At the top of the draft, there are a number of different directions that the Cavaliers can go. Just two years ago they won the lottery and drafted budding superstarKyrie Irving and the improving Tristan Thompson. Last year, they went with Dion Waiters and Tyler Zeller. Other that they are thin across the roster and need to add talent. But one position in particular is in dire need of filling.
For two years, the team avoided filling the slot left void by The King to save that player from the pressure of replacing a legend. Otto Porter Jr. is the perfect prospect to take that mantle. He fits a need, can play with Irving, and has the potential to be a truly great player at his position.
They can also go big with Nerlens Noel, perimeter scoring with Ben McLemore, or trade out of the spot for a veteran. The team could use a veteran to help them make the jump from “will be good in a few years” to “good right now.” Who is available? What is this No. 1 pick worth? Should the Cavaliers entertain a move? So many things can happen here at the top that will cause a major ripple effect through the rest of the draft.
