Additional Cleveland Cavaliers Info
Not too long ago the Cleveland Cavaliers were the top dogs of the Eastern Conference. Those days make for great memories in Cleveland. With the departures of Lebron James and Kyrie Irving, the team wound up finishing 19-63. They did, however, make a massive trade before the deadline, sending Alec Burks, Nic Stauskas, Wade Baldwin, and a 2021 second-round draft choice to the Houston Rockets for the Rockets 2019 first-round draft choice, 2022 second-round draft choice, shooting guard Brandon Knight, and small forward Marquise Chiss.
Following the NBA lottery, Cleveland ended up with the fifth selection overall, which they used on Vanderbilt freshman point guard Darius Garland, which is an interesting decision considering the fact that their top draft choice in 2018 was another point guard, Collin Sexton. A confusing decision by team management. With their second selection in the first round, they chose Belmont small forward Dylan Windler. In free agency, Cleveland made two smaller additions- shooting guard J.P. Macura and shooting guard Sindarius Thornwell.
Cleveland is in the early stages of a long rebuild and for the second time in his career, All-Star forward Kevin Love is stuck on a bad team. He is definitely a trade deadline candidate and probably will be dealt. The only question is to who?
