Default Re: Wolves Will Pick Irving If He Slips


The Cavaliers, after taking the temperature of the Timberwolves and Jazz to see if Kyrie Irving could somehow fall to No. 4 in Thursday's NBA draft, are planning to select the former Duke guard as the No. 1 pick and are fielding offers for the fourth pick, league sources said Monday.

As expected the attempt at misdirection was dumb and fizzled quickly.

There was no realist deal that could take place between those 2 teams below them and they realized if they were to pass on Irving it gave the other 2 teams more leverage with their picks on trades. They should have been combing the league thoroughly with the idea 4rth pick was available as soon as the draft order was determined.

But what they found out is that getting both players would be a stretch.

Utah has called Minnesota in an attempt to move up to No. 2, looking to land Williams or Irving, a source told's Andy Katz. But the Timberwolves were sticking with the plan of keeping the pick if the Cavs don't select Williams, according to a source.
