Sources also said the Cavs’ needs are a guard who can shoot and handle the ball, and, secondly, a rim protector. Separately, coach Tyronn Lue and players have said the team’s struggles this month can be pinned on a lack of continuity from the return of players like Isaiah Thomas and Tristan Thompson from injuries.
Joe Vardon: Everyone wants to know if the Cavs would trade the pick, and there’s been much speculation that Cleveland would not, in fact, make a deal involving it.

The Cavs need a player who can dribble and shoot (sounds simple, but I’m serious), and after that, maybe a rim protector.
