The Cleveland Cavaliers have been uncharacteristically playing terrible basketball as of late, winning just seven of their last 20 games. As a team that has featured in the last three NBA Finals, it is definitely a surprise that they are struggling so badly throughout the middle of the season, especially with all their players in uniform, except recently injured Kevin Love.

The Cavaliers currently sit in third place in the Eastern Conference, with a record of 30-21. But with their recent play, they risk sitting in the bad situation that they faced earlier in the season, and that is sitting below .500.

Although they will still be in the playoff race, it will be an embarrassing position for a LeBron James led team to be in heading into the postseason. So the Cavaliers will look to improve their performances as the season progresses and they plan to make some changes, but it won’t involve firing their Head Coach as assured by a Cavs official.

‘Not firing our head coach’

Despite the abysmal performances and blowout losses that have showered over Cleveland in 2018, Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue’s is safe, as told by an unnamed Cavaliers team official.

“We are not firing our head coach.”

As the NBA trade deadline approaches, the Cavaliers have been involved in many trade rumors involving star point guards and big men around the league.

But they have yet to pull the trigger on any, even with huge names including DeAndre Jordan, George Hill, Andre Drummond and Lou Williams being mentioned. And with the NBA trade deadline approaching (February 8th) and being just days away, the Cavaliers are feeling more and more pressure to make a season-changing move as they set up their roster heading into the postseason once again.

But maybe looking for a trade isn’t the right move right now for Cleveland, maybe they need to focus on who they have got, and find themselves first.

No trade?

Everyone is anticipating a Cleveland Cavaliers trade before the deadline, that may involve their star players including Isaiah Thomas, Kevin Love, Tristan Thompson and J.R.

Smith. But looking at their roster on paper, it doesn’t look like they need to change anything. They have superstar names including LeBron James, Kevin Love, Isaiah Thomas, Dwyane Wade and Derrick Rose with talented role players like Jae Crowder, Jeff Green, Iman Shumpert and J.R. Smith. On paper, this is one of the best teams in the NBA, easily up there with teams like the Warriors and the Rockets, and this is why they had such high hopes before the season started, even with the loss of Kyrie Irving.

So maybe the Cavaliers should try a little soul searching, and try to gain more chemistry as a team rather than looking for a trade.
