Cleveland Cavaliers: Stat Predictions for Every Cavs Starter in 2012-2013
David Richard-US PRESSWIRE

Looking ahead to the 2012-13 season, the young Cavaliers have a lot to look forward to. 

Pairing last year's Rookie of the Year in Kyrie Irving with incoming rookies Dion Waiters and Tyler Zeller gives the Cavs more young talent than they've had in over a decade.

When looking at the starting lineup, one can assume Irving and Varejao have their spots guaranteed. Tristan Thompson will be hard-pressed to not start at power forward, and Alonzo Gee is by fay the most talented small forward on the roster.

While it's unclear whether C.J. Miles or Dion Waiters will begin the season at shooting guard, for the sake of this article and looking into the future, we'll assume Waiters will win the job.

So what can we expect stat-wise from these five starters? Will Irving score more or less now that the talent level around him has gone up? Will Varejao continue the double-double pace he was putting up last season? Will Tristan Thompson develop into more of a scorer or remain just a rebounding and defensive force?

Here is an updated, projected look at the average stats for the Cavs' starters.
