Report: Cavaliers interested in Mario Chalmers, once he gets healthy enough to play

Last March, Mario Chalmers suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon — less than ideal for a guy heading into free agency that summer. Chalmers has been active with his rehab, working on his conditioning, but is about a month away from a potential return to the league.

When he is ready to go, the Cavaliers are interested, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.

...rumbles persist that Cleveland has strong interest in reuniting LeBron James with his old Miami teammate Mario Chalmers when the veteran point guard is sufficiently healthy to return from Achilles surgery in March.

LeBron doesn’t have anyone to yell at in Cleveland, Chalmers would help with that.

Also, with Mo Williams out injured, the Cavaliers are in desperate need of backup point guard depth. Right now behind Kyrie Irving is Kay Felder — Chalmers would be a clear upgrade. Once healthy.

It’s something to watch.
