Cavs Free Agency: Cleveland To Target Mirza Teletovic And Alexey Shved, According To Report

The Cleveland Cavaliers will be looking far and wide -- really far, really wide -- during the NBA free agency period.

FoxSportsOhio.com's Sam Amico had an article Tuesday discussing the Cavs' interest in foreign players.

From the article:

You don't have to be American to play the zany game of NBA free agency.

In fact, the Cavaliers seem to be banking on the idea that you're not. At least, that's the early buzz, as the Cavs seem to be turning their focus on names you don't often hear (and might not be able to spell), following the opening of the market July 1.

While everyone else is going gaga over free-agent prizes such as Deron Williams, Steve Nash and Eric Gordon, the Cavs apparently are content to take a more prudent approach.

The article goes on to name Mirza Teletovic -- a 6-9 forward from Bosnia who played in Spain last season -- and Alexey Shved -- a 6-5 guard from Russia.

Teletovic's agent is cited saying that his client will land in either Cleveland or Brooklyn Nets. Shved, too, has a short list of potential landing spots: Cleveland, Minnesota or Memphis, according to the article.
