The Cleveland Cavaliers started the season strong, looking like one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference.
But, they have since cooled off and now sit with a record of 14-8 on the year.
Cleveland should be aggressive in improving their roster since they have a team capable of competing in the East.
Here are two players they should look to acquire.
Malik Beasley, Small Forward
The Cavaliers could use another shooter.
One player that might be available on the trade front is Malik Beasley of the Utah Jazz.
The 26-year-old is averaging 13.9 points per game this season while shooting 39% from three-point range.

Beasley has played a bench role for the Jazz this season and could do the same for the Cavs.
Cleveland currently only has one player on their bench averaging over 10 points per game.
Adding Beasley would be a strong move for a team looking to compete in the East.
Mo Bamba, Center
Another spot where the Cavs could add some depth is at the center.
Their starter is Jarrett Allen, but they do not have another big rebounder/shot blocker behind him.
One player that should interest them is Mo Bamba of the Orlando Magic.

The Magic are once again having a bad season, so they will be looking to part ways with a few pieces.
Bamba has the length and athleticism that most teams are looking for out of a backup center.
Also, with the emergence of Bol Bol in Orlando, the Magic have a big man to spare.
Bamba is averaging 8.2 points, and 4.5 rebounds, and has recorded at least one block in every game he has played 17+ minutes.
The 24-year-old still has good basketball ahead of him and could benefit from a change of scenery.
