Since he was acquired by the Cleveland Cavaliers in a trade with the Memphis Grizzlies in January, Speights has once again been productive. He's averaged 15.4 points and nearly seven rebounds per game in five games with Cleveland, both significantly better than his season averages with Memphis. Still though, Speights might once again be on the move.
Bob Finnan, who covers the Cavs for the Morning Journal in Ohio, reports that Speights is expected to opt out of his contract at the end of the season, which could lead the Cavs to try and get some return for him before free agency.
"The consensus around the league is that Speights, who has a player's option on his 2013-14 season, will undoubtedly become a free agent," Finnan writes. "That's why the Cavs are expected to entertain offers for him at the Feb. 21 trade deadline."
