The Cleveland Cavaliers are still drinking in the euphoria of winning their first ever NBA title, but attentions will need to start turning to next season shortly if they are to have a chance at retaining the Larry O'Brien trophy.
LeBron James is yet to commit to the Cavs this offseason - although he is widely expected to do so - Richard Jefferson has retired and then un-retired while Timofey Mozgov has set off for the bright lights of L.A. after signing with the Lakers.
Retaining the bulk of their side must have been at the top of the front offices concerns when they secured the title, and the likes of Jame, Love and Irving are almost guaranteed to return. But, what about the perpetually shirtless J.R Smith?

Chris Haynes of Cleveland.com reported Smith is expected to re-sign with the Cavaliers.
Smith said he prefers to stay in Cleveland, per Haynes: "This is where I want to be. The fans love me; I love them and my teammates."
Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert has shown a willingness to spend whatever is necessary to bring Cleveland success and the Cavs have the league's highest payroll, which incurred a $54 million fine.
The 30-year-old will be among the more interesting players to watch over the summer. His stock has risen since his trade to the Cavs and his sharp-shooting became a handy addition to their arsenal during their run to the NBA Finals.
He's often been considered a handful off the court, but he seemingly found his stride as a supporting act for LeBron in Cleveland. As a high-scoring sixth man, he could attract big offers this summer the Cavs would rue to match.
