A year after LeBron James jilted them for the Miami Heat, reducing a 61-win team to a 19-win team, they're reportedly trying to regain their mojo with one bold move. ESPN The Magazine, citing NBA sources, says the Cavs want to acquire the second pick in the draft to go with the first (which they lucked into in the lottery).
