Cleveland Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue hopes a midseason tryout session will upgrade the team's roster after the National Basketball Association champions posted a losing record in January.
Aside from the four veteran free agent players, other free agent prospects are expected to workout for the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Cleveland Cavaliers rumors have the team linked to Lance Stephenson and Mario Chalmers, who are both free agents that could sign soon.
Lue said the workout went well, but didn't say if it would result in signing a player. A step in the process as we're trying to get better. He could give the second unit of the Cavs an immediate boost, providing the team with a lot of depth at the point guard position.
The Cavaliers began the season 28-8, but stumbled through most of January and were 32-15 going into Wednesday's game against Minnesota. "I stayed in touch with pretty much everybody I played with in Miami". The next game for the Cavaliers comes on Saturday (Feb. 4) against the New York Knicks.

The characterizations in the Washington Post's report are unsurprisingly at odds with the version released by the White House. In a statement, a White House official said the meeting with Ambassador Joe Hockey was "productive".
LeBron James questioned last week whether the front office was satisfied with one championship and called the team's roster "top heavy".
Cleveland has one roster spot available, but could open up another slot should the team elect to waive center Chris Andersen, who is out for the rest of the season with a knee injury. His last good year was with the Lakers in 2013-14, when he averaged 10.5 points and 4.9 assists in 41 games.
Chalmers was considered the favorite based on his experience playing with James during the Maiami Heat's four consecutive trips to the NBA Finals from 2011-2014. Chalmers is another interesting option based on his time with James in Miami, but he's recovering from an Achilles injury, and those can be extremely hard to overcome. The 30-year-old point guard played two games for the Sacramento Kings early this season, before being waived in November 7, and Cleveland.com reported Thursday morning that Farmar was "impressive" in the workout with the Cavaliers.
Love missed a game last month with back problems and was forced to leave Sunday's win over Oklahoma City in the first half.
Guard J.R. Smith broke his right thumb in December and could be out until the playoffs.
