This offseason, the Cleveland Cavaliers might be in a dilemma, especially if any rumors appear of superstars wanting out of their respective cities.
The Cleveland Cavaliers, with the Brooklyn Nets pick, will have the ability to ask for just about any superstar willing to part with their team. However, for the first time in quite some time, it might be teams calling Cleveland.
In order for the Cavs to be intrigued by any offer, a couple things would need to happen. For starters, the Cavs would have to lose in the NBA Finals. More specifically, they’d have to lose to the Golden State Warriors, again proving that they have yet to put together a team more talented than the Warriors.
That’s nothing to be discouraged about, but the fact of the matter is LeBron James doesn’t have forever to bring Cleveland more championships.
If the Cavs management truly wants to win the NBA Finals before they exit the LeBron-era, they will need to bring in another superstar to help James take down the NBA’s goliath, Golden State, assuming the current team isn’t capable of the feat.
The other thing that will need to happen is one of the top talents in the NBA will need to ask to be traded, just as Irving did this past offseason. Without a request, it’s unlikely you see a player like our first option, Anthony Davis, traded.
That said, let’s get into our options and how each of them makes sense for the Cavaliers.
