Analysis: The Cavaliers will sacrifice some interior defense but should be tougher guarding the perimeter, as the move will place offseason addition Jae Crowder in the starting lineup. As for Thompson, the move could mean a few less minutes for the 2011 No. 4 overall pick, who averaged 29.9 per game last season. He should still corral his share of rebounds, and he was hardly an impact scorer to begin with.
