Cavs surprise with Thompson

Posted in Fantasy Basketball by DoubleDribble 183 days ago (
The Sports Xchange reports the Cavaliers didn't address any of their problem areas -- center, small forward or shooting guard. But they seem to be cornering the market on 6-9 forwards. If there's one position the Cavaliers have talent, it's power forward. So, naturally, they selected a power forward in the NBA Draft on Thursday. The Cavs' selection at No. 4 was a bit surprising, to say the least, as they drafted Texas power forward Tristan Thompson. The 6-foot-8, 225-pounder will be added to a stable of talented power forwards already on the roster that includes Samardo Samuels, Antawn Jamison, Anderson Varejao and starter J.J. Hickson. Varejao was the starting center last year before suffering a season-ending injury to his ankle. It's going to be next to impossible to find regular minutes for all four players even though Varejao might be asked to play center once again. The addition of Thompson has fueled speculation that a trade could be in the works, perhaps with Hickson.
