Could we have a trading brewing for the No. 1 pick.
ESPN.com is reporting that the Cleveland Cavaliers are trying to arrange a last-minute workout with top point guard prospect Dante Exum.
According to ESPN’s Andy Katz, Exum could be an option for the Cavs if they decide to trade down.
The Cavaliers, who already have All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving, are unlikely to take Exum with the No. 1 pick, but he could be an option for the team if it trades down in the draft.
Multiple sources have told ESPN that Cleveland has a few offers for the No. 1 pick, including potential trades with the Magic and the Utah Jazz, who pick at No. 5. If Cleveland holds on to the selection, it is deciding between former Kansas star Andrew Wiggins and Duke’s Jabari Parker at No. 1, sources have said.
Exum of course is already in New York for the Draft, and would only take the trip if he had assurance from Cavs brass that they would select him.
That could open the door for the 76ers to land Andrew Wiggins.
