As it stands, the cavs will have 4 of the top 33 picks
 
Obviously that could easily change, but we should have a ton of picks

currently draftexpress us getting cody zeller, alex poythress, patric young, and reggie bullock. we clearly have our pg, sg and pf positions set, so we need a sf and/or a center.

personally, i hate cody zeller. he has short arms, and isnt especially athletic, his rebounding numbers are pretty mediocre for a big man, and i dont see how he is gonna score in the nba, plus with average length and athleticism, is he really gonna be a great defender?

we are probably gonna package some picks together and try move up again, no coach wants to have 4 rookies on his roster.

guys id like to see us taget at the top of the draft are otto porter, shabazz muhammad (if he can play sf), nerlens noel, or rudy gobert.

gobert and noels both have the potential to be game changers defensively, and our defense is currently terrible. both could have trouble offensively, especially alongside tristan, but we need some defensive desperately.

porter is a jack of all trades, can play great D, doesnt need to dominate the ball, is smart, and can space the floor. basically just fit in perfect with the guys we already have.

bazz is just a great scorer, of the 4, he would be the last guy i want, but he fits a need, and can shoot from outside. great motor, but questionable intangibles, he seemed to be a real ball hog at ucla, and lied about his age.



my dream scenario would be, we trade the 3 pick, for the 8th pick and a vet to be a backup big who can space the floor. draft porter with the 8th pick.

then trade the 32, 33, and 16th pick, to move up a couple spots, and get gobert.

so we end up with a roster of:

kyrie/livingston
dion/ellington
porter/gee
tristan/speights/vet big
zeller/gobert

and give gobert a couple years to develop, hopefully into an elite defensive big.

so what do you guys hope for, from the cavs draft?

this greek kid (son of nigerian immigrants) sounds really intriguing, very raw though: http://www.draftexpress.com/article/...etokunbo-4090/

chad ford (espns draft guy) was on the bs report recently, and when asked about the cavs, he said that he knows already who the cavs are gonna take, otto porter. probably hyperbole, so tk it with a grain of salt, still exciting nonetheless though.

the only thing i care about for these last couple RS games, is the lakers beating out the jazz for the last playoff spot.

i feel dirty rooting for the lakers

Hoping for a SF and another C.

Don't think Tyler Zeller will be good enough to be the starting C of the future.

yeah considering how polished a scorer, and how old he is for a rookie, i expected a bit more. he doesnt have much upside, and is contributing little atm.

so the lakers made the playoffs, which means that we get their pick.

nope just the 4 still. we have both of our own, an early second rounder, and now the lakers pick. had the lakers missed the playoffs, we would have gotten miamis irst rounder instead of the lakers' first rounder.
