Top 5 Lineup Rotations Coach Blatt Could Use

PG – Dion Waiters
SG – Mike Miller
SF – LeBron James
PF – Andrson Varejao
C – Brendan Haywood

Any front-court consisting of the 6 foot-11 Varejao at the 4 is a large lineup, especially with 7-foot tall Brendan Haywood playing alongside him at center. Add in 6’9” LeBron, 6’6” Dion Waiters, and 6’8” Mike Miller in the backcourt, and these 5 present the “largest” lineup in the Cavs lineup arsenal. Waiters stated during the preseason that he wanted to have the ball in his hands, and this lineup may be one of the few times when he will. He will be given the chance to show how effective he can be leading a squad on the court, and the amount of time that these guys get will strongly depend on the production that results from his leadership. Coach Blatt may resort to this lineup when playing rival teams such as the Indiana Pacers, who has true big man Roy Hibbert at Center. Back when LeBron was in Miami, the Heat used a combination of Greg Oden and Chris Bosh to guard Roy Hibbert, so it wouldn’t be surprising if the Cavs simulated that with Brendan Haywood and Anderson Varejao.
