Standing in line recently, while wrapping up another successful holiday shopping effort, my mind began drifting towards the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Specifically, which of the 2013 unrestricted NBA free agents should the Cavaliers be targeting?
I also thought about the 46-131 overall record they've amassed since 2010 but quickly dismissed that. I decided to instead focus on how to improve moving forward.
Along with the draft, and exploring the trade market, free agency is a third opportunity to do specifically that.
It's worth noting that player options, team options and early terminations will eventually shape the totality of this summer's free agent class.
For now, though, there is a list of unrestricted free agents currently identified.
Here are two of those 2013 free agent lists from Hoopsworld and ESPN.com for your reference.
Chris Paul, Dwight Howard and Andrew Bynum will headline this year's class if you hadn't heard. While they wo...

Kyrie Irving’s game on the floor is developing nicely, but his pimpology off of it needs some work. The reigning NBA Rookie of the Year had to do some damage control on Twitter after a picture of him with his arms around two girls appeared online for a brief period early Christmas morning. Our friend Stiletto Jill snagged it while it was up, and she says it was posted to his Instagram...
Cleveland's Kyrie Irving is a super fast guard on the court and apparently is quite fast on his spin-control for a photo of him with a couple of women draped all over him (h/t Larry Brown Sports). Normally, who can't blame for a young, professional basketball player for enjoying his bachelor days and just living it up. I know I would if i was banking like Irving and...
Speculation has already begun as to where LeBron James will play if he becomes a free agent. One of the places according to a report from Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal is Cleveland.
James, who played seven seasons in Cleveland, has a relationship with Cavaliers players Kyrie Irving and Tristan Thompson. His agent, Rich Paul is a local guy and also represents Thompson...
When you hear the Cavaliers want to add more draft picks, you look at Wednesday's 87-84 win at Washington and understand why.
Byron Scott started a rookie center, rookie shooting guard, second-year power forward and second-year point guard. That would be, in order, Tyler Zeller, Dion Waiters, Tristan Thompson and Kyrie Irving.
Alonzo Gee started at small forward -- and while...
The Cleveland Cavaliers were without Anderson Varejao again last night. The veteran center sat out the Christmas Day game with a bruised right knee. It was the fourth-straight game he has missed because of the injury.Royce Young of CBS Sports says Varejao did not even make the trip with the team yesterday to take on the Wizards. He remained in Cleveland for treatment. Varejao...
The Cavaliers claimed guard Shaun Livingston on waivers from Washington.
To make room on their roster, the Cavs waived guard Donald Sloan, who appeared in 20 games for Cleveland this season.
Livingston made four starts for the Wizards this season. He was waived on Sunday by Washington and the Cavs had until 5 p.m. Tuesday to claim him. He averaged 3.7 points, 2.2 rebounds and 2...
Could LeBron ever return to Cleveland?credit: fullcourtpumps.com
Could LeBron James really return to Cleveland as a Cavalier after all that has happened with Dan Giblert and The Decision?
It seems ridiculous, but some people think it could be a possibility when his contract with the Miami Heat runs up. Jason Lloyd of Ohio.com is one who believes it could happen.
Yes, it’s the...

The Cleveland Cavaliers and Washington Wizards entered Saturday on six-game losing streaks.
While the Cavaliers ended their skid with a surprising victory, the Wizards could be even more frustrated after coach Randy Wittman failed in his effort to get ejected from his club's latest loss.

The Cavaliers are seeking their first back-to-back road wins of the season. If all five starters can reach double figures in scoring, like they have the previous two games, you have to figure the Cavs have a shot. The Wizards have lost seven in a row and will be without forwards Trevor Ariza (calf) and Trevor Booker (knee), as well as guards John Wall (knee) and A.J...
