We just need a GM with a clue how to build a team that Dan will let build the team. Selling off young assets could be the right move, it all depends whether the GM and his staff are coming up with accurate projections for performance, fit, and market value. Danny Ainge is an example of a GM who's built teams multiple ways with barely a drop-off over the past 16 years. For a truly smart GM there shouldn't be one formula, one path (please spare us Hinkie).
nah Ainge anywhere besides Boston has nowhere near the same outcome besides he is a snake and he got what he deserved when the Irving trade came back and bit his arse.
I just think all gms are a dime a dozen and besides getting one cheap that hits in the lottery and then has assets to use as bait there is no chance any gm is going to do better than Altman is doing with the current roster,owner situation , cap space etc.
the last thing the Cavs need to do is get a new gm what they do need to do is draft the damn best player that is available and if its a guard shop Garland.
We could use the kind of snake that can turn broken Isaiah Thomas in to Irving, and then lose Irving and Horford suffer a major injury to Haywood and then go out and sign Kemba Walker ... and actually improve the team in the whole process.
I'm always glad to see Boston coming up short, no doubt, but I'd still rather watch a competitive team that's constantly making clever moves to improve then watch a team collect lottery tickets.
the only way to build a contender in a small market is from the bottom up in a slow grind. You wont be seeing any Lebron James walking through that door anytime soon, and the lottery luck being against the Cavs makes the temptation to wheel and deal more reasonable but moving young players that have not been given enough time to develop wont get you much in return so you then have to give up draft assets or more proven players and the returns are only going to be parallel not upgrades etc.
This org is fine and you just sound impatient . I personally would shop DG if he hasn't shown better chops despite getting in shape but I never liked the selection due to the injury being the type that lingers and comes back later etc.
My point about Ainge is he looked real smart sending us a beat down Isaiah role players and a lottery pick for Kyrie, but Kyrie leaving Boston them winning more without him and Sexton becoming a legit NBA starter is proof Altman won the trade
