The Cleveland Cavaliers are in an enviable position.
In case the blockbuster deal goes through, they will have a point guard in Isaiah Thomas who is coming off a year where he outperformed Kyrie Irving (with a considerable amount) during the regular season.
Even when the trendy of the new acquisition remains debatable, LeBron James will be able to withstand more responsibilities, while Kevin Love and Jae Crowder team up to maintain the 2016 champions playing at a high degree. Let’s not overlook the impact of incorporating Ante Zizic because depth.
If the transaction is vetoed due to Thomas‘ wellbeing, the Cavaliers will soldier with a malcontent Irving or even locate a new taker for its point protector. In any situation, they’ll stay filled with talent.
This offseason will be deemed a failure if they can’t find a huge return for Irving–and the Thomas swap certainly qualifies as such–because fixing their biggest problem (defense) was not just done together with the additions of Derrick Rose, Jose Calderon and Jeff Green. However they can score with aplomb, which should make them favorites.
James doesn’t appear to have diminished as his age swells. Love loves more chemistry than ever with his superstar teammate, and Tristan Thompson is only advancing. This may be an old roster, but it is 1 brimming over with talent, and most of the major pieces fit together nicely.
