As the Cleveland Cavaliers begin life without LeBron James these four players should have better stat lines this season with The King playing in LA.
With LeBron James now playing with the LA Lakers, the Cleveland Cavaliers will be looking for new players to produce.
No one is going to fill James’ shoes, but there will be plenty of opportunities for guys on the Cavaliers roster who had to fall in line on the team’s pecking order behind The King.
For now, the Cavs appear committed to competing for a playoff spot in 2019, but to achieve that goal, Tyronn Lue‘s going to need to need some help.
Cleveland has commodities on its roster, but now the challenge becomes developing that potential into something that can actually help the Wine & Gold win some games.
Additionally, while the Cavs talk about winning, a couple players on this list may imporve their trade value by virtue of getting more opportunities with James gone.
Granted, we’d all take these players for what they were for another year of LeBron, but the good times had to end at some point.
These four players should see dramatic increases to their stat lines now that James is playing in LA.
