Default Re: Who to draft ?

Getting a bit closer to the draft now and we know the order, so I thought I would refresh this.

As it stands it seems the following players are likely to be picked around the time the Cavs are up:

SG/SF:

Brandon Rush
Chris Douglas-Roberts
Chase Budinger
Donte Green

PF/C:
Kosta Koufos
Javale McGee
Roy Hibbert

Doesn't seem to be any decent PGs around this range, and frankly I kinda like our West/Gibson combo so wouldn't want to pick one anyway.

Anyway the guy I want at this point is Javale McGee (http://youtube.com/watch?v=qJilDqw8JOY). We could use some athleticism and youth in the frontcourt, and while he's still rather raw he certainly has a lot of potential, and we can afford to gamble a bit on a bigman this low in the draft.
Alternatively Kosta Koufus would also be a good pick, with a bit more polished skills but less athleticism (http://youtube.com/watch?v=oLOttXIKIJU)
