PG13 and Butler left the table of availability early. There were no other moves to make and it's best for them to sit back and run back the squad they have. They still have the trade deadline in February as well. They will have similar competition from this past season, next season, so why make big moves now?

They still have the same bench with no new additions and brought back a guy who came up small in the Finals.

You can only make moves with what's available. I would imagine that once Cleveland started seeing players go out West, they opted to let them beat each other up on the way to the Finals '18. I don't blame them. Cleveland likely has one last hoorah, and that's if Lebron doesn't decide to re up after next season.

So basically the Cavs are hoping Golden State doesn't make the finals or they make it with key players injured?

Bravo for the Celtics trying to make the east at least a little interesting. Heyward, Tatum, Thomas, Smart, Bradley, Horford, Brown, Rozier, etc - should be able to make it a fight now.

I didnt like when Cleveland acquired him in the first place, and now re-upping him for 3 years?!

That's what I'm trying to figure out since he missed a wide open three pointer to seal game 3 for the Cavs.

Gordon Hayward to the Celtics reuniting with Stevens.

He'll give them some scoring and toughness inside and outside.

What do you guys want for 7M a year???

He needs shadowed at all times; He shots the 3 ball well. He's got an important role in the MBA nowadays and he can do it well.

Granted, He's not a great defender but can play smart basketball on that end.

Otto Porter just got a max deal and Paul Milsap is making 30 a year
