Cavs Cavs fan here to talk draft with Raptors fans

this could have gone in the NBA thread but i posted it here and the Mods could move if they feel fit.

what do you fans think your teams top 5 on their board is? do you think you will try to make any trades? who do you guys want most?

i know the Cavs Love Irving but i just have this feeling we will pick 3rd, and Clippers pick will be 10th or 11th and we will take Harrison Barnes and one of the Euro scrubs

on the other hand the cavs still have a almost 15 Mil in TPE and could use that and the #3 pick to try to get the #1 pick or use the #3 and Clippers pick to get the #1 and still get Irving but Chad ford says he's heard that we have Irving #1, and Barnes #2 and Jonas Valanciunas #3 and there was a tweet out today the Cavs were very unimpressed with Perry Jones this year

also ive seen alot of you guys talk about Sully but i think you guys can cross him off your list, every thing around columbus seems to be that hes staying, ad his father keeps telling the media he is staying and wants to win an NC its always been his dream and he knows as long as theres not a serious injury the NBA will always be there

but his Dad is retiring from coaching HS basketball after this year, could it be to move with his son? who knows but he is 62 so it could be age as well

i still think Barnes has the most potential out of anybody in the draft but he's so scary because he hasnt dominated all year but he has become a lockdown defender and has shown flashes at times of how good he can be maybe its just Roy Williams system? maybe his game just doesnt fit the College level?

I pretty much agree, although i wouldn't be pissed if we can get a good SF. But Calderon seriously needs to be replaced. His last 10 games he's shooting 29% 13% from 3, in our 38 losses this season he's barely shooting 40%, where has his offense gone. Not to mention his D still sucks balls.

2012 draft looks like a PG draft.. Myck Kabongo, Austin Rivers,...
If don't get Irving, we can tank another year!

If there is a lockout and a lot of good players stay in school for one more year, the 2012 draft would be stacked with talent!

Austin Rivers more of a SG than PG. But yeah the 2012 draft could be VERY DEEP if players decided to return to college because of the lockout.

About a week prior to his banishment to the Detroit Pistons’ bench in January, Richard Hamilton(notes) berated coach John Kuester in a jarring and expletive-filled diatribe on the practice court, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

As stunned coaches and teammates watched, Hamilton bellowed at Kuester that he had been a failure in his two seasons in Detroit, blown the opportunity the franchise afforded him and was nothing more than a career assistant coach, sources said. Despite Hamilton yelling within inches of him, Kuester didn’t respond.

Several of the team’s younger players were mortified watching it and privately told agents and associates they wished they had the courage to stand up, confront Hamilton and try to take control back from the disgruntled veteran. Nevertheless, Hamilton influences a powerful lobby in the Pistons’ locker room, including veteran leaders Tayshaun Prince(notes) and Ben Wallace(notes).

The early January incident was the second time Hamilton had initiated a confrontation with Kuester this season, sources said, and it ultimately spurred the benching that led to such public acrimony. Once a cornerstone of an NBA championship and six straight trips to the Eastern Conference finals, Hamilton helped orchestrate a player protest on Friday morning by skipping the team’s morning shootaround in Philadelphia.

Kuester played Hamilton two more games in early January – which included a scoreless performance against Chicago – before moving him to the bench on a permanent basis. Since Jan. 10, Hamilton’s played only one game for the Pistons.

With $25 million left on a contract that runs through the 2013 season, Hamilton had been nearly impossible to trade for Detroit. Still, Pistons general manager Joe Dumars and Cleveland Cavaliers general manager Chris Grant had an agreement to send Hamilton and a lottery-protected 2012 first-round draft pick for a $12.6 million trade exception and a second-round draft pick on Thursday, sources said.

Cleveland was mostly interested in the draft pick, but was willing to let Hamilton join the team for the remainder of his contract. Once Hamilton made clear he didn’t want to play for a last-place team, his representatives discussed a contract buyout that would’ve allowed him to likely join the Chicago Bulls, sources said. Cleveland wanted him to take $18 million in the buyout, arguing that he could secure his 2011-12 salary now when it’s possible that money wouldn’t be paid him during a lockout next season.

Hamilton declined, and the trade died within an hour of the Thursday afternoon deadline. Hamilton stayed in Detroit, and turned out to be one of several players who boycotted Friday’s shootaround and were benched in the 110-94 loss to the 76ers.

Fines are expected for the players who were without an excuse for missing the shootaround. Despite Kuester’s struggles, the prospect of firing him in-season has been difficult to even broach because of the uncertainty of the franchise’s expected ownership change. As the organization waits for a pending sale to businessman Tom Gore, basketball operations have been largely crippled to make moves that impact finances.






What i find interesting is Gilbert was pretty much willing to pay 18 Million for a 1st round pick next year. man with Gilberts money the Cavs could be back into the playoffs by 2014 and a title contender by 2015 with a young stacked roster and an owner whos willing to do whatever it takes to rebuild right now
