I hope that they do pick wiggins...Everyone of the commentators are saying either Parker or Embiid though...

I preferred Parker if they weren't going to take Embid.  But hey that must be why I don't make the big bucks and the big decisions like the front offices do

I was reading how the Cavs front office personnel preferred Parker but Gilbert wanted Wiggins so he probably didn't budge on who he wanted.  Now, I suppose we'll see if they end up keeping the pick or make some sort of trade.

Untrue based on Griffin's comments

Bill Simmons needs to be fired. The guy is awful.

My man @Chris_Broussard just reported Kevin Love would-re-sign longterm with Cle. if he's traded there & Cavs convinced LeBron to come home

you beat me BassDropper :) 

but that is huge!!!!! but still a BIG IF

I would be pissed if they made that deal. You would have to give up so much without any guarantees. Could set the franchise back more than they are now. Keep Wiggins and move forward.

If they could get away with giving up Waiters, Thompson, Bennett, A.V and some draft picks to get K Love then why not? You would have Kyrie, LBJ, Wiggy and K Love and go from there. I would take that foursome any day! That is better than an aging big 3 most of those guys are 25 and under! That's 7-10 years of dominance potentially! Still seems unlikely though.

There is no guarantee LeBron will come to Cleveland. Why give up all of your pieces for a fairytale?

Pair of number one picks can really put the ship in the right direction. Hope Kyrie can stay healthy and Wiggins turns out. Gotta make up for what has to be considered the worst first over all ever last year. Much better draft this year to own the top spot. Best of luck Cavs!

Do I come off as arrogant? Shame on me, I was hoping it would more obvious.

I think Anthony Bennett will be better this year.

For once I agreed with Bill Simmons when he said "NBA Teams need to stop helping the Heat."

BlockO's picture

So true

IGotAWoody's picture

The Hornets turned one pick into 3 picks with that move. They aren't trying to "help the Heat", that was a smart move. All just so the Heat could move up from 26 to 24. 

Remember: Bill Simmons is NEVER right. About anything.

I think Joe Harris is a good player and I'm fine with the pick. However, when you have a top 20 talent on the board in the second round you have to take him. Early should have been the pick.

Great pick for the Knicks. No idea how Cleanthony Early wasn't a top 20 pick. He dropped 31 against Kentucky in the tourney.

Cavs get 1 of 2 picks right with Wiggins. Still, there is hope post draft. We have lots of cap space. 

Go Bucks!

And add KBD, Russell and Lee (or is it a Thompson this year, I can't recall ATM). Those combinations is awesome!
