The Cavs considered several opinions from the Cavs' leaders when making the adjustments, which add more movement and continuity to the basic sets installed last season. So far the returns from the populace have been nothing but positive, which is showing during preseason games and practices.
'I think everybody is embracing it,' said Larry Hughes, who openly said he didn't think last season's basic principles took advantage of his talents. 'We really get a chance to get some player movement, guys are not standing around so much. To make cuts and get defenses moving will be good for us.'
There are several goals within the new system. One is to get quick players the ball while moving to the basket, which is a facet specifically aimed at getting more out of Hughes and also complements the Cavs other main cogs. Another is to get more action in the post, be it guards or big men actually getting the ball near the basket.
