The Cleveland Cavaliers are in an interesting situation heading into NBA free agency, with the team clearly needing to make some changes in order to take a step forward after getting embarrassed in the NBA playoffs with a first-round exit.
That said, the Cavaliers are expected to be busy on Friday with free agency and didn’t waste any time taking care of one of their own.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Cavaliers have agreed to a new two-year contract with guard Caris LeVert.

LeVert became a vital piece to the puzzle in Cleveland during the 2022-23 campaign, as his shooting became quite an asset coming just short of 40% from beyond the arc.
With LeVert now in the fold for two more years, it’ll be interesting to see what the team does moving forward in free agency and if a big move is coming.
ESPN’s Brian Windhorst dropped a little nugget the other day about the Cavaliers potentially working on something big this summer in order to increase their odds of being a legitimate title contender in the Eastern Conference.
As of right now, nothing has surfaced that has linked the Cavaliers to a big move, but the team might be doing a great job of keeping things under wraps outside Windhorst teasing the prospect of something substantial happening in Cleveland.
Only time will tell if the Cavaliers brass has more up their sleeve and if the team can considerably upgrade their roster this summer with their sights on winning a second title in the team’s history.NEXT: NBA Insider Reveals A Top Cavaliers Free-Agent Target
