Default Re: 2012 Cavaliers Draft Recap

Associated Press:

A number of draft pundits have suggested that South Philadelphia's Dion Waiters was chosen too high. The Syracuse sophomore, who played his final two high school seasons at Burlington's Life Center, was taken No. 4 by the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Too high? Not for the Cavs.

"I think we got a steal," coach Byron Scott told the media on draft night."

This is the second year the Cavs picked a player at No. 4 who was projected by mock draftologists to go lower. Last year it was 6-9 Texas freshman Tristan Thompson, who averaged 8.2 points in 23.7 minutes for the Cavs.
