Cavaliers deal two, drop two as roster takes shape

The Cleveland Cavaliers trimmed their roster Saturday ahead of the upcoming National Basketball Association season, trading forward Richard Jefferson and guard Kay Felder to Atlanta while releasing center Kendrick Perkins and guard Isaac Hamilton. They also received cash from the Cavaliers, per Wojnarowski, and two second round picks (2019 and 2020), according to USA Today's Sam Amick.

Jefferson, 37, averaged 5.7 points and 2.6 rebounds last season in his 16th National Basketball Association campaign.

The trade gets the Cavaliers' roster to 15 ahead of the start of the regular season.

Jefferson played 20 minutes a game for the Cavaliers last season, and at age 37 he could give the Bucks solid minutes behind Khris Middleton and Mirza Teletovic at the three. In turn, Atlanta sent inconsequential rights to European players back to Cleveland.

Cleveland will create two trade exceptions ($2.6 million and $1.4 million) with the trade. The 37-year-old forward was recently waived by the Atlanta Hawks following a trade with the Cleveland Cavaliers in what was clearly a salary-dump move by the latter.

Cavs general manager Koby Altman thanked Jefferson for being a part of the 2016 championship team in a conversation Friday evening explaining the trade, according to a source. Jefferson's excellent presence in the Cavs locker room culminated in the creation of the Road Trippin' podcast featuring Jefferson, teammate Channing Frye, and Fox Sports Ohio reporter Allie Clifton.

"Oh, god, come on", Frye replied.

"These situations and decisions are some of the toughest to be in and have to make. While they were here they were great guys".
