Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com says that the Cavs are interested in Royce O'Neale, a veteran 3-and-D player. The Nets' sixth-year player has started 51 games this season. He is averaging a career-high 9.4 points per game, 4.9 rebounds per game, and 4.0 assists per game. He is also making 40.3% of his 3-point shots.
