Cleveland Cavaliers fans are in heaven today with the news the LeBron James is coming home. There were plenty of reasons behind the King’s homecoming party, but the question now becomes: Can LeBron finally deliver a championship to his hometown? The Eastern Conference is a barren wasteland, but adding LeBron to a young Cavaliers roster doesn’t necessarily make them title favorites overnight.

The Indiana Pacers are one Lance Stephenson signing away from being Eastern favorites. The Chicago Bulls are one Carmelo Anthony signing away from being title contenders. And though a nucleus of LeBron, Kyrie Irving and Andrew Wiggins sounds great on paper, the Cavs still have a lot of work to do this offseason to put themselves in a better position to win Cleveland’s first championship.

So who should LeBron James be recruiting to join him in Cleveland? Here are the Cavaliers’ top five options, either via free agency or trade.

    As a Cleveland fan, I’m not a huge fan of giving up Wiggins. Though if we can sign Kevin Love to a long term deal, I say pull the trigger on it and trade him.

      Do Wiggins and James on the same team REALLY make sense? Toss in that Wiggins had a so-so college year and many projection systems don’t reflect well on him….

      Trading a 19 year old who has never played a minute in the NBA for a top 3 power forward is a good move unless you think you’re better off keeping the rookie deal and building a balanced roster.

  • Real M-Fing talk !!!

    I disagree with Ray Allen and Mo Williams big time… But Mike Miller and Horford would be a great fit !
    I would rather go after Gasol and Ariza and wait out the Wolves, they are not dealing from a position of power THEY WILL LOSE LOVE next year…. period , and everyone knows it, so why give up any young talent especially one with the gifts of Wiggins, don’t over look his defensive side, this guy is a Lebron jr athletic wise.. The Cavs need to calm down, its just one year, you are telling me guys like Gasol and Horford could not be a stop gap until then?

    I’d hate to see Wiggins blow up in our faces if he is traded. It might be in there best interest to hold onto him and wait that year or maybe till trade deadline when they realize they might get nothing in return for Love.
