Folks, the Cleveland Cavaliers. Let’s have a good Thursday.

The Cavs getting him for a bad first and Dante Exum’s expiring as part of the four-team James Harden trade is probably the best trade or free agent signing of the Koby Altman era.

He also brings a needed fun factor to the team because of how he plays. It feels like once a game he puts up a poster dunk:

llen is just fun and plays really hard and he’s at the literal center of what the Cavs are right now. That’s cool.
