Cleveland Lineup With LeBron

Despite rumors of Kevin Love headed to Cleveland once LeBron has chosen to land there, the Cavaliers have a young core with many talented supporting players that could help out LeBron for many years to come.

Guards:
Kyrie Irving earned a max deal this offseason, and he'll be James' first premier ball handler. LeBron won't have to create everything himself, and can you imagine the lobs to a flying LeBron?

Shooting guard Dion Waiters is a talented prospect, but with #1 Andrew Wiggins on the team, there could be little room for Waiters unless LeBron plays in a stretch four position with Waiters and Wiggins in the wing. Carrik Felix can bring some defense on a team that is oozing with offense.

Additionally, the Cavs drafted Joe Harris, a sharpshooter that could be the next Kyle Korver.

Forwards:

Wiggins could play at SF as well, but with LeBron now on the team, that seems even more unlikely, especially with the Cavs initially calling Wiggins a SG.

Tristan Thompson pulled of an impressive feat by switching the hand he shoots with last season. The change proved to be effective, and he could be a impressive player down the road. Additionally, last year's 1st pick Anthony Bennett also is a big man that could become even better with LeBron drawing so much attention.
Draft pick Dwight Powell landed in Cleveland after the draft, and could be a promising project player after leaving Stanford.

With a former #1 pick and a #4 pick at this position, I'd be surprised if Love indeed comes to Cleveland.

Centers: Anderson Varejao and Brendan Hayward are the only centers on the team, but Varejao could be packaged with a young SG like Waiters for a center like Roy Hibbert or Al Horford.

Overall, the future is bright for this team.
