Unlike last summer, this Cavs season was not as exciting as last summer with LeBron James coming home and Cavs trading for Kevin Love.
This off-season, the most important thing for general manger David Griffin and owner Dan Gilbert was to keep the current core intact and adding a few pieces around the current team and they did just that.
- Mo Williams
- Richard Jefferson
- Sasha Kaun
The Cavs are currently still in contract negations with restricted free agent power forward Tristan Thompson, who is demanding a five-year, $94M max contract offer, while the Cavs are standing firm at 5-years, $80M.
Both sides reached agreement on a contract when free agency started, but Thompson backed out at the last minute.
So, with that said, I give the Cavs an A for the offseason moves right now.
The Cavs added a backup point guard they much needed especially last offseason and that was their goal at the trade deadline, but couldn’t strike a deal until this offseason. Williams, is familiar with the Cavs and the city of Cleveland as he was here in LeBron James first stint with the Cavaliers.
The Cavs added more bench depth as well, which was the key thing missing during the NBA Finals.
This current team is primed and ready for a critical year in their championship window.
