LeBron James coming back to Cleveland and winning the Cavaliers an NBA championship in 2016 against the 73-9 Warriors will forever go down as the greatest moment in team and city history in regards to professional sports, but “The King” is no longer in town and has not been since he left for the bright lights of Los Angeles back in the summer of 2018. 

Since then, the Cleveland Cavaliers have been trying to build their next generation of talent through the draft and they have done a great job of doing so through the years. They drafted Collin Sexton that same summer James left, followed by Darius Garland in 2019, Isaac Okoro in 2020 and now Evan Mobley with the No. 3 pick in the 2021 NBA Draft this year. 

The job GM Koby Altman and this Cavs’ front-office has done scouting and bringing in young talents has been quite impressive and after re-signing Jarrett Allen in the offseason, they now have a young core and starting five of Darius Garland, Collin Sexton, Isaac Okoro, Evan Mobley and Jarrett Allen, all of which are 23-years-old or younger. 

The future is extremely bright for the Cleveland Cavaliers, but with money being a problem right now and some contracts set to be up, this could be a very important year for the Cavs young talent to prove something to management. They finished 22-50 last season, three wins better than the 2019-20 season, and they will be looking to improve once again and possibly inch closer to the play-in tournament area.
