Well, the NBA free agency courtship period started at midnight, and the current Cavs roster currently doesn’t look much better than the ones that we’ve been forced to watch for the last four years. But, last night, the Cavs did get Kyrie Irving to agree to a five year max extension for $90 million dollars, which kicks in after this season. (More on that in a future post). For now, let’s take a look at some of the Cavs free agent options. I’ve tried to inform my opinions with the probability that the players come to the Cavs and their RAPM stats from 2014 and earlier. Here’s the Cavs current depth chart. That’s a lot of contracts.
|First Team||Second Team||Third Team|
|PG||Kyrie irving||Jarrett Jack||Matthew Dellavedova|
|SG||Dion Waiters||Sergey Karasev||Joe Harris|
|SF||Andrew Wiggins||Carrick Felix||Scotty Hopson|
|PF||Tristan Thompson||Anthony Bennett||Dwight Powell|
|C||Anderson Varejao||Tyler Zeller||Brendan Haywood|
