The Cleveland Cavaliers can dream. An NBA offseason is a combination of blood, sweat and tears for front offices as they toil away, watching thousands of hours of film on hundreds of draft prospects, self-evaluating the players on the roster and working the phones with teams and agents to determine who is available to sign or trade.
