The Cavs would be wise to consider these three players.
The Cavs are loaded down low with Jarrett Allen, Kevin Love, Lauri Markkanen, Evan Mobley, and now Tacko Fall. There are also rumors the Cavs may tap Isiah Hartenstein to return to the squad but seems only likely if and when Love is dealt/bought out. Despite their investment in the biggest of bigs, The Cavs need help at the wing.
The team is still developing their talent, so they may need help everywhere, but the Cavs traded for Ricky Rubio and traded for Markkanen while drafting Mobley. If the team still needs help at the point guard, power forward, or center, we won’t know until the season is well underway.
The one obvious piece that needs dept and improvement is “the wing” or the shooting gaurd/small forward positions. Right now the Cavaliers have Isaac Okoro (who really can’t shoot), Cedi Osman (who dealt with the yips in ’20-’21), and Dylan Windler (M. Night Shyamalan’s inspiration for Mr. Glass). They need help. Ideally, they’d like a three-and-D player but anyone who can provide three-point shooting would be of use.

He can get the Cavaliers nine or 10 points a game, and his career shooting is fine if not a bit low for what’s needed. If J.J. Reddick wasn’t as efficient as a pinky in the hole of the titanic defensively, he may have made this spot. Ennis is a career 36% three-point shooter and is someone who can play solid, if uninspiring defense. He would work to add depth.
We’ve championed Garrison Mathews all offseason. Even when there were “better” options, Mathews made sense for the Cavs’ defensive focus. He’s a solid shooter from three-point, a good facilitator, and could really bring a lot to any club.
Not much is known about Deividas Sirvydis, as he’s only played 20 games for the Pistons in ’20-’21. He’s a work in progress offensively (-5.0 OFF RAPTOR) but he’s a solid defender (+1.3 RAPTOR) who shot 35.7% from three-point last season. He’s only 21 years old and if he does well on a limited opportunity, maybe the Cavs can give him a full-time deal. Cleveland should offer him a deal similar to Tacko Fall’s and maybe eye the G-League for him, to see if he can’t work his way into the rotation.
