    I’m curious on some of these picks. Anthony Tolliver as a 3-4 tweener is a position that Anthony Bennett fills. Unless you are bringing him with the intention of starting him at the 3 you are sort of pushing in the direction of considering Bennett a bust and pushing him partly out of the rotation.

    Our top priority this free agency should be to resign Spencer Hawes, if we can get him for a reasonable price he is a great piece going forward, this also considers the fact that there are not many realistic free agents at the center position. Marcin Gortat is either going to be overpaid by a team, or will be overpaid by Washington to stay.

    As sad as it is, Varejao should probably be let go if we can get Hawes back his injury history and deteriorating skill is not worth the 9 million tag, we could look into a player like Jordan Hill for probably $5 mil a year who is basically a younger Varejao and can play both big man spots, his rebounding % is on par with some of the top rebounding leaders this season.

      The thing that draws me to Tolliver is that he’s a master at corner threes. That’s something the Cavs have been terrible at hitting the last couple of seasons, and Tolliver would likely spend a lot of time floating on the baseline offensively, so I think he and Bennett could play together. Tolliver is also strong enough to be a small-ball center, a role he played a ton of in Atlanta. I think that would give the Cavs some really interesting lineup options, and he’s a decent defensive player too.
