realistically..  the only viable player we could get is george and even then.. that's a stretch. 

 

All i care about is if Ingram, Kuz, Hart and ball IMPROVE for next season. Imagine how balling this team could be if just our young guys can just up their performance? Cashing out summer 19 on big free agents and being serious contenders would be extremely realistic.

Only agree slightly as we need veteran experience esp in close games!

Nice skillset.   I think he will go higher than he's projected right now (30th by NBADraft.net).

Are you being serious?

 

If so, how does he compare to Thomas Bryant and Zubac?

Kid is good, he has spirits in him but he is just 20

he needs time, but he can shoot and that always made him look better

 

yes, my cousin lives in berlin and im basicly there every summer and once we had this exhibition game and he came there with friends introduced us. We kind of had some nice pick up games and then I coached him 2-3 times.

It was fun

 

hes a cool kid but like i said, still needs time

So he's worth a late 1st round pick?

According to FiveThirtyEight the Cavs project to win 46 games.

Could end up in the low 20s or even 19th.

That'd be awesome. There are 14 teams from #5 to #18 separated by only 4 wins, crazy

Exactly. Cavs project to win 46 and there's 8 other teams that project to win between 44 and 46 so that pick actually could end up in the high teens.

 

Of course, the pick could also land 4th in case they miss the playoffs. The chance is very small, but if LBJ weren't a cyborg and tweaked his ancle and Detroit made a run it theoretically could happen. For some reason they "only" made the pick top 3 protected.

 

In the real world, the Cavs probably make a little run when Love comes back and the new guys start to gel and end up 26th.

Not that concerned with the pick yet as theres a lot of games left to determine seedings. With the brilliance of the last drafts late round selections Im hopeful but not losing any sleep over it. Also itd be great to resign IT to a favorable deal as well as Randle as hes been beastin' we'll have 72 hours to match any offer so its another nail biter post season!

If we are drafting in the early/mid-20s i think the main priority - as always - is to go with the BPA and hope someone slips like we saw last season with OG Anunoby.

 

Positionally, it wouldn't hurt if that guy was a defensive wing that can shoot because those guys are in short supply, unlike centers. Centers take longer to develop, the free agent market will be flooded with those guys and we might bring back Lopez, Randle, Zubac and Bryant.

 

Based on recent draft history i have completely given up trying to predict who they will draft, but i have a lot of confidence in their ability, so i'm fine with whoever they draft.

 

Someone like Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Gary Trent Jr. or Lonnie Walker all could slip. Maybe even Collin Sexton.

Ehh not really.  They need wings that can shoot.  You can never have too many of them.
