Irving, Williams, Knight are likely 1, 2 and 3.

Hmmm. Is Kemba more Nate Robinson or T.J. Ford?

I think BC will either trade up or trade out if Knight is not there. If we stay at 5 and Knight is gone it looks like Walker, Leonard, Kanter. Mehhh!

Derrick Williams Thinks He Can Replace LeBron In Cleveland - RealGM Wiretap

There's a dude with a lot of confidence. It would be interesting if the Cavs felt like he could even come to 75-80% close and they did take him 1st then Knight with the 4th to back-up and learn from Davis. Resign Parker for another year and that would be a decent line-up plus they will have a ton of cap space after next year to find a SG and back-up PF. I could even see Cleveland trading the expiring of Jamison for something and a pick next year as that draft is so strong.

Davis/Knight/Sessions
Parker/Gibson/Harris
Williams/Eyenga/Graham
Hickson/Jamison/Harangody
Varejao/Hollins/Erden

IMHO, if I were Cleveland and had Davis, Sessions and possibly Knight as PG's, I would totally take Williams 1st - especially with the SF position being the weakest.

I would do exatly that. They're guaranteed a good PG @ #4. Hell maybe they can trade the 4 pick + ??? To Minny and get the #2 pick as well. Doubtful though.

I doubt that too, Minny is starved for a PG and Irving may fall into their lap.

Funny, I just read this on NBADraft.net on Clevelands top 8 potential pairings:
http://www.nbadraft.net/cav%E2%80%99...ble-draft-duos

1. Williams - Brandon Knight

If the Cavs are seeking an explosive impact, the combination of Williams and Knight might be just right. Unlike the pair at #2 on this list, Williams and Knight were both beasts on the court for the entire college hoops season.

While Knight may not be the “pure” PG that Irving is, he displayed consistent scoring ability while still getting his team involved (17.3 ppg, 4.2 apg). He also showed a knack for the moment, hitting big shot after big shot to propel Kentucky to wins. Teaming him up with Williams would provide the Cavs with two terrific scoring options that both are well adept at getting to the free throw line.

The tandem would also be quite the 1-2 punch in the fast break game.

There are also some risks associated with this pairing. Knight lacks the polish of Irving and Williams is somewhat of a SF/PF tweener. But the unrelenting energy they’d bring to the franchise and to the downtrodden Cavs fans would be undeniable.

It may be a bit of a gamble, but together this dynamic duo could rule the vacated throne in Cleveland.

New Biyombo highlights. Awareness defensively looks to be off the charts. Gonna be a work in progress on the other end, but I think he's further along than most give him credit for. Anywho, food for thought.

wow. that's a lot of strong 2 handed dunks and athletic blocks at the rim for one season. and he's bulkier than i thought he was.

i was sour on the idea of going after a gamble like this, but this vid has piqued my interest. while he may indeed be another pf, he definitely brings a skill set that we do not have right now. a crazy athletic, shot blocking big man that takes it strong the the rack is exactly what we need. with a 7-7 wing span, who cares how tall he is? my worry was strength, but he doesn't seem to lack in that department at all. i would love to see his low-lite reel as well to see how raw he is.

jose might look a lot better with a guy like biyombo behind him.

The same guy ''Vilniaus Vilkas'', made a good mix about Donatas Motiejunas. Sound in this video pretty messed up...

Knight Thinks He Can Have Similar Impact As Wall, Rose - RealGM Wiretap

For a weak draft class these guys are sure not short on confidence.

Bismack Biyombo Would instantly become the leading shot blocker on the raps that kid lives to through down dunks block shots and rebound !
Watch how quick he gets of the ground and how fluid he is running the court this kid would be a great fit in any scheme and worth the gamble in a projected weak draft.

no convincing me of Bismack's qualities...I'm a big fan if you've read any of my posts. Thing about Jonas is he has the real ability to be a great 2way center

No kidding. Burks compared himself to a young McGrady. I like Burks, a lot, but that's far-fetched to say the least.

Draft a big guy, seriously you guys. Ed Davis is great, but he's no Center.
