Summer League Live Thread: Cavs vs. Bulls

Wakanda Forever, Cavs Fans! The wine and gold take on the Bulls at 9:30 EST, Saturday on ESPN2. It should be a fun one, as the Bulls have some intriguing players including rumored Cavs target, Duke’s Wendell Carter Jr., the No. 22 pick of 2018, Boise State’s Chandler Hutchison, and undrafted free agent, Maryland’s Melo Tremble. The Bulls have eight undrafted free agents, four from 2018, three from 2017, and one from 2016. Especially fun: The have a guard named Matt Williams, and a center named Matt Willms. That won’t get confusing at all.

Go Cavs!

I know it’s only summer league, but Kevin Knox looked like he has the 2nd most potential of anybody in this draft class, after Jackson, who legitimately looks like he could be Gobert with a 3 pt shot. Knox has Lebron/Giannis attributes. Unfortunately for him, he was drafted by the Knicks, but I guess we’ll see.

Ayton and Bagley look like they are going to depend on their point guards and rebounding a lot, and neither looks like an elite defender. Doncic isn’t playing. Young came back strong after 2 flops, but he didn’t answer a lot of questions. Carter looked great, but you can kind of see he tops out as Al Horford.

Cavs need to work with Sexton on his offball movement. Half the time he doesn’t have the ball he was standing on the far side of the court with his hands up calling for the ball. Other than that, he was pretty solid once again. Passing wasn’t as present, but he had a couple nice ones even though the Cavs offense wasn’t really running as smoothly without Cedi. And he had some really impressive drives, but he’s still going to have to learn to finish in traffic and develop a Eurostep to open things up a little more. We still have to see how he does with NBA spacing as opposed to summer league spacing, though. Wasn’t so impressed by Zizic. Still a long way to go if he wants to be more than so-so reserve. He had a ton of trouble with Carter’s athleticism, quickness and activity. I don’t see how he ever guards NBA starters and switches onto guards for 30 min a night. Carter looks better than advertised, by the way… Not sure what the Bulls are going to do about their point guard issue, but him and Markkanen should be an interesting frontcourt pair in the… Read more »

Because if he retains his job, he’s going to have to endure all the Lebron related drama nonsense.

I say Lebron is middle of the pack as far as his problems. He’s still got Lavar Ball, Lance Stephenson and Rondo to deal with, plus all the speculation the Lakers are gonna Blatt him as soon as Lakers start underwhelming.

I don’t remember that part. Maybe something about them becoming less reliant on the 3, but he mostly talked about them becoming more dynamic and having multiple playmakers.

Sexton looks to be a great defensive rebounder for a guard which leads to transition O off of opposing misses. Just an element to the Cavs we haven’t had since Kyrie.
