No. 2 point guard: AJ Green

While he may not be atop many lists, AJ Green showed true potential as an NBA player as he played incredibly well both in the G-League and during his minutes with the Milwaukee Bucks. He is one of the best pure shooters from his rookie class and showed out other skills during his time in college.

He was both the primary scoring option and the lead facilitator during his time with the University of Northern Iowa. He helped his team overcome great challenges and win tough games through his multi-faceted offensive game.

Giving him a chance to be the point guard off the bench could turn out in the Cavs’ favor as he is an elite shooter already, but also has the length and strength to be a quality defender off the bench. One sector of Bucks fans rooted for the Bucks to trade Grayson Allen at the deadline in favor of promoting their rookie to the full roster and taking much of his minutes.

He may not be the most talented option, but he has the ability to grow into exactly what the Cleveland Cavaliers need, and he has shown in the past that he is fully capable of doing so. Taking the chance on the second-year undrafted free agent has the potential to pan out very favorably for the franchise.
