Article Summary:

League sources confirm the Cleveland Cavaliers have been granted an $8.9 million disabled player exception due to Ricky Rubio’s season-ending ACL tear.

With the exception now in play, the Cavaliers are now able to freely trade Rubio’s expiring contract in order to upgrade their roster.

The Cavaliers can also use the exception, even after trading Rubio, and also acquire another player to soften the blow from losing him for the season.

But, the most important thing of all to note is that exception expires if Rubio is traded or waived before it’s used.
