So, the trade deadline has come and gone. It was pretty eventful and now the Cavs are starting the rest of their season with a back-to-back. And I’m here with the Cup of Cavs for Feb. 8, 2019. Be sure to leave your feedback below or send your comments to

Take of the day

If you haven’t started already, it’s time to pay attention to the draft. And not just Zion. Start researching everyone the Cavs could possibly take in the lottery and later in the first round with the pick from the Alec Burks deal. So read FTS’ own Trevor Magnotti. Read The Stepien. Read the DraftExprress crew at ESPN. Watch game, even though college basketball can be a slog.

The players you’ll research might be the future of the Cavs. So why not start getting to know them now?
