Cleveland Cavaliers rumors present an interesting conclusion about the NBA offseason. NBA analyst Shaun Powell, who wrote a long report about the Cavs for, has stated that the team improved just in time for the 2017-18 NBA season. It’s a bold statement to say that the Cavs improved during an offseason where they traded All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving, but that could also come as great news for fans of the team.

No matter what took place during the NBA offseason, the Cavs still have former NBA MVP LeBron James as the core component of the roster.

James is seeking an eighth-straight trip to the NBA Finals, which is another component of these Cleveland Cavaliers rumors that is a big positive for the franchise. James is committed to getting the team another title shot and he has some new players to help him achieve that goal.

Who joins the Cavs 2017-18 NBA roster?

Former NBA MVP and All-Star point guard Derrick Rose signed with the Cavs as a free agent during the offseason. He should see heavy minutes early in the 2017-18 NBA season and could be a huge boost to the team when it comes to maturity on the court. The Cleveland Cavaliers trade with the Boston Celtics added Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, and Ante Zizic. The deal may have netted the Celtics Kyrie Irving, but the Cavs got a lot of added depth.

In addition to signing Derrick Rose as a free agent, the Cavs also signed Jeff Green and Jose Calderon. That’s two more playmakers that will make the offense come a little easier for LeBron James and Kevin Love next year. It also gives the team a group of shooters who could make the Cleveland Cavaliers extremely dangerous from three-point range again.

Can any teams in the Eastern Conference stop the Cavs?

The Golden State Warriors have received the best playoff odds from the people in Las Vegas, predicting that the defending NBA champions should easily make it back to the NBA Finals for a fourth-straight time. The teams predicted to meet them in the postseason are the San Antonio Spurs or Houston Rockets in the Western Conference Finals and then the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals again.

The drama between LeBron James and Kyrie Irving that ended up leading to the Cavs trade with the Celtics is only going to be amplified now that they are on opposing teams. Every game between the Cavs and the Celtics is going to be magnified, even though James and Irving will likely never guard one another. All that’s left to figure out is whether these latest Cleveland Cavaliers rumors are true in that Kevin Love and LeBron James will find more success with new point guards on the roster.
