Here is the depth chart:

PG: Sexton, Garland, Exum
SG: KPJ, Cedi, (Windler, Exum)
SF: Avdija, Windler, (Cedi, Nance, KPJ, McKinnie)
PF: Love, Nance, (Avdija, TT, Wade, Bell)
C : Drummond, TT, (Nance, Love)

Not much of a depth, though.

I think Bell is exclusively a 5. Wade has backup 5 size.

You know who else was shooting a thousand jumpers a day in years gone past? Tristan Thompson.

Can we be spared the standard off season kool aid drivel please?

Take away from the article. @Sir'Dom Pointer has been with the team during the bubble.

What else was Tristan Thompson doing? He was keeping up with the Kardashians that's what. I'm sure they were an awesome addition to his player development.

Sorry, I just get tired of hearing the standard off season cliches. He added 15 lbs of muscle. Thousand jump shots every day. It's been the same shit for every player for years and almost always is nothing more than PR hype

Tristan Thompson shot 39% from 3 this year. He can shoot a wide open 3. I don't want him taking them off the dribble.

Tristan is strong as hell and has guarded Bam, Jokic, Aldridge, and other elite centers effectively for years.

Collin, Larry, and Ceid all went from nonshooters to above average.

Hat to break it to you, but the staff lately has made real strides in development. Shooting is one area we should not complain about as Cavs fans.

Please read my comments before you go putting words in my mouth I've never posted.

I'll ask you directly. Do you think the Cavs have good shooting coaches? Are you unhappy with the progress of the young guys so far?

Was not the topic of my conversation. So either you're not taking the time to read what I posted and making assumptions based on skimming my already short posts, or you're just flat out being an argumentative asshat over an imagined offense. Either way. Fuck yourself.

You said you are tired of the cliches and that I put words in your mouth. So I then asked you a direct question about your thoughts which you are under no obligation to answer. I've never been anything but nice to you. I wasn't offended and I don't mind contrarian takes. I am still not offended, I just don't get your point of view.

Yeah, i discount those "looks great in the gym" reports completely. They could be spin for potential trades, or just be a guy who routinely hits shots in the gym but not in games.

Not that we have any reason to believe that about Garland in particular....
