The Cavs are planning on a 10 man rotation for the 2021-2022 season.
The Cavs made their preseason debut against the Chicago Bulls and got manhandled. It’s just preseason, however, and it’s not like it’s a win or a loss that matters. The Cavs didn’t really focus on a set group of guys but played a lot of players a lot of minutes. The Bulls mostly know who their rotation is going to be, the Cavaliers, however, don’t
The Cavs are allegedly planning on running a 10 man rotation according to Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com, a move that could come with some benefits. It could also be a move with some detriments. The Cavs are an unknown commodity at the moment. It’s unsure what they have in regards to certain talents on the roster.
The team has a lot of guards to sort through, with the trade for Ricky Rubio and the signing of Kevin Pangos, as well as guys like Dylan Windler, guard/forward Denzel Valentine, the team is going to have to sort through where everyone works best at.
Let’s not even get into the Kevin Love of it all. That whole situation seems murkier with each passing day and it seems unlikely he’ll be off the books until his contract runs out.
With guys like Isaac Okoro and Evan Mobley being question marks and unreal expectations being laid on Darius Garland, it’s clear the team has a lot of “what ifs” to work through. So we’re going to look at who should start the season as the starting five and who the five reserves should be.
