FANTASY: Cavaliers rotation projection
While the Cavalier challenge for an NBA title this season, which players have what it takes for Fantasy owners? Our Chris Towers breaks down expected playing time for all of them.
This was an interesting offseason for the Cleveland Cavaliers , huh?
This is going to be a very top-heavy roster, not unlike the one LeBron just left behind in Miami. Love, Irving and James are going to be elite Fantasy options in nearly any role, but there might not be much opportunity for role players to rack up numbers beyond them.
This team is especially shallow in the frontcourt, but you probably won't want to rely on Anderson Varejao anyway.
Beyond the big three, Dion Waiters might be the only player worth selecting on Draft Day.
|Name||POS||Projected playing time|
|Kyrie Irving||PG||35-37 MPG|
|Matthew Dellavedova||SG||18-20 MPG|
|LeBron James||SF||36-38 MPG|
|Kevin Love||PF||36-38 MPG|
|Anderson Varejao||C||26-28 MPG|
|Dion Waiters||SG||28-30 MPG|
|Tristan Thompson||PF||18-20 MPG|
|Mike Miller||SG||16-18 MPG|
|James Jones||SG||6-8 MPG|
|John Lucas||PG||6-8 MPG|
|Brendan Haywood||C||6-8 MPG|
|Joe Harris||SG||6-8 MPG|
