With the race to build super teams at an all-time high following the successful championship run of the Golden State Warriors after adding Kevin Durant, the question on the minds of many NBA fans is: What are the Cleveland Cavaliers doing to bolster their roster to hopefully compete with the Golden State Warriors next season?

Lebron James not recruiting?

With the Houston Rockets recently acquiring Chris Paul to pair with James Harden, and with the Oklahoma City Thunder successfully retaining the services of Paul George for what is essentially a one-year rental, it may come as a surprise to some to find out that LeBron James is not actively recruiting talent to join him in Cleveland next season.

After letting General Manager David Griffin go, in theory, one would think that the franchise would look to its star player to help in the interim while they get their collective feet set in that department, however, that does not appear to be the case -- at least for the time being.

Are the Cleveland Cavaliers complacent?

While the Cleveland Cavaliers did get beat handily in the 2017 NBA Finals, at the moment, they are seemingly guaranteed to make another deep run in the East, and it wouldn't be a surprise to see them coast to the NBA Finals again next year. That said, however, they may not want to hang their hats on that just yet. Even if they are able to coast in the Eastern Conference, teams like the Boston Celtics are beginning to close the gap, and with LeBron James getting older, it would be fair to say that the championship window for the Cleveland Cavaliers is beginning to close.

Even so, the elephant in the room is still the Golden State Warriors. The Golden State Warriors are doing everything they can to retain the players that they have in order to establish a dynasty, and, with Kevin Durant taking a pay cut in order to sign vital pieces, the fact remains that no matter what the Cleveland Cavaliers do, the Golden State Warriors will be waiting in the wings in the near future, and possibly for many years to come.

While Cleveland did reach an agreement with veteran point guard Jose Calderon, he is essentially a non-factor when it comes to competing with the Warriors next season. LeBron is not the type of player to rest on his laurels, but if the King wants another jewel for his crown, the Cavaliers will definitely need to make some changes if they want to compete for a title again next season.
