The Cleveland Cavaliers are the luckiest team in basketball. Last night, they won the NBA draft lottery for the third time in four years and can now pick from the best college players in a bid to improve their team. But reports today have suggested that they may not even use their pick at all.
According to ESPN.com, Cavs GM David Griffin received calls from teams interested in trading for the number one pick almost immediately after the lottery.
"I actually got calls right afterward, while I was standing there doing media," Griffin said, "Teams were already reaching out and texting, so I think it will be an active period of time."
Griffin's words seem to indicate that the Cavs will certainly listen to all offers on the table over the next few weeks before making their decision about whether to keep the pick. They would be wise to do that with a number of teams below them sure to be clamouring for the top rated players.
However, perhaps the Cavs could be even more greatly improved by trading the pick for an experienced veteran rather than a green rookie.
Either way, Cavs fans will certainly be expecting better results than the previous few seasons.
What do you think the Cavaliers should do with the number one pick? Let us know in the comments.
