Cavs

Cleveland Cavaliers

The new-look Cavs are rejuvenated nearly one week after overhauling the roster. The Cavs have won back-to-back games since trading six players and adding four new ones. WKSU commentator Terry Pluto says the Cavs instantly improved once they unloaded veterans like Isaiah Thomas and Dwyane Wade.

The Cavs on Thursday completely changed their look with a stunning sequence of deals.

They traded six players:  Iman Shumpert, Channing Frye, Jae Crowder, Isaiah Thomas, Dwyane Wade and Derrick Rose. They also traded two future draft picks in an effort to keep LeBron James and improve their chances of winning a championship this season. The Cavs added Jordan Clarkson, Larry Nance, Jr., Rodney Hood and George Hill.

WKSU commentator Terry Pluto said the revamp was prompted by two major factors.

The Cavs will likely be making some changes ahead of tomorrow’s NBA trade deadline. The struggling team posted another embarrassing loss last night, 116-98 to the Orlando Magic. They also blew a 21-point lead in the game. But, the problems appear to go beyond what’s happening on the court. WKSU commentator Terry Pluto says most of the drama surrounding the Cavs centers on the relationship between its owner and its biggest star.

The Cavs’ Christmas Day loss to the Warriors shows they still have some work to do to compete against the defending champs. The Cavs lost 99-92 in the first meeting between the two teams since the NBA Finals.

WKSU commentator Terry Pluto says there were pluses and minuses from Monday’s game for the Cavs.
