Fantasy Basketball Team Preview: Cleveland Cavaliers (9/4/10)

Cleveland is a very difficult fantasy writeup this season.  LeBron James is no longer running the show, so now a few second tier fantasy guys are going to have to step up.  The Cavs have a new head coach in Byron Scott and I believe their offensive philosophy is going to evolve into a more uptempo game, which should produce a few fantasy plays.  Mo Williams and Antawn Jamison are the obvious fantasy values, but J.J. Hickson and Ramon Sessions could be worthy of some fantasy love too.  Many questions will be answered in camp, so keep an eye on Cleveland and how they rebuild after losing the focal point of their past success.

Projected Depth Chart:
PG – Mo Williams, Ramon Sessions
SG – Anthony Parker, Daniel Gibson
SF – Jamario Moon, Danny Green, Joey Graham
PF – Antawn Jamison, J.J. Hickson, Leon Powe
C – Anderson Varejao, Ryan Hollins
Head Coach – Byron Scott
