The Cavaliers believe that recent acquisition Taurean Prince will given them another capable 3-and-D wing, along with Isaac Okoro and Cedi Osman.
While Cleveland has a surplus of big men, the team was a bit lacking on the wings before getting involved in the four-team trade centered around James Harden. GM Koby Altman was able to add Prince and Jarrett Allen to the roster, and in the case of the former the Cavaliers believe that he can help at both the three and the four. "He’s 6-7, he’s tough, can switch multiple positions," Altman said of Prince. "But I think he’s gonna be able to be multidimensional for us on the defensive end and fit right in as a spacer on the offensive end." Prince's numbers in Brooklyn this season weren't great, but the move to Cleveland gives him a better shot at becoming a relevant fantasy option. 10:58 am (EST)
