This offseason, the Cleveland Cavaliers have to bring in a few quality depth pieces. Cleveland of course has to find ways to solidify their starting 3 position for next season, too, and generally, improve their shooting.
Along those lines, t’s sensible how the Cavaliers have been linked to players such as Dorian Finney-Smith and Bojan Bogdanovic, among others, when it comes to possible trade targets. In a similar light, Cleveland being linked to free agents such as Max Strus, Grant Williams, Jalen McDaniels, for example, could make a difference for their rotation.
What’s apparent, though, is while clarity for their starting 3 position is important for the Cavaliers from here, Cleveland does have to help out its bench. Doing so would give the team more balance, and would provide assistance to their quartet of Darius Garland, Donovan Mitchell, Evan Mobley and Jarrett Allen.
The backup 5 spot and potentially depth lead guard are areas the Cavs should feasibly look to address this offseason, too, to go with the wing outlook, as an aside.
Having said that, though, it is imperative the Cavaliers look to bolster their perimeter outlook by adding guys who are either shooters that could have defined roles, or ideally, two-way players they can utilize who can affect games in multiple ways.
One free agent target who has seemingly been a rumored possibility is Donte DiVincenzo, who is reportedly likely to decline his $4.7 million player option for next season, per Michael Scotto of HoopsHype. If DiVincenzo were to do so, he’d be an unrestricted free agent.
DiVincenzo would be a solid Cavs signing that’d impact winning.
DiVincenzo, who will turn 27 next season, has been an effective contributor, both in starting and bench roles in his career to this point. In his tenure thus far in the league, he’s had 9.1 points per game, which in varying roles and often as a lower-usage player, has been decent, and there’s reason to believe his improved shooting can carry forward.
