The Cleveland Cavaliers have been left somewhat short at the one spot since opting against matching the Milwaukee Bucks' offer for Matthew Dellavedova. 

Kyrie Irving is their undoubted point guard star but the departure of Delly then retirement of Mo Williams has left them with only rookie Kay Felder to support Uncle Drew.

However, for the time being at least, it appears head coach Tyronn Lue will be using the former Golden Grizzlies guard as the second-choice point guard. 

As per Cleveland.com, Lue said: "Right now we'll say he's going to be our backup point guard for right now."

Despite this assertion, the coach, who is heading into his first full season at the helm, believes the team's plan to run the offence in the absence of Irving will be done 'by committee'.

"We'll just see how the flow of the game goes, and what is going on in the game," the 39-year-old added. 

What that means is, even if Felder is on the floor, he may not be the general - that job could fall to anybody who is having a strong night. 

But being second string point guard for the defending champions in your rookie season is a huge role for Felder. Hopefully, he grabs the opportunity with both hands.
