Koby Altman sat down with LeBron James approximately 24 hours before the trade deadline.

James had only spoken with Dan Gilbert once since June 30th and his relationship with Altman has been more distant than it had been with David Griffin. James has let Rich Paul communicate with the Cavaliers on roster issues.

Altman assured James that management was determined to reshape the roster.

Altman shared the framework of possible trades for Jordan Clarkson, Larry Nance Jr., Rodney Hood, George Hill and DeAndre Jordan.
