Post-NBA Trade Deadline Power Rankings for Each Cleveland Cavaliers Player

A shakeup in the Cleveland Cavaliers roster brings an exciting new addition—and fresh player power rankings!

While the Cavs didn't pull off any blockbuster trade-deadline deals, they did manage to acquire PF/C Channing Frye from the Orlando Magic. The move is bittersweet, of course, as Cleveland had to part with the city's longest-tenured professional athlete in Anderson Varejao. Originally acquired via trade in 2004 along with Drew Gooden, Varejao was sent to the Portland Trail Blazers along with a 2018 protected first-round pick.

Seldom-used shooting guard Jared Cunningham was also sent packing to the Orlando Magic, leaving the Cavaliers roster at just 13 players.

Just for fun, we'll squeeze Frye into these rankings based on where he's projected to fit into the rotation. While Cleveland will eventually add a few free-agent buyouts to round out the roster, this is close to the final picture we'll see come playoff time.
