For the second straight year, and third time in four years, the Cavaliers got the top pick in the NBA draft by winning the lottery. This time it came at incredible odds, drawing the top pick with just a 1.7 percent chance.
The team stunned everyone by picking Anthony Bennett out of UNLV last year. That choice did not work out very well as Bennett was plagued by injuries.This time around, the Cavaliers have the top choice, but also the pressing matter of finding a head coach. Mike Brown was fired after one season in his latest stint with the team.
We have to wait for over a month until we hear commissioner Adam Silver announce Cleveland’s first choice. Will it by Joel Embiid or Andrew Wiggins of Kansas, Jabari Parker of Duke, Julius Randle of Kentucky, or another shocking selection.If I was Cleveland, I would go with Parker. I feel he is the most NBA-ready player of the elite possibilities. He can score inside or outside, can rebound, defend.
