The Cleveland Cavaliers are somehow in an enviable position.
If the blockbuster deal goes through, they’ll have a point guard in Isaiah Thomas who is coming off a year where he outperformed Kyrie Irving (by a considerable amount) during the regular season.
Even when the trendy of the new acquisition remains debatable, LeBron James is going to be able to withstand more responsibilities, while Kevin Love and Jae Crowder team up to keep the 2016 champions. Let’s not forget the impact of adding Ante Zizic as frontcourt depth, either.
If the transaction is vetoed due to Thomas’ wellbeing, the Cavaliers will soldier with a malcontent Irving or even find a taker for its point protector. They’ll stay loaded with talent.
This offseason will be deemed a failure if they can not locate a massive yield for Irving–along with the Thomas swap certainly qualifies as such–since fixing their main difficulty (defense) wasn’t exactly done with the improvements of Derrick Rose, Jose Calderon and Jeff Green. However they can still score with aplomb, which will make them favorites.
Because his age swells, james does not appear to have diminished. Love enjoys chemistry than ever and Tristan Thompson is improving. It is 1 and nearly all of the key pieces fit together well, although this may be an old roster.
