camp. The Cavs have been shopping for another rim protector to add to the frontcourt, but with center Brendan Haywood ahead of schedule and the market for bigs fairly thin, the Cavs bundled Erik Murphy, Malcolm Thomas, John Lucas III and rookie Dwight Powell in exchange for Bogans, a 6-foot-5 guard/forward who has a non-guaranteed contract in excess of $5 million both this season and next.
