As most of the NBA fans are already familiar with, the Cleveland Cavaliers have made quite a few roster changes this offseason. We are just five days away from the official start of the 2017/2018 season, and it seems the Cavaliers are done making roster moves. Of course, the biggest move they made this past summer was the Kyrie Irving trade.

The Cavs sent Irving to the Celtics in exchange for Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, and Ante Zizic and completely retooled their roster with that move. But, other than that, the Cavaliers also managed to acquire former league MVP, Derrick Rose, and a three-time NBA champion - Dwyane Wade.

Wade to the starting lineup, J.R. to the bench

The 35-year-old Dwyane Wade joined the Cleveland Cavaliers as a free agent this offseason. Wade was under the contract for one more season with the Chicago Bulls, but after reaching a buyout agreement with the Bulls, he decided to once again team up with LeBron James in Cleveland. The 6-foot-4 shooting guard won two championships playing alongside LeBron James during their days with the Miami Heat, and the Cavs are hoping he can help them bring one more NBA title to Cleveland.

But when Wade joined the Cavaliers, questions were asked about his role in Cleveland. Many were wondering whether or not Wade would be in the starting lineup next season, or if he would come off the bench and lead the Cavaliers' second unit.

Just a couple of days ago, Cavs head coach Tyronn Lue announced that Wade will be the starting shooting guard for the Cavaliers next season. With this being said, it became obvious that J.R. Smith will move to the bench as Wade will take his place in the starting lineup. Smith joined the Cavaliers during the 2014/2015 season, and he has been the starting shooting guard for them ever since.

Smith frustrated with the move but accepts his new role

The 32-year-old Smith has been a crucial part of the Cavs' recent success, and coming off the bench next season wasn't something he expected. In fact, he told's Joe Vardon that he is "absolutely frustrated" with the move but he also said he doesn't plan on making any more drama or trouble.

Smith said he'll accept the decision and play through it as a true professional. "We talked about it. It wasn't the most positive conversation, but we talked about it and we'll get through it together", said J.R. to

The 6-foot-6 Smith played in 41 regular season games for the Cavs last season and averaged 8.6 points and 2.8 rebounds per game. He played an average of 29.0 minutes per game and shot a career-low 35 percent from the field. He won the NBA Sixth Man of the Year award in 2012-13, averaging 18 points off the bench for the New York Knicks. The Cavs are hoping he can have the same success off the bench next season as well.
