NCAA Basketball: Big East Tournament-Georgetown vs Syracuse

Many experts and draft aficionado’s expect the Cleveland Cavaliers to select Kentucky center Nerlens Noel with the #1 overall pick in next months draft.

Noel is considered a project, a player who is a couple of years away from contributing anything but blocks and rebounds, so the rumors have started about the Cavs looking around, and possibly trading that top pick. 

The Washington Post is reporting that another option for the Cavs would be Georgetown forward Otto Porter.

But there is a possibility that Porter, arguably the most NBA-ready player among the top prospects, might not be around when the Wizards pick third. A source with knowledge of the Cavaliers’ thinking said Porter is under consideration to go No. 1.

Porter can definitely see himself going #1 as well.

“I definitely see myself up there,” Porter said last week in Chicago, adding that he believes he can flourish at the next level. “My versatility. I think that’s definitely going to show when I get to the NBA. My ability to rebound, bring it up the court, make something happen or set up the play. Anything that it has in store for me, I think my versatility is going to carry over.”
