Breaking News for you on this fine Monday Morning- Michigan Basketball head coach John Beilein has agreed to a five-year deal to become the head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers. To Michigan fans, this is an utter shock, and has people up north thinking, “Can I just hit the reset button on today?”
However, to the Cavs, the reaction is mixed. Allow me, a Michigan Fan, to break this down for you.
As February’s NBA trade deadline nears, fans are already speculating about where players will end up. With half the season gone, these potential moves could make or break a team’s chance in the NBA playoffs or provide salary cap relief for future flexibility. That said, I’ve compiled a small list of players who could be on the move soon.
After a couple months of incessant trade rumors surrounding Cleveland Cavaliers role players such as George Hill, J.R. Smith and Kyle Korver, they have finally made their first move, sending Korver to the Utah Jazz for what will be his second stint with the franchise. In return, Cleveland will reportedly be receiving eighth-year wing Alec Burks and a pair of second-round draft picks.
The Cleveland Cavaliers like to play the blame game and the latest scapegoat is Tyronn Lue. The now former head coach of the Cavs has done a lot for this organization and it really is not fair to point the finger at him for this bad start, since there is not much anybody could do with this roster and situation.
The defending Eastern Conference champions the Cleveland Cavaliers are in store for a different season after four straight trips to the NBA Finals. Unless you have been in outer space since July, the best player on the planet no longer resides in “The Land” during the NBA season. So change is happening one way or another for the Cavs this season but not everyone left with LeBron to LA.
Only four years ago, the Minnesota Timberwolves looked as though they would become a newfound story of success as opposed to the regular story of sorrow. After failing to make the playoffs with Kevin Love at the helm, the Wolves traded for draft darling Andrew Wiggins to begin ushering in a new era of Minnesota basketball. Garnering comparisons to Tracy McGrady, the Minnesota faithful were excited for their young star to lead their once-successful franchise for years to come.
