    Are the cavaliers collecting point guards? Hill, clarkson,calderone, perrantes, and now thornton along with several shooting guards. The team needs tall athletic versatile players and a legitimate center, not another small guy who, I hope,lue plans not to use thornton, the fourth string point guard yet maybe used out of position at shooting guard to once again have a small lineup lue is notorious for using. They should have acquired derrick williams and look to add a center, robin lopez or tyson chandler to start in place of thompson and then they are in position to attain a world title again.
