  1. Cavaliers Thread: Embrace The Mediocrity

    Yeah I agree with your assesment completely. I think Hunter is the perfect fit for John Beilein's style of play. He is a little slow on the shot, but that can improve at this level. We were the worst defensive team in the NBA last year, what makes Kawaii great is his defensive ability, I don't want another volume shooter, I've seen enough of those...

    Hopefully its not HIS defense...
  3. Cavaliers Thread: Embrace The Mediocrity

    Here's what I have seen of him at Michigan...(I lived there for 5 years so I watched him a good amount). - He plays a modern NBA style offensive game at the moment. That team lived by the 3 and died by the 3. I don't love it but that's how the NBA's going if you ahve shooters that can shoot. - He was very good at developing players. I don't know anyone that was worse going into that program than they were leaving, and I'm a Kentucky Fan, I love Cal but hes not a developer, it can happen. - He was a BAD defensive coach. He learned later to bring in an assistant to coach the D and it helped him tremendously. I hope he can do that in the pros I don't hate the hire. He can be a good coach in the NBA. It will be interesting to see what happens.

    so cavs hire John Beilein, Didn't see this coming. Was he on the list of interviewees?
  5. the worst part of that is were didn't want to take it...
  6. Hypothetical: Add 1 AFC North Player

    Never happen because he wouldn't want to? Because that's more the position he is fit for...
  7. Hypothetical: Add 1 AFC North Player

    Maybe Marian Humphry? We can never have enough good corners, and he would be the #2 on our team. Maybe Ronnie Stanley? or Alejandro Villanueva? Move Robinson over to RT and get a REALLY good LT in for a long time... I love Geno Atkins but is he too old to pick up at this point? This is an awesome question because I'm not sure I know the answer to it. I really had to think and its not obvious! That being said this is an AWESOME answer and this may help us more than any other player.... Nice question and response....
  8. Great article on Myles Garrett

    I also don't know how many times he was actually off sides. He got such a great jump he would get flagged for it a lot, but when watching in slow motion he was jumping after the ball started being snapped...
  9. Who is YOUR guy for 2020 Draft

    I'll be honest, I don't know nearly enough about next years draft class. I do know this however, I love the idea of drafting the best players available in later rounds, guys like Caleb Brantley, Mo Hurst, Mack Wilson, who fall and can be had for great value. I think with the first couple rounds we need to start looking to replace the more expensive players on our roster. Olivier Vernon, Sheldon Richardson, TJ Carrie. I don't know if we are going to re-sign Damerious Randall or not so we may need a FS (though I hear Dorsey thinks Redwine is a FS, I don't know if he can start in this league). From now on out the draft is about depth and future replacements, not about immediate needs, which couldn't put us in a better position...
  10. I'm not saying BItonio is in Jeopardy this year, maybe not even next, but here is a VERY large part of the equation that you aren't taking into account. Bitonio was drafted by Ray Farmer and was re-signed by Sashi Brown. I know its ridiculous to assume less value to John Dorsey, but he did not draft him, he did not develop the contract. I wouldn't be surprised if Joel Bitonio gets traded for no other reason than he is not Dorseys guy.... That being said I'm not advocating for him to leave, I'm just saying Guard is not a position that is difficult to replace and is a place we can save a good amount of money...
  11. I definitely don't believe he will be playing his contract out here. It all depends on how much money we have and who we are replacing. Unfortunately Bitonio, though very good, is in a very replaceable position, and not one worth spending a ton of money on... Next year we could save 9 million dollars by letting him go, the year after we could save 10 million, both years seeing no cap ramifications. If by that time, say Drew Forbes, shows that he can be an adequate replacement, I could of course see us letting Bitonio walk... The value is going to be used at WR, QB, CB and Pass Rushers. We are going to pay to keep Baker Mayfield, Denzel Ward, Myles Garrett, maybe Larry Ogunjobi if he progresses. If some of that money eats into our salary cap enough that we need to release players like Joel Bitonio, Christian Kirksey, Demarious Randall, then unfortunately it is what it is. That is what we are using draft picks for now, to replace guys who will become too expensive to keep...
  12. Duke Johnson trade imminent. *updates to come*

    Are you sure? I normally just accept your words as truth Mind, however, everything I'm seeing from OTC and Spotrac is showing me that Gerald McCoy's guaranteed portion of his deal is 100% paid and he has nothing guaranteed left on his contract. Even so, similar to OBJ, and Oliver Vernon, if they trade him, the take the dead cap hit and that's the bonus of the trade for us, that the money is not guaranteed with us. From what I am seeing if we were to trade for McCoy, he would cost 13M, 12.5M and 13M in 2019, 2020, and 2021 respectively, however that would carry 0 guarantees with it and we would be able to release him at any time. However, if he were to get cut by Tampa Bay (which it seems like they can do without cap ramifications), and signs with us, we would have to worry about how team friendly the contract is going forward. I think the best move for us would be to trade for him, so we get the option of how long we want to pay the current contract, and have negotiating ability with him if we want to renegotiate his contract.
  13. Duke Johnson trade imminent. *updates to come*

    I don't even know that the bucs would need to pay a portion of his salary. 13 million a year isn't an incredible amount. If we want him more than a year we can re-structure his contract. If we don't we can cut him at any time and now owe a penny. I don't know why people are worried about the financial side of this...
  14. 2019 NFL draft day 3; Dorseys delight.

    Kirksey and his 10 million dollar cap hit and 2.5 million dollar dead money is almost certainly gone next year...
  15. Who the Browns are showing interest in.

    Kareem Hunt will be an restricted free agent. He hasn't played long enough to be unrestricted for what its worth...
