What are the implications for the Cavs, if any?
Does this accelerate his departure?
Expand his list destinations or reduce it?
It reduces his trade value IMO. From the perspective of the receiving team, he's now just a good expiring. You're not trading for him and hoping to re-sign him on a team-friendly deal. Next summer was already going to be an overpay summer.
I'd like to get value for TT and Clarkson this season. I'd even take on a two-year deal if the pick consideration was right. I genuinely like both guys and there were games last season when Love was hurt when they looked like only NBA players on the roster. But, I don't see either one in the Cavs long-term plans.
