Let's be real clear here, no one posting on this board has any idea what the Cavs did, or did not do, when it comes to KPJ. If you want to speculate, that's your right. But that's all this is, 100% speculation.
More importantly, this isn't a college program. You're paid millions of dollars to play basketball at this level. If you need help, you have the means to pay for counseling. But you have to be willing to accept that help, and none of us know KPJ's mindset in that regard either.

All im really saying at this point is Everyone knew he was a hot head from a bad situation with a lot of baggage that they never should have expected to go away otherwise he doesn't drop to 30th.
Maybe the front office thoughts on it were they could "change him" and what ive heard from them over the time he was here was absolutely nothing but positive pr bs indicator that they dont tell us anything until they have cut loose and washed their pilots hands of someone. Thats a business decision not a righteous one. Yeah we dont know everything but we can see a lot without much effort call it 100% speculation doesn't mean it isnt the correct assessment either.
Personally think most people see something like this happen and just think its all on kpj for not stepping up his life. I say its all on the Cavs for not showing any mature level of forgiveness to prove to him not all big $ businesses are really as bad as he thinks. But its obvious he was right and they are since they shipped him out for a bag of dead nuts
Your takes would make more sense if they made any sense.
1) Is KPJ complaining with how he was treated?
2) Is his agent complaining with how he was treated?
3) Are his former teammates complaining with how he was treated?
4) What do the Cavs have to gain by trading him for a 2nd round pick that will never convey?
5) If any of the other 29 GM's in the league thought the Cavs just mismanaged this, why didn't they offer, oh, I don't know ... an actual 2nd round pick?
6) Why would the Cavs bother to share private details of their relationship with a player unless they're forced to, to protect their image?
