Default Glance at Cavs going into draft lottery

They have another first-round pick at No. 19 (from the Lakers). They also have gobs of available space under the salary cap.

So not only do they have assets to draft more young players, or trade the picks for veterans, they have the financial freedom to play the free-agency game come July.

And yes, Cavs general manager Chris Grant will consider all those options, and travel down all possible paths. In the world of Cleveland pro basketball, itís winniní time.

The Cavs have already started that process, using the lottery to land All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving, improving power forward Tristan Thompson and dynamic shooting guard Dion Waiters during the past two off-seasons.

If you're going to make a thread about something like this, especially if you're the site founder, at least write something original on your behalf. Not post articles from other news agencies. Specially FOX. :/

I really would like to see us trade the picks. Get someone good for number one. We can afford it. I think getting LaMarcus Aldridge from Portland would be a good one to do. Damien Lillard came aboard, that is his team now and Portland needs to move on anyway. It would of been great to have Aldridge/Roy/Oden (Durant instead of Oden had they went that route) but it didn't work out.

I would love to have DeMarcus Cousins if he wasn't so difficult to deal with and Mike Brown is just not the kind of coach to deal with stuff like that.

Stat is another I have heard but he is so risky now. He's got this huge contract that the Knicks would love to get rid of and we afford him. But, can he still deliver? He was having a great year in 2010-11 until Melo arrived. He just hasn't been the same.
