Cavs trade Miller, Haywood to Blazers
CLEVELAND, OH (The Spread) - The Cavaliers have agreed to trade Mike Miller and Brendan Haywood to the Blazers according to ESPN.com.
Brian Windhorst writes that the deal is "aimed to create future options and save luxury-tax money" for Cleveland. Windhorst also notes that the Blazers will likely cut Haywood, work a buyout with Miller, and receive two future second-round picks from the Cavs for "facilitating the deal with their cap space."
This trade had no affect on Cleveland's 2016 NBA Championship odds. According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Cavs remain 11/4 favorites to win next year's NBA title, while the Blazers continue to be long shots at 100/1.
