Nuthin concrete, but since it's basically the offseason - I figured I'd post

If we do that give them Nic Batum also.  Lol Lebron like the vets, but I doubt they'd take on that much salary.  I think Lebron is gonna bolt though after the finals. As much as it pains me  I'd actually have to pull for Cleveland if they get back to the Finals, cause I'd love to see Kemba get a ring.

If this is done I hope we ask for another asset like Hood or even George Hill with 8.  This puts a ton of pressure on the draft...really gotta hit this time.  I hate to see Kemba go but if we can't resign him this is a good move.

The only way Cleveland does this is if they know Lebron is coming back. Otherwise, it's a dumb move for them.

Depends

The #8 spot isnt guaranteed to be a star.

 

2017 Markkanen was a stud

But let look at some others

2016- Marquese Chriss

2015- Stanley Johnson

2014- Nik Strauskas

2013- Kentavious Cauldwell Pope

2012- Terrence Ross

2011- Brandon Knight

2010- Al Foruq Aminu

2009- Jordan Hill

2008- Joe Alexander

2007- Brandon Wright

 

 

Do you take a risk at that or grab a Proven All-Star PG?

Adding a All-Star PG may help persuade Lebron into staying in Cleveland.  Without it, might not.  Remember he likes the more proven guys. Remember Kevin Love trade for the #1 pick Wiggins plus some.

And say he does leave.  You still have a All-Star PG that can still win some games with those pieces.  If not, its going to be another "process".

If its something, a piece, that would make Lebron happen and persuade to stay.  Theyll trade

 

Remember, this is the same team and owner that traded the #1 pick, the #1 pick from the previous year, and a solid role player for Kevin Love to make Lebron happy

Who can walk away at the end of the season. So they could end up trading a lottery pick for nothing.

That isn't a rumor. It's the Cavs' fan site posting wishes based on one question from a Rick Bonnell story about speculation. Doesn't mean it won't happen but take it for what it is: not really much of anything.

This is pure speculation. FA starts after the draft. Why the fug would the Cavs trade for Kemba if they don't know if LeBron is re-signing or not?

Even if it's Kemba for 8 straight up. We keep 11 and all our bad contracts, I'd still consider it. You can package 8 and 11 to move up to 5 or 6.

1st of all we would need the Cavs to win a game or 2 to give Lebron hope they are only a player (Kemba) away from competing for the title. 

That said I would do it because I am in the camp of tear it down and start over but the problem is Cleveland doesn't have the cap space or players for them to take any of our bad contracts. I tried to find a way to take one of Batum, MKG, Cody, Marvin and it doesn't really make sense. 

Kemba + Julyan Stone for #8 Clarkson & Nance. That is the best package we could get which I don't like at all. 

Other potential Kemba trades; 

With 76ers Kemba for Fultz + #10 (Would 76ers want to give up on Fultz?)

With Knicks Kemba for Ntilikina + Lance Thomas + #9  (Heavy price tag for NY who are somewhat rebuilding)

With Suns Kemba + Marvin for #16 Chriss or Bender + #1 Bucks pick next year fillers

Why are a lot of fans ok with giving up the best player we have ever had? 

Don't think any of us are ok with doing it. We just feel like the ultimate goal of any organization is to compete for the championship and we can't do that without a complete rebuild. We have a bunch of horrible contracts and our best player is about to get paid. We will treadmill the 7-11 seed if we resign Kemba. We trade him our rebuild can get a jump start with additional picks and we will probably suck next year getting a higher pick.

Fair enough, but I feel like an 8th pick without a player is getting fleeced.
