The Cavs have gone 5-5 under Bickerstaff. Even a blind man can tell the players in Cleveland are having more fun playing the game of basketball under Bickerstaff.
The Cavs’ young core is headlined by Collin Sexton, Darius Garland, Kevin Porter Jr., Cedi Osman, Larry Nance Jr. and Dante Exum. The Cavs reportedly believe in Bickerstaff’s ability to develop the young talent on the roster.
The Cavs will likely try and trade All-Star power forward Kevin Love in the summer after failing to move him at the trade deadline. Tristan Thompson becomes an unrestricted free agent after this season ends and it doesn’t make sense for the team or Thompson to strike a new deal.
New center Andre Drummond, meanwhile, has a player option for 2020-21 that he is expected to pick up. He’s only 26 and puts up great numbers, but he doesn’t really impact winning, so Cleveland might try and trade him in the offseason.
