Cavaliers notebook: Veteran point guard Deron Williams, waived by Dallas Mavericks, could be on Cavs’ radar

CLEVELAND: Even without making another move prior to the trade deadline, Thursday went well for the Cavaliers. Two targets they’ve coveted throughout the trade season both became available.

Deron Williams was waived by the Dallas Mavericks following Thursday’s 3 p.m. trade deadline and appears to be the Cavs’ primary target.
