Cavs draft day trade possbilities
With picks 1,19,31,33
and all the other pieces there are sure to be some trades being made.
Any suggestions on what you think the Cavs might do?
My guess would be that they might trade a second round pick or 2 to trade up from 19 if they fell in love with a player, say shabazz falls to 13, 14 or 15 or if the cavs love karasev(chad ford says they do) they could move up, other than that or trading up from the second round if they love a guy at the end of the first round round other than that I dont see them doing anything right now.
I doubt they'll trade #1. Out of shape or not, they should take Ben McLemore or someone somewhat medically reliable. I haven't heard a good enough rumor for them to give the pick away.
If Charlotte would be crazy enough to trade their #1 pick from next year to the Cavs, then the Cavs should do that to get Wiggins or Jabari.
It's funny that McLemore and Porter have nearly no injury history while Bennett, Noel, and Len are all coming off injuries.
I have been hearing that granger is on the block, and with alex len being weighted number 1 pick,
pacers give: danny granger
cavs give: gee, zeller and the 19th pick?,
No way Cavs give up Zeller. Maybe CJ Miles, but Indiana's situation would be a complete salary dump. Well unless Cavs sign Pekovic then draft Len or Noel, then that scenario is plausible.
Why wouldn't the cavs not trade zeller? Many articles says that the management is dissapointed at zeller, that is why they are drafting alex len, they woud have varejao and alex len, t.thompson manning the paint
They are not just going to give away Zeller, way too soon for that. He could be a decent rotational big off the bench, and you just don't give away height.
If I were MN I'd offer 26+Luke Ridnour for 31 and 33 but I doubt Cleveland wants another guaranteed contract.
I don't see who would trade down with them for the 19th, 31st, and 33rd picks. To me 2nd-9th picks are too high to trade for those three.
Portland would be a good trade down partner but they already have three 2nd round picks.
Philadelphia has shown interest in stashing an international prospect but they would be much better off with the value of drafting KCP, Bazz, Zeller, Adams or Olynyk rather than stashing Gobert and selecting two 2nd round talents.
OKC has a late 1st and early 2nd so they may even try to move up and don't need more 2nd round picks similar to Portland.
Mavs have been reportedly trying to sell their pick not add money to their cap.
Utah maybe a good candidate to trade down for Larkin or Schroeder although Boston and Milwaukee will likely scoop both PG prospects.
Milwaukee isn't much value for the trade only moving up four spots.
Cavs maybe stuckbwith their picks here, might just have to draft and stash international prospects.
