In an Akron Beacon-Journal article titled “With Andrew Bogut on way after clearing waivers, are Cavs better than championship team?”, Marla Ridenour detailed the list of talent Cleveland have acquired since the start of the season.
“…the real question for the Cavaliers is whether the depth added since Jan. 7 will make them a better team than the 2016 NBA champions,” Ridenour wrote.
“The roster restocking started with the trade with the Atlanta Hawks for one of the league’s premier 3-point specialists, Kyle Korver. Since then, the Cavs have also brought in Derrick Williams, the second overall pick in 2011 who is with his fifth team in six years, and former Dallas Maverick backup point guard Deron Williams, who played with LeBron James on two Olympic teams.
“Now on the way … is rim protector Bogut. The ex-Golden State Warrior faced the Cavs in the NBA Finals the previous two seasons and won the title in 2015.”
But Micah Adams, writing for ESPN.com, warned that Bogut was not a risk-free acquisition for the Cavs.
“As much value as Bogut adds defensively, his offensive game has been a struggle,” Adams wrote.
“He’s currently the only player in the NBA who has played at least 500 minutes and has more turnovers than made field goals. And he has done it while shooting just 47 percent, not good for any big, let alone one that has taken all but four of his shots inside the paint.”
