Notes 
 Smith has a great opportunity as the starting power forward. The ceiling is limited but he should get every chance to hold down the job.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
He's a better points league option and didn't really take off when he went to Cleveland.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
  The former first-round pick joined the Cleveland Cavaliers mid-season, and struggled to match his offensive career averages. LeVert posted just 13.6 PPG in 19 games with Cleveland, and saw a decline in his RPG, APG, and field goal percentage. LeVert has averaged at least 18 PPG in the past three seasons, but his future may be as a bench player on an improving Cavaliers roster.
