The Cavaliers acquired John Lucas III, Malcolm Thomas and Erik Murphy from the Utah Jazz for Carrick Felix, a second-round pick and $1 million in cash, a league source confirmed to the Beacon Journal. Yahoo Sports first reported the trade.
In the process, the Cavs acquired $3.3 million in non-guaranteed contracts, which could be another step toward completing a deal for Kevin Love, while shedding the $800,000-plus Felix is guaranteed next season.
