The Cleveland Cavaliers have quite the dilemma when it comes to their shooting guard/small forward situation. With a lot of guys looking to earn time, it makes you wonder who should get more priority over the others?

With six players that can play the shooting guard or small forward position, the Cleveland Cavaliers have a situation on their hands. Once they sort out the time allotted to Collin Sexton, Brandon Knight, and Matthew Dellavedova at the point guard slot, they must then decide who gets the right to play alongside any of the three.

Cedi Osman, Jordan Clarkson, Deng Adel, Jaron Blossomgame, David Nwaba, and Nik Stauskas all are jockeying for time on the floor. The question is who deserves the minutes over the other five guys?

While I don’t make the decision as to who plays and who doesn’t, it’s worth trying to sort out the mess. So I’ve gone ahead and made a priority list for the Cavaliers’ two’s/three’s situation.

The priority ranking will go from one to six, with six being the least prioritized and one being the most.

6. Jaron Blossomgame

When Jaron Blossomgame was brought into the fold back in early December, the Cavaliers signed him to a two-way contract along with Jalen Jones. The former Clemson product didn’t have any type of expectation or certain trait he brought to the table.

Now playing in 27 games for the Wine and Gold, Blossomgame has left much to be desired.

He had a fifteen-point performance in the middle of December that saw him light it up from the perimeter, hitting three of his four three-pointers attempted, per Basketball Reference. Overall, Blossomgame went 6-for-7 from the floor in a showing that gave Cleveland a reason to want to play him.

But since then, it’s been really nothing but duds for Blossomgame. On the season, he’s averaging 4.2 points and 3.7 rebounds in 16.3 minutes per contest.
