That's why the Bulls were able to quickly find a taker for Dunleavy without giving up anything in return when they needed the cap space to sign Dwyane Wade.

LeBron James personally recruited Dunleavy to the Cavaliers during the 2015 offseason.

Dunleavy, 35, averaged 7.2 points and 2.7 rebounds per game last season for the Bulls. He shot a career-low 42.7 percent inside the arc and posted the lowest rebound and assist marks of his National Basketball Association career.

Acquiring forward Mike Dunleavy from the Chicago Bulls will not hurt the chemistry but it will propel the Cavaliers to contend against the challenges in the future.

That wasn't the only good news the Cavaliers got on Wednesday night.

The Cleveland Cavaliers and Richard Jefferson have agreed to a two-year deal, according to a... The deal is worth $5 million, per The Vertical's Chris Mannix. Cleveland will utilize a trade exception to get the shooting veteran, who remains under contract for $4.8 million.

Getting Dunleavy helps bolster Cleveland's bench, a move that could be even more important after the Golden State Warriors, who squandered a 3-1 lead in the NBA Finals against James and the Cavs, landed superstar Kevin Durant in free agency.

Mike Dunleavy was limited to 31 games last season with the Bulls. Rumors hinted that Jose will be sent to Los Angeles Lakers as they are planning to trade their point guard, D'Angelo Russell, this season.

We aren't all that far removed from seeing Jefferson's impact on the team, whether it's on or off the floor, and that will be key for the 36-year-old over, at least, the next two seasons.
