Dwyane Wade Will Come Off the Bench for the Cavaliers

After starting the first three games of the 2017-18 campaign, D-Wade has asked Cavs coach Tyronn Lue for a new role in the rotation, per ESPN's Dave McMenamin. Our goal was to try and see how it was, but I just decided early rather than later just to get to the unit I would be more comfortable in and can probably be better with this team. While he has experience playing alongside LeBron James and still has plenty left in the tank, J.R. Smith has started 157 games at shooting guard for the Cavs over the past three seasons. "Why wait? Three games in, why wait?"

"We talked about it before we got here [that] it'd be a better fit with him coming off the bench", Lue said. "But we also both talked about what I have always done my whole career - I've always started".

And while I have you hear, let me let you in on a little secret ... What you said was right. The 35-year-old guard feels it's best for the team if he comes off the bench. When James got hurt on the second day of training camp, he elevated Wade to the starting lineup alongside Smith because, again, he valued Wade feeling welcome and wanted from the very start considering that he picked the Cavs over other appealing situations in Oklahoma City and San Antonio.

Four games into the season, JR Smith is going back to the starting lineup in place of Dwyane Wade. "I think the first week, like he told y'all, was a long week for him just trying to adjust to a new system, adjust to what we're trying to do". "Just something we're going to do to start the season and see how it works", he said. "It's a better fit for me in the second unit.' For a future Hall of Famer and a guy that's won three National Basketball Association championships to come to the coach and see what's best for the team, that's big time", added Lue. The Cavs are still favoured to come out of the East and reach a fourth consecutive NBA Finals next June.
