George Hill: We all have to be Robins to LeBron James's Batman

With Isaiah Thomas and the Big Three structure gone, George Hill said the Cavaliers need to be the Robins to LeBron James' Batman.

The Cavaliers have been struggling lately, and they know something has to change.

According to the New York Times, Cleveland is pursuing separate trades for both Clippers center DeAndre Jordan and Kings guard George Hill. The report also says the Cavaliers have their eyes on Lou Williams.

Tristan Thompson and J.R. Smith have been identified as potential make-weights in any proposed deal.

Jordan, 29, is averaging 11.8 points and 14.9 rebounds per game. The Cavs have struggled in the paint this season, so Jordan's physical presence and elite rebounding could eradicate that weakness.

Williams, also with the Clippers, is averaging 23.2 points per game this season after scoring 50 in a game earlier this month. He is a proven elite scorer off the bench or in the starting lineup.

Hill became available by the Kings after they decided to rest two veterans every game for the remainder of the season. Hill is averaging over 10 points per game this season.

The NBA trade deadline is February 8. If the Cavs make a move for Jordan is would likely make them the favorites in the Eastern Conference.
