The Cavs are hoping to make it back to the playoffs this upcoming season after missing the postseason for the past three years. Last season, they wound up finishing with a record of 22-50 after starting off the year decently well.
Ever since James left the team in the summer of 2018, the organization has been in a heavy rebuild. It was recently reported that the team is hoping to make it back to the postseason no later than the 2022-23 season.
