    Are the Cavaliers Building a Potential Dynasty?

    It all makes sense as to why LeBron wants to "run home". His Cavs may very well be in the process of building a potential dynasty.

    With the speculated trade of Wiggins/Bennett and 1st for Love, the Cavaliers still have the non-guaranteed contracts they traded for with Utah to use as potential assets, and two 1sts in next years draft. I can easily see them trading those non-guaranteed contracts capable center this year.

    In 2015, Brendan Haywood I believe has his contract jump from 2 million this season a 10.5 million non-guaranteed contract next season which would allow the Cavaliers to bring back a player with a 12 million+ salary for 2015 which could be the potential addition of another all-star type player and give them a legit Big 4, and if Waitors develops a Big 5 lol.

    With multiple first rounders next season (if the Cavs keep them), if the Cavs draft properly, they will also be able to keep a steady stable of youth on the team as well, and their core Big 3 of Love (25), Irving (22), and LeBron (29) are currently all under 30. Waitors the 4th best player on the team is 22 and going to be a RFA allowing the Cavs to match any offer that comes his way keeping him locked up long-term as well.

    Of course the Cavs are going to get every old FA (Mike Miller, Marion, Ray Allen) type players at vet min-deals as well.

    Cavs have all the pieces to keep a winning team for many years to come which may be the mistake the HEAT made in trading away all our picks and assets and thus aging very quickly and not having any youth on the team.

    "9. The Cavs have a few options to land another big man, either via trade or with a minimum-level salary. One is a younger player, the other has "been around the block," according to a FOX Sports Ohio source."

    "12. Finally, the Cavs feel center Brendan Haywood may have a little something left in the tank. At 7-feet tall, Haywood has the size the Cavs want. His expiring contract next year is also viewed as a huge asset. Haywood's deal enables the Cavs to take back $15 million in a trade and teams have asked about him. Haywood, 34, missed all of last season in Charlotte with a foot injury."

    I mean they are trying, like most teams. They have a very solid group with young talent mixed in with vets. They need a center (defensive) as mentioned and at some point might want a defensive minded wing who can shoot (likely have ray/marion combo for this season). Their young players need to develop and they need to have good team defense (meaning defensive improvements from kyrie, love, waiters plays good on that end etc.)

    It is way too early to know if they can even win one or two titles, let alone dynasty talk. They do have questions to be answered but it isn't impossible if everything goes right.

    Lets see if Kyrie can play off ball.

    Personally, I think their the best in the East but the lackluster defense (only LeBron and Varejou are relevant defenders on their entire roster, not just starting lineup) will hold them back quite a bit from beating a West team in the Finals.

    They need to trade for some 3 & D guys. Miller and Allen only bring 3 but no D. The Cavs need the D.

    Cavs have two years to win before Lebron bolts to a team with a better roster, or they're going to be paying him into his twilight years to keep him.
