There are many rumors surrounding the Cavs currently.
The Cavs are a team that happens to be all over the place at the moment. They’re rumored to be interested in a flailing prospect, Cam Reddish but the asking price is said to be outrageously high. There are also rumors about Collin Sexton getting traded with Kevin Love, Sexton re-signing, Sexton re-signing but not for the max, and of course, Love getting bought out.
Then we have rumors surrounding Koby Altman’s tenure as Cavaliers GM and whether or not it could be over (hopefully) by the All-Star break. According to that rumor, Cavs owner Dan Gilbert is willing to give Altman and head coach J.B. Bickerstaff until the All-Star break to determine if the team is heading in the right direction. Altman has had four drafts and five offseasons to get this team right. If he hasn’t by then, it’s hard to say he deserves to stick around.
That takes us to now. Despite the lack of moves in this offseason, the Cavaliers have taken the socialite, tabloid approach to basketball moves. Rather than do anything at all, they are content to simply appear in the headlines as often as possible. Even if the rumors are far from true.
Hey, it worked for Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton; keep yourself in the news and you’ll always stay relevant, right? This way the Cavs don’t actually have to make moves to improve their team and the good folks covering the team can just say they “tried”.
That’s how some of these rumors sound, or at least, that’s what we’re hoping for with some of these rumors. The Cavaliers have been attached to three pretty big ideas lately and we are looking at each and every one of them, even if we’re hoping some aren’t true.
