Vote: Which Cavs newcomer will shine brightest?

Jae Crowder is expected to offer the Cavaliers some extra 3-pointers and strong defense.

It’s been a crazy summer of additions, one major subtraction, and a whole lot of rumors (what else is new?) involving the Cleveland Cavaliers.

And when they head to training camp later this month, things will look quite different. Not worse — just different. LeBron James is still in town. So is Kevin Love. Same goes for J.R. Smith, Tristan Thompson and several others.

But Kyrie Irving is gone, having finally been officially shipped to the Boston Celtics. In return, the Cavs received Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizc and some draft picks.

The former Celtics, of course, are just a few of the Cavs’ offseason additions.

All of them (so far) are listed below. The Cavs hope each can make an impact. But which newcomer do you think will make the biggest?

Let us know with a vote in our latest poll, and if you’re feeling especially motivated, a thought in the comment section.

    I’m torn. With Thomas potentially out until after the all-star break, I can’t say him. We don’t really know what we’re getting with Osman and Zizic as far as NBA production. Calderon is Calderon. I like the Jeff Green addition, but I struggle to figure out where he’d have a great impact, especially in crunch time. Obviously spelling LeBron and Love will be good. I’m left with Rose and Crowder. Rose, a new starting PG, can score a bunch and a really good driver. He’ll be huge for them with IT out. But, I say Crowder. Versatile, able to guard at least 3 positions at an elite level, which the Cavs desperately need, is able to start and put up points. I like Rose and Green especially, but Crowder’s impact on both sides of the ball make him my choice. Sorry for the novel haha.

    • Haha love it Matt. I don’t mind novels. Especially since those were all good and fair points. I voted Crowder too. Now all we need to do is get that Facebook chat set up so we can talk more!

  2. The Brooklyn Pick is the most important now. The party is over with a miserably failed summer. Very sorry for the chicken little sky is falling attitude, but unless some kind of sudden team work edition of LeBron James comes out, the major pieces are all gone by the trading deadline. They did nothing to get better. No one can guard KD or come close to it.

    So therefore, the Brooklyn pick is the next thing we have to look forward to. Maybe we’ll get another good player.
