Early Power Rankings For 2020-21 NBA Season

29. Cleveland Cavaliers

Free agents:  Tristan Thompson, Matthew Dellavedova, Ante Zizic, Andre Drummond (player option)

More than anything, Cleveland needs some sort of identity. Their roster is a lot like New York’s — except it has a legitimately promising young player in Collin Sexton. We’re still waiting to see whether Darius Garland can be a big-time guard. Assuming these two can play with one another, Cleveland likely will aim to improve its wing spot — where fellow rookie Kevin Porter resided. There’s a considerable amount of money tied up in both Kevin Love and Larry Nance Jr. Even further, there’s some reports indicating that the Clippers may have interest in trading for Andre Drummond (who has a $28 million player option). With the No. 5 pick, Cleveland has a multitude of ways it can go.
