2. Trade the 8th pick for CJ McCollum
If LeBron James is a member of this roster for the foreseeable future, the Cleveland Cavaliers must trade the eighth pick in the NBA Draft.
The team is strapped financially, and the selection is one of few assets the club can use to get better in a hurry.
It’s important to remember the seventh pick was used last year that helped the Timberwolves land Jimmy Butler. The current draft class is much deeper than 2017’s, so it’s not out of the realm of possibility to think the No. 8 pick can’t reel in a star.
McCollum spent some time this postseason about luring LeBron to Portland, but ESPN’s Brian Windhorst wisely chipped in his two sense, arguing the Cavs should trade the eighth pick for him!
McCollum averaged 21.3 points per game last season and is a career 40 percent shooter from 3-point range.
With the Cleveland native back in The Land, James would have someone else he could rely on to score the ball.
