Today at Cleveland Cavaliers media day, Cavs coach David Blatt played up the Cavs depth and said this team is deeper and has more possibilities than a year ago. Via Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today:

Blatt also says he wants to utilize that depth - partly due to players coming back from injury - and keep LeBron fresh for Cleveland's seemingly inevitable postseason run.

This is an encouraging set of statements from Blatt. The Cavs do have several key players - Kevin Love, Kyrie Irving, Timofey Mozgov, etc. - coming off offseason surgery and/or lingering injuries and LeBron James' insane workload has been well documented.

Let's see if Blatt and the Cavs stick to this. If everything doesn't start off smoothly, it'll be interesting to see if the Cavs stick to this and keep minutes down.
