Ways the Cavs Can Break Out of This Funk

Updated on January 23, 2018


That is the main idea behind whether the Cavaliers can dig themselves out of this problematic stretch they are on. Following their latest lost to the Thunder where they gave up 148 points. I mean man, that is absolutely no D. Even though this is my first article, you will find out that I am a Lebron-believer. Where whatever problems are within the team, he can fix them. Yet, he might need help from upper management to do this by making a trade for a 3 & D player. There are a couple disappointments to bring up so far including JR's disappearance as a shooter and defender, Tristan Thompson's non-usage within the strategy, and how IT can fit in.


Options for the Cavs

Alright, besides just hoping this team can change how things are going which is insanely frustrating. There are options for the team before the deadline that can help turn this mess around.

Option 1: Trade Brooklyn 1st, Tristan, and Shump for DeAndre Jordan and Lou Williams

Now, it is a mystery on whether the Clippers would take this trade. But there is one thing we all know, Jordan is not resigning to play for even a bigger mess of an organization than the Cavaliers. So, what are there options? They can either hold on to him on hopes he changes his mind which he actually does often (FA Mavericks situation--Ouch) or trade him for assets to start the rebuild. If this trade went down, it would give the Cavaliers rim protection which would help their defense incredibly while also getting instant offense with Lou. With the help of DJ down low, it would help IT on the defensive side for many reasons. As you saw against the Thunder, IT was relied on to guard one of the most explosive guards in the league in Westbrook who legit just used his speed to go right around him and finish at the rim. With DeAndre, it would allow IT the confidence that he has help if he gets blown by which happens quite often.

Option 2: Trade Frye and JR for George Hill

If the Kings are looking to shed a contract of Hill, the Cars are perfect contenders to take on his remaining years. The Kings have found their future in De'Aron Fox, which has shown that they might have paid too much for Hill in the first place. It would make all sense for the Cavaliers as they would get a great defender and offensive option for the team.

Option 3: Trade JR and Frye for Nerlens Noel and Wes Matthews

Again, this trade would allow the Macs to get out of the tricky situation with Nerlens and shed Matthews contract to open up their salary cap for upcoming years. It would allow the Cars to get depth help with offense from Wes and defense from Noel. Also something to think about, Nerlens and LBJ share the same manager which would help as Nerlens said he would love to play with The King

Option 4: A combination of the top two


No matter what, the Cars are going to be active ahead of the deadline. It is just a matter of what they are going to do. I believe they must fix some major problems especially defensively. They must be able to defend better than they have over this terrible stretch. In order to get back to the Finals, they must figure this thing out,

One thing is for sure, they have to beat the Celtics in the playoffs or the mystery of Lebron in FA will continue on due in lack of confidence in the organization to help him get to where he wants to go.

Only time will tell.
