Cavs Cavs strggling on who to draft with #1 pick

I really hope they take Irving, otherwise they might be forced to take Walker if Utah takes Knight. Therefor leaving us with very few options.

Quote:
Eight days before the NBA draft, Cleveland Cavaliers coach Byron Scott told Yahoo! Sports the franchise isn’t close to deciding whether to use the No. 1 pick on Duke guard Kyrie Irving or Arizona forward Derrick Williams.

The Cavaliers have the first and fourth picks in the June 23 draft in Newark, N.J. Who they decide to take with the top pick could be determined by whether they decide to pursue another guard like Kentucky’s Brandon Knight or Connecticut’s Kemba Walker at No. 4 – or whether they receive an enticing trade offer, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. The Cavs also have workouts scheduled for early next week that will factor in their decision.

“The main reason is we want to do our due diligence on the other guys as well,” Scott said on why a decision hasn’t been made. “We have a few more workouts we want to get in before we really want to start evaluating on who we think is the best possible pick at No. 1 and who we think is the best at No. 4. So, by no means, has anyone in our organization who has been to our workouts said, ‘Derrick Williams is our first pick’ or ‘Kyrie Irving is our first pick.’

“We’re all keeping an open mind and understand we have a few more workouts to go through. Both of those guys are very, very good basketball players in our minds. Both are going to have a long career, but no way are we set on a guy.”

Scott said one of his friends called recently to suggest the Cavaliers draft Williams first and Knight fourth. Such a move would be risky because Knight is getting consideration from the Utah Jazz with the third pick. Sources said Cleveland has already worked out Turkish center Enes Kanter and Texas forward Tristan Thompson, and has heavily scouted Czech Republic forward Jan Vesley and Lithuanian center Jonas Valanciunas. They also have a workout scheduled with Knight.

Still say the draft will be:

Irving
Williams
Knight or Walker
Kanter
Knight or Walker

And i also wouldn't be all that surprised if that rumour a couple weeks ago about us trading for #2 was true.

Maybe. However, if that happens, then I anticipate Minnesota makes some kind of trade, either on draft day or soon after the new CBA is hammered out. By adding Williams to their roster, the T-Wolves just create an even bigger log jam at the SF/PF spots.

Knight will be gone at #4 imo.


If i were them i'd go with Irving and then take one of Kanter, Valciunas or Leonard at #4. Williams/Knight likely go 2/3 anyway.

Good thing is, we'll get one of Irving, Williams, Walker, Knight, Kanter which seem to be the top 5. One of those players will be a Raptor unless we trade the pick.

the Twolves are definitely hoping Cleveland grabs Williams... Beasley is pretty much the exact same player. exact same mold... too small for PF, too big for SG... perfect for SF.

sure they will have a logjam at PG if they grab Irving, but i can guarantee Rubio is packaged somehow.
Rubio is still a mystery, and with the way Beasley played last year, they are happy with SF right now. no need to change what they already have.

This is how we should all hope the draft goes if we can't move up.

Cleveland-Irving
Minnesota-Williams
Utah-Kanter (Because apparently they're not too high on Knight)
Cleveland-Anyone but a PG
Toronto-Knight

This is a really likely scenario, another would be that Utah picks Knight and Cleveland picks Kanter, making Cleveland huge winners in the draft and screwing us over.

I agree, but really at this point one of Knight or Walker would be welcomed by me. And one of them should be there for us.

Is that a mock draft or did they say that the cavs are leaning towards Irving or something like that.

Sportscenter said Cavs plan to make Irving #1 pick and they're also looking to deal the #4 pick.

If we could get #4 and #5 we could pick up a C and a PG, our two greatest positions of need, it'd be a good omen for the year.

I'm note sure how we'd swing #4, though.
