This does not come as a surprise, as it was reported as early as Thursday that the Cavaliers were a likely landing spot if and when Williams was bought out. Cleveland has been in dire need of a backup playmaker for much of the season, and getting Williams on a buyout is the perfect remedy to that particular issue. For Williams, he gets a big opportunity to be an important player on a title contender.
