The Cavs have to get rid of the #1 pick. They simply can’t afford to draft Noel Nerlens, a skinny big man with a bad knee with the #1 overall selection. History tells us that would end badly.
It wouldn’t be a prudent move. If they were smart they would stay on the line with the Timberwolves until they get a deal done. Here is the latest from Sheridan Hoops.
The Cleveland Cavaliers are fielding calls from everywhere, but the team they’d really like to make a deal with is Minnesota.
And if the Timberwolves are willing to surrender Kevin Love, the No. 1 pick is available to them, sources tell SheridanHoops.com.
Kevin Love is going to opt out his deal in 2015 and leave anyway, so it might be best for the Timberwolves to get something done now instead of waiting for later.
Love and Kyrie Irving would be great combo, in addition to whatever 1st round pick the Cavs pick up in this year’s draft. I don’t see a lot of difference between the #1 and #15 picks in this draft, so to be able to get Love and another player would be a slam dunk for Cavs.
