During these next few months, the Cavs will have to figure out if their 300 million dollar roster will be worth keeping together. Will it be enough to compete with the Warriors? How much longer will the team stay dominant?

Bearing those questions in mind, it's clear that Koby Altman and the Cleveland front-office has a lot of thinking to do before things heat up in the summer time.
