The Brooklyn Nets and Cleveland Cavaliers are considering swapping guards Marcus Thornton and Jarrett Jack, reports ESPN.com’s Marc Stein.

According to Stein, the Nets are worried about their ability to re-sign guard Shaun Livingston in free agency and want to shore up their backcourt:

The Nets, sources say, are already weighing their backcourt options because they’re concerned about losing Livingston to a richer offer than league rules will allow Brooklyn to make in free agency after Livingston exceeded all expectations last season playing on a minimum contract.

Thornton, who arrived in Brooklyn after a mid-season trade with Sacramento, has only one year left on his contract. Jack is under contract for more than $12 million total over the next two seasons.
