With the most recent Cleveland Cavaliers‘ trade for guard Donovan Mitchell, formerly of the Utah Jazz, the Cavaliers have one of the most formidable rosters on paper in the entire NBA.

With a team that has 3 2021-22 season All-Stars (Darius Garland, Donovan Mitchell, and Jarrett Allen), Cleveland looks to build upon an already solid season. Also, the only other team that had 3 All-Stars last season was none other than the NBA champions, the Golden State Warriors, with All-Stars of Stephen Curry, Draymond Green, and Andrew Wiggins.

With the next season a bit over a month away, and even preseason starting at the end of this month, most NBA fans cannot wait for the season to start, and personally, I cannot wait either.  Next season looks to be a very exciting season, with new faces on new teams and a very talented rookie class incoming, there is much to be excited about as a fan of the Association.

Anyway, with the Cavaliers acquiring another All-Star to their roster, they should be able to be one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference, considering their roster makeup. How Donovan Mitchell will play with the other Cavs’ players will remain to be seen, and how he plays can really determine how this season will go for Cleveland.

All of that said, here are my opinions on what the best and worst-case scenarios for the Cavaliers would be for the next season ahead. We’ll first begin with what would qualify as the best-case for Cleveland in 2022-23.
