After losing to the San Antonio Spurs, which marked six losses in their last seven games, Stephen A. Smith of ESPN shared the news, "from what I am told," that owner Dan Gilbert wants to sell the team.

Along with the losing month and team meeting which questioned Kevin Love’s illness, Smith’s latest report only adds to the drama. As Smith has not been the most reliable source, it will be interesting to see if other reporters like Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN or Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports legitimize his story.
Earlier in the season, LeBron James revealed he ‘obviously’ would want to buy the Cavaliers when the time comes. However, his current focus is to help his team return to playing championship-level basketball.
