First, let me say I wish Byron Scott well wherever he goes. I didn't dislike the man, he was a very good player and he's a good Coach. I just didn't think he was the right Coach for the Cavs.
Now to the post. I think Dion Waiters needs to be the 6th man instead of a starter. I don't know why some Cavs fans see the 6th man as a step down. I mentioned this before just as a comment on a post and it was like making Dion Waiters 6th man would be like sending him to North Korea.
Irving and Waiters games are too similar. Irving is a scoring PG and needs either a defensive minded SG or more of a perimeter minded SG to start with him. You bring Waiters in as the 6th man and he could drive the second unit and finish the game with Kyrie.
Let's look around the league at how this works for other teams.
I think you see how similar styles don't work as starters withe the Bucks and Ellis and Jennings.
There's nothing wrong with this:
I think Waiters is a good starter but he would be a great 6th man. Especially if he stops shooting jumpers at the end of games. Waiters Drawing foul percentage is 10.5% during a game and it drops to 1.7% during clutch minutes. He needs to be attacking the rim as a 81% free throw shooter during clutch minutes.
