Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue has some tough decisions to make.
No, not whether he wants to watch Isaiah Thomas or Derrick Rose taking their turn getting destroyed by opposing guards, but rather a more pleasant problem.
Thanks to an eventful trade deadline, he’s got plenty of shiny new toys to play with. Many of these toys can even play multiple positions, shoot and defend.
Building the perfect rotation will take time, especially when there are 11 players worthy of minutes when Kevin Love returns from a broken left hand in late March or early April. Lue has preferred to keep his rotations around 10 guys, a number that could shrink even more come playoff time.
Of the four new players acquired at the deadline (George Hill, Rodney Hood, Jordan Clarkson, Larry Nance Jr.), only Hill began his Cavaliers’ career as a starter. If Lue makes the right decisions, this will soon change.
It won’t be easy, and some feelings may get hurt along the way, but the Cavaliers’ best starting lineup and rotation should look as follows.
