NBA Offseason Team Needs:


1. Everything: From LeBron’s future to Kevin Love opting out and becoming a free agent, to figuring out what to do with restricted free agents Tristan Thompson, Iman Shumpert, and Matthew Dellavedova; it is going to be an awfully interesting and active offseason in Cleveland. Two things are certainties: Kyrie Irving returning to run the point and having two solid big men options with Timofey Mozgov and Anderson Varejao (assuming the latter can stay healthy.) Everything else is up in the air.
