Multiple sources today were reporting that the Cleveland Cavaliers have interest in trading for Markieff Morris.

From Chris Haynes at cleveland.com:

Influential figures within the Cavaliers' locker room are open to the notion of trading for disgruntled Phoenix Suns power forward Markieff Morris, cleveland.com has learned.

They believe the Cavs can get the most potential out of him in the role he'd be assigned.

They're intrigued with the possibility of adding another stretch-four to back up Kevin Love. Also, Morris would serve as an insurance policy for an injury.

What would the Suns get in return?
