Here, we’ll predict three starting backcourt pairings we could see the Cleveland Cavaliers utilize next season.

With the novel coronavirus pandemic suspending the 2019-20 NBA season, it looks as if the Cleveland Cavaliers‘ campaign could be all but over.

Granted, all 30 NBA teams, even non-playoff teams such as the Cavs, could reportedly play more regular season games and we don’t know for sure at this juncture. Along with that, in terms of reported potential scenarios for a season resumption likely at ESPN’s Wide World of Sports Complex at Disney World, you can view those here and also here.

Throughout the year for the Cavaliers to this point, though, there were some ups but many downs and now, the Cavaliers are going to have to make some franchise-altering decisions this offseason that should affect the rotation next season and many seasons to come.

The biggest decision that the Cavs will have to make heading into next season is what the starting backcourt will look like. It’s safe to say that with Collin Sexton‘s recent play leading into the hiatus, he has one of the starting guard positions locked up for 2020-21, and now the Cavaliers will have to decide on who they want to pair him up with for the next season much of the time.

There are many different options and routes that the Cavaliers could go with for next season, including pairing Sexton up with a veteran or not, adding a backcourt partner with a player from the 2020 NBA Draft, or simply keeping the same backcourt they ran this season often.

Whatever decision the Cavs make will have to wait at least reportedly another couple of months or so, if they have more 2019-20 games even, as the virus has pushed everything back.

With that in mind, here, we will use the knowledge that we know now to predict three different starting backcourts that we could see the Cleveland Cavaliers feature next year.

Alright so we’ll get right into it with the first potential starting backcourt pairing.
