The Cleveland Cavaliers may not be done dealing quite yet after flipping Kyrie Irving to the Boston Celtics earlier in the week.

According to multiple reports, former first-round pick and 2016 NBA Champion Iman Shumpert is on the trade block. There are differing reports on who opened up the trade doors as ESPN reports:

“Lost in the attention surrounding Irving’s trade request is that Iman Shumpert also requested a trade after the season, multiple sources told ESPN. Cleveland was in talks to trade Shumpert and his $10.3 million contract to Minnesota or Houston, but both deals fell apart. Logic would tell you that the Cavs will remain motivated to find a team to take Shumpert.”

And Yahoo’s Shams Charania says:

The guard has averaged over seven points and three rebounds per game over his six-year career.
