For the Cavs be succesful this season, as well as going forward, they will need to have a quality shooting guard. This season, the team has Anthony Parker and Daniel Gibson playing the position. But the Cavs will have to find a quality long term solution for the position very soon. Parker is not a long term answer.
The team needs a young player to pair up with Irving. In two preseason games, Irving has been an impressive scorer, as well as a good passer. An equally talented shooting guard would possibly give the Cavs one of the best guard duos in the league and potent offense. Omri Casspi looked impressive in the second preseason game and Gee brings lots of energy when on the court. With that considered, shooting guard should be addressed in the first round of the 2012 NBA Draft. A quality shooting guard would make a potential starting lineup featuring Andy, Thompson, Casspi, Irving and said shooting guard. For the Cavs to get better, they must get younger at key positions. And starting Kyrie Irving at point guard and a rookie shooting guard may be just what the doctor ordered for the Cavaliers. And it just might get them to championship contention sooner then later.
