In what is a very long NBA season, it's inevitable that changes are going to occur. Whether it is because of injury, performance or simply to try something new, coaches tweak their rotations almost on a nightly basis.
Cleveland Cavaliers coach Byron Scott is no different.
Both his starting lineup and rotations have seen many changes. Some who provided key minutes early on in the season, like Omri Casspi, have lost their spots, while others like Luke Walton have gained some playing time as late.
One thing that's certain is a player’s spot in a NBA rotation is almost never safe. As players’ roles change, so will their importance to the team, and in turn their ranking.
