Trade Deadline Additions
Speaking of Rodney Hood and Jordan Clarkson, the Cavaliers look brand new with their updated roster. With the additions of Hood and Clarkson, along with George Hill and Larry Nance Jr., the Cavs instantly got younger and more energetic.
This youth and newfound energy showed in full-force during wins against the Celtics and Thunder, two playoff-bound teams, on national television for the entire county to see.
With the new additions, the team must now focus on regaining chemistry with each other as they continue to practice and learn each other’s traits and habits. This lack of chemistry is what doomed the previous iteration of players before the team swapped six players during the trade deadline.
Also, Cedi Osman will look to log more minutes in the future. Another youthful and energetic player, Osman will be a key player to watch for moving forward as he can use his pure energy to motivate and inspire the team as he has seemingly done since moving to the starting lineup.
