Larry Nance Jr. says get used to seeing a bunch of guys getting into the swing of things offensively on a nightly basis for the Cleveland Cavaliers this season.
Nance, acquired along with Jordan Clarkson from the Los Angeles Lakers on Feb. 8 in exchange for Isaiah Thomas, Channing Frye and Cleveland’s first-round draft pick in 2018, is heading toward his first full season with the Cavaliers.
Going by Nance’s assessment, Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue will be running guys in and out of the lineup quite frequently in an effort to surround five-time All-Star Kevin Love with offensive threats.

Nance Jr., 25, the son of Cavs legend Larry Nance, is entering the final year of his rookie contract.
