A year and a half after LeBron James left the Cleveland Cavaliers for the Los Angeles Lakers, are the Cavaliers any closer to putting together a contending roster without LeBron?

Tuesday night's report from ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski that, according to league sources, Cleveland and first-year coach John Beilein are parting ways makes this a good time to check in on the Cavaliers' rebuild, now under its fourth coach. It's J.B. Bickerstaff's task to develop Cleveland's recent lottery picks while figuring out how veterans Andre Drummond and Kevin Love fit in with the young talent.

Having spent four years in the lottery between James' first departure and his return in the summer of 2014, the Cavaliers haven't made the playoffs without LeBron in more than two decades. Has Cleveland made progress toward ending that streak? And where do the Cavaliers go from here?

Let's take a look.
