They are targeting Alex Len, so they have a chance to land him with that 6th pick.

 

Only problem is, the Thunder are wanting to move up...and Cleveland may make this deal and lose out on their prospect.

Vasquez? Really?

Give them the 1 and 19 picks for the 6 pick and Eric Gordon.

Reason why Cavs probably want Len is because he remind them of Big Z

Vasquez is a solid PG, a very willing passer in a more offensive minded PG game nowadays. Amazing how much Len's stock has risen and the doubters in Noel as well.

 

Still why trade for a PG, even as a backup would feel like a waste.

You don't think Nerlens Noel has the potential to be one of the best players of all-time?

Oh no their gonna miss out on another overrated big man coming out of college. The cavs know there isnt crap in this draft and their just shopping that pick to get a player that has actually proved something. This whole draft is a crap shoot even more so then normal. Winning the first pick this year isnt nearly as big a deal is it would be if they won it when there was some stud prospects.

Maybe they dont trust kyrie and his injuries? Vasquez is a pretty good back up to have, especially if he keeps progressing in the direction he is going. A tall PG is a big advantage to have, we here in laker land know that.

But that is why it is a waste, Grievis in his first full year starting did great, he shouldn't be a backup. Not saying he is going to be a star either, but his skill set and size gives him an edge over many other PG's. I am a fan of the guy, so I'd hate to see him on a bench, much less for Cleveland behind Kyrie. I get Kyrie is a rising star, but I haven't fully been sold.

Are you saying this would be a bad move for NO or CLE?

Technically both, Kyrie is really young and unless he is definitely injury prone (which really ruins everything regardless), doesn't need this quality of a backup PG. Just use your pick on a definitive big and roll the dice, if not trade it a team that will definitely tank it that way next years pick have more value. I am not sure NOLA will be all that bad next year.

 

As well why trade Grievis for an unknown player, you already have bigs in Davis and Lopez who are pretty good and proven, keep the pick or trade for a guard or more low end picks.

Its not even close.

 

Look up the hype of Wiggins, then Marcus Smart, Jabari Parker, and Randle. Analysists claiming best draft since 2003 as it is currently modeled.

By far better. The two top prospects have drawn comparisons to lebron and melo, of course comparisons really are just hype but the talent in next year draft class makes this draft class look like a recruiting class for jr college's

You really cant get enough depth though. I much rather take Vasquez at this point then any of the gambles out there as the first pick. Also CLE has their eye on a player they can get if they get NO draft pick so they can get done both here. I think it would be a good idea for CLE, but they are asking for too much by also wanting NO draft pick next year which undoubtedly will be a lottery pick. I think a swap of 1st rounders and Vasquez is more fair, and then NO can draft Mclemore, and trade Gordon since he wants out. They do that and they can have a nice little squad going on.
