The Cavs are a young team with currently the 6th pick. I think this team just needs time, they have good fits. Here I give them more future assets and make it great for them this season.

Trade 1: Trade up to the 4th pick via Orlando, using a 2023 Top 5 Protected 1st

Similar to the Luka Doncic trade up, this one allows the Cavs to go get their guy since there are 5 great guys this class, and they had pick 6. The Magic move down because they don’t like Green/Kuminga/Suggs enough when they could take Moody/Keon Johnson.

Trade 2: PF Larry Nance Jr to the Miami Heat for SF Andre Iguodala, a 2024 top 10 protected 1st, and a 2027 Lottery protected 1st

The Heat get their versatile 3+D power forward. Nance has one of the highest defensive ratings in the league. A defense with Oladipo, Butler, Nance, and Bam would be nasty. The Cavs get 2 1st rounders and a mentor for Isaac Okoro.

Trade 3: C Mfioundu Kabengele and a 2022 2nd rounder via Houston for a 2021 2nd round pick via LA Lakers

This one is very minor, the Cavs move up to the 2nd round to get a backup big.

Free Agency/Draft/Extensions

Extend Jarrett Allen to a 4 year, 84 million dollar deal This is fair value, he adds so much to this team as a rim runner.

Extend Collin Sexton to a 3 year, 63 million dollar deal Get your franchise player on a contract similar to Zach LaVine’s when he signed with Chicago

Extend Lamar Stevens to a 2 year, 2.6 million dollar deal A nice backup wing option

Sign Dennis Smith Jr to a 2 year, 2.6 million dollar deal They desperately need a backup PG and if Dennis Smith works out, he could be great for them off the bench

Stretch Kevin Love for 4 years and pay him 70 million he was great in Cleveland but he can now sign with the Nets an a minimum deal lol

Draft

Draft Jonathan Kuminga with the 4th pick The perfect defensive power forward next to Okoro and Allen. He completes their starting 5 perfectly.

Draft Ariel Hukporti with the 51st pick A guy who could be something nice as a backup center, reminds me of Jarrett Allen

Rotation

PG Darius Garland — SG Collin Sexton — SF Isaac Okoro — PF Jonathan Kuminga — C Jarrett Allen

Bench:

G Dennis Smith Jr — G/F Dylan Windler — F Cedi Osman — F Taurean Prince — C Isaiah Hartenstein

Depth pieces are F Lamar Stevens, G/F Andre Iguodala, G Matthew Dellavedova, C Ariel Hukporti, G Chris Chiozza ( two-way) F Rayshaun Hammonds (two-way)
