Stepien Rules Writer Nick Mancini checks in with his third of five questions as Cavs training camp continues...3. What will Cavs find at small forward from Alonzo Gee, C.J. Miles and Omri Casspi?With the season approaching, there are questions about the Cavs starting lineup. No, it is not Dion Waiters; he is going to be the starting two guard. But when it comes to the small forward position, it becomes a little muddy. Alonzo Gee, C.J. Miles and to a lesser extent Omri Casspi are all vying for the starting spot. I believe this is a two-horse race between Miles and Gee. These last two games will be more of what we can expect to see in the regular season with regards to the starting lineup. Miles has started with Gee and Casspi coming off the bench and that's how I think it should be. Gee proved his worth last season for the Cavs, but I love him in the 6th man role for this team. First guy off the bench, he can spell either Miles or Waiters. He provides that athleticism that is nee...

Tristan Thompson looks ready for increased role with Cavs

Tristan Thompson’s first season in the NBA was overshadowed by Kyrie Irving. That is what happens when you play with the rookie of the year, but as a fellow top-5 pick, Thompson is obviously expected to contribute as well. Most rookie seasons are full of inconsistency and Thompson was no exception, but it is pretty clear the Cleveland Cavaliers are willing to deal with the...

Cavs' off night to be expected

OK, so the Cavaliers have issues. Anyone who suspected such might not be the case was living in an NBA fantasyland. In Wednesdays 113-99 loss to Philadelphia, the Cavs revealed what we should have known all along: Theyre extremely young, lost one of their top two leading scorers from last season, and are still learning the finer points of the pro game. That last point was especially...

Cavs Report: Preseason taking shape

Five observations on the Cavaliers: 1. Tyler Zeller is coming along nicely. While Cavs fans have been committed to the Dion Waiters Watch (and rightfully so), the other rookie is proving to be quite a find. That would be none other than Tyler Zeller, the backup center. Zeller has had his rookie moments (see, the baseline spin dunk by Chicago's Taj Gibson), and they are sure...
