Let that sink in for a minute. James Jones...who was brought in for his 3-point shooting...was pressed into duty as the Cavaliers third big man.
Kevin Love was out with an eye injury and that gap pushed Jones up the depth chart. Jones getting 30 minutes was not due to coach David Blatt having an unhealthy Dellavedova-esque fascination with his play. It was just a standard issue, injury-related, depth choice. It is also the perfect illustration of why GM David Griffin needs to get another big.
As an aside: This also highlights a different story line that we had earlier in the season with LeBron. Coming into the season, his weighing significantly less was supposed to highlight his desire to play more exclusively at the 3. It certainly comes into question though if the loss of weight also may have affected his ability to adequately play the 4, but that's for a different time.
And as it happens, two semi-quality big men just became available. But who should the team pursue (if they should pursue either)?
