Cavaliers point guard Mo Williams pleaded to the team on Twitter this afternoon not to be traded.
"Pls don't trade me, I'm not ready to go. I'm begging. My work ain't done yet. I'm on both knees....pls. I'm serious," Williams wrote on his Twitter account (mogotti2).
Rumors that Williams would possibly be traded picked up speed this week since the Cavs do not have any selections in Thursday's NBA Draft. By trading Williams as part of a package, the team could earn a draft selection, which would likely be spent on a center.
Williams has been labeled as expendable because of his lackluster play during the playoffs.
Los Angeles Lakers coach Phil Jackson said today he is leaning toward retirement.
The leading candidate for the Cavs' coaching vacancy is Byron Scott, but it has been speculated that if Jackson retires, Scott would be a leader for the Lakers job.
If Scott accepts the position in Los Angeles, that would put another stall on the Cavs' search, which also included Michigan State's Tom Izzo decision to stay with the Spartans.
Last season, the Cavaliers drafted Christian Eyenga, a European player not yet ready to move to the NBA. The selection remains controversial, as the team continues rebuilding with veterans as they try to win an NBA title.
