If the Cavs DONT get Lebron?
After the 3 team trade the Cavs have opened up a total of $21.7 million in cap space.
If they do not land Lebron, do you think they spend it? If so, on who?
I think if they miss out on Lebron they will give max money to Greg Monroe.
A frontcourt of Greg Monroe and Tristan Thompson is very formidable... Thoughts?
I think lebron will return to cleveland and join irving wiggins and company, he also may recruit mike miller and maybe ray ray.
I've heard cavs are trying to work a deal involving kevin love and are considering trading first overall pick andrew wiggins. ( I believe the cavs will seriously regret this move if it happens.)
I highly doubt t-wolves will trade k.love for just wiggins anyway but if they did I'm not sure who is better off longterm. I think Wiggins could be as impactful in this league as Lebron has been so moving him for Kevin Love with out a signed extention which will never happen, is just dumb. Love wants gsw or lak. not cleveland.
Back to the subject you posted.
I believe the cavs will target trevor ariza if he hasnt already gone to dallas if in fact James makes up his mind before that and his decision does not include playing in c-town.
I doubt the cavs will mess with monroe despite the great need he would fill because detroit has said they will match any offer anyway. Of course if they can't find a taker for josh smith (which they won't) maybe they will let monroe walk so who knows, but I wouldnt offer him a max deal and I doubt the cavs would either. They will likely try to get aldrich next summer if they fail to land lebron this summer.
As far as Monroe/Thompson , I believe Anthony Bennett will prove over the course of this season that his offensive skill leapfrogs him to more effective minutes than Tristan Thompson who has never really developed offensively.
