Cavs get future picks for LeBron

The Cavaliers made sure they got something back for LeBron James.

After losing the superstar to Miami, the Cavs worked out a deal with the Heat, acquiring two future first-round draft picks and two second-round picks.

Cleveland gets two first rounders starting in 2013 and continuing through 2017, and the Heat’s 2012 second-round pick from New Orleans and a future second-round pick Miami acquired from Oklahoma City.

The Cavs also have the right to swap first-round picks with the Heat in 2012. Cleveland also picked up a trade exception that could be worth up to $16 million.

”This deal provides us with multiple key assets and additional flexibility as we move forward for both the short term and beyond,” Cavaliers general manager Chris Grant said in a release.

It didn’t appear the Cavs would do a deal with Miami involving James, especially after Cleveland owner Dan Gilbert lambasted the MVP in the hours after he announced he was leaving.
