Tyronn Lue says Tristan Thompson will remain starting center for Cavaliers in wake of trades

Tyronn Lue says Tristan Thompson will remain starting center for Cavaliers in wake of trades

Tristan Thompson ain’t losing his starting spot just yet. The Cavaliers suddenly have a jam-packed frontcourt with four starting-quality players after the trade that brought Isaiah Thomas and Jae Crowder to Cleveland. Crowder would certainly be an overqualified sixth man, and with talk of playing Kevin Love more at center, it was possible to wonder if moving Tristan Thompson to the bench could be a possibility for a downsized, more space-based lineup. Well, Tyronn Lue says that we’ll have to pump the brakes on that for now. "Right now we're just trying to get all of our pieces together...

The Cavaliers have no plans to trade Kevin Love, per report

Although the Cavs have tried to move him before, he’s not going anywhere now. Kevin Love has been through a lot throughout his tenure with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Ever since the team traded Andrew Wiggins for him, he has been the subject of countless trade rumors and scrutiny. Despite proving he can be effective against the Golden State Warriors in last year’s Finals, those trade rumors persisted. According to a report from ESPN’s Zach Lowe, Love can breathe easy for the time being as the Cavs currently have no plans to trade him: The Cavs have contemplated trading Love off and on...

Why Kevin Love can thrive without Kyrie Irving around

Why Kevin Love can thrive without Kyrie Irving around

With Kyrie Irving out of the picture, here’s why Kevin Love can still dominate on the floor. There’s one moment in Game 5 of the 2016 NBA Finals that probably depict the relationship between LeBron James and Kevin Love accurately. It’s the first quarter and the Cavaliers are trying to fight off the Warriors as much as the Oracle Arena crowd. At the 5:33 mark, with the Cavaliers down six, Love appears to blow a defensive rotation and him and James appear to have a quick discussion. To many, it appeared as if Love was going for a high-five and James was more concerned with pointing out...

Tyronn Lue working on lineups featuring both LeBron James and Jae Crowder

Crowder’s role next season could be fluid. The value of Jae Crowder is that he can play both small forward and power forward. The problem: the Cavs have All-Star level starters at both positions in LeBron James and Kevin Love, likely sending Crowder to the bench and playing fewer minutes. Cavs coach Tyronn Lue, however, doesn’t see Crowder as only James’ backup and, per cleveland.com’s Joe Vardon, is working a lineups that feature both forwards. This, of course, makes sense. In the modern NBA, and against teams like the Warriors, the Cavs want to be flexible and be able to switch...

NBA 2K18 is unveiling a new “All-Time” roster this year, featuring all 30 NBA franchises best players for you to go head-to-head with, and those rosters were released today. Here’s who’s suiting up for the Cleveland Cavaliers: Price, Irving, James and Daugherty are all no-brainers for the starting lineup, though I think it’s fair to wonder if someone like Larry Nance or Kevin Love deserved to be in that role slightly more. All told, this is a fairly thorough roster. It’s really important to note...
