It’s the new year and your Cleveland Cavaliers are currently sixth place in the Eastern Conference with a record of 22-17.

While the Cavs have hit a slump due in part to injuries, health and safety protocols, and some position concerns, this team is in a much better position than where they were at last year. Their most recent 114-101 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers is a sure sign of that.

Last season the Cavs finished 22-50, a clear indicator they were still in the midst of their rebuild. Now, things are different with this team. Sure, there are still some factors that need to be addressed, such as a reliable wing that fits with the timeline of this team.

As it stands now the Cavaliers are no longer in a rebuild, in my mind these Cavs are on the cusp of a renaissance. An age of Cleveland basketball that hasn’t been seen in several years, or decades depending on who you ask.

With the Big Three of Darius Garland, Evan Mobley, and Jarrett Allen – the Cavaliers seem set on their franchise point guard, as well as the frontcourt of the future, however, there are some gaps I believe this team still needs to address. As I had mentioned previously, this Cavs team desperately needs a versatile small forward that can play the wing.

In my opinion, a young wing that could potentially fit the mold of head coach J.B. Bickerstaff’s system would be the Atlanta Hawks’ Cam Reddish. While Reddish might not be the number one option to trade for, he is certainly worth the consideration. Throughout this article we will examine Reddish’s potential role with the Cavs, if he were to find himself in The Land.
