Which two Top 10 players from the draft should the Cleveland Cavalier's select, and why?

1. Jeremy Tyler - he's a good forward center prospect a couple years ago and ditched HS for Israel. Maturity issues are a concern, but with a vet duo like Andy Varejao and Antawn Jamison over him, he should be kept in line. This is assuming they both stay in Cleveland.

2. Enes Kanter - certainly another great prospect as a forward-center. He was at UK last year but was declared ineligible, so he never got to play there. No doubt that he will go pro this year since he can't play college ball.

3. Jimmer Fredette - excellent shooter and good playcaller. Could be a new starting point guard for the CAvs

As of now, all three guys will be in the 2011 Draft. If I were a freshman, I'd stay in school because right now the draft could essentially mean no money.

I'd get Kanter and Fredette of the three guys if they were available. That makes a combo of Varejao, Jamison, and Hickson tradeable with minimal loss. I'd trade Jamison out ASAP for a wing player, keep Varejao as the starting center since a rebuilding team still needs a vet leader and Varejao is their new Z. Hickson can also be let go for the right deal.

Irving and T. Jones or Irving and Kanter or Kanter and T. Jones. Barnes is growing on me a bit but I like Jones more.

Norris. Cole. In the second round. Even if you take Irving in the first.

IMO the draft board for the Cavs should be

1. Kyrie Irving- The Cavs might have Sessions and Davis, but neither are here for the long term. Davis is old, Sessions isn't a great passer. Irving gives the Cavs a playmaker who can help guys like Hickson and a scorer who can put up pts for himself. The NBA draft has been filled with great PGs in the last few years and Kyrie is the best one available in this draft.

2. Harrison Barnes- He had a rocky start but he is a great player. Has shown he can be a real efficient scorer. With his jumper he is gonna be a great pro. Still he needs to be more aggressive to the rim. Has the most potential in the draft

3. Kanter- He is a great center prospect. Heavy body, smooth moves, great rebounder. Hard to find big men with all those traints.

4. Sullinger- Undersized version of Kanter?

5. Burks- Underrated as hell. Last two years has been putting up awesome numbers.

I'd take Kyrie and Barnes.....and if Barnes is gone Kyrie and Kanter and if Kyrie is gone Barnes and Kanter

Just please don't take Perry Jones!

Oh yea I just want to add that the Cavs were rumored to make a trade for Hamilton+ Detroits pick near the deadline. Although it didnt pan out they could revisit in near the deadline.

Also lets not forget they still have the huge TPE they can also trade in the deadline

Irving and Barnes would also be good. It'd be funny to see Duke's freshman star and UNC's freshman star have to play together. Very Happy

Harrison Barnes is overrated. I think Irving and Jones would be the best duo, and second would be Iriving and Kanter.

Chris Paul is unappreciated in my opinion. He should have won MVP in '08

Terrence Jones is a stud, so of course I pick him.
Perry Jones reminds me too much of a raw Rashard Lewis..

New answer: nbadraftnet has the Cavs taking Derrick Williams with the 1st overall pick, Alec Burks with the 8th and Norris Cole with the 31st. THATS a damn good draft.

I like that combo as well

Derrick Williams is getting little bit overlooked as a top prospect, but his numbers are respectable.

How about Barnes AND Williams?

I think any combination of Williams, Barnes, and Irving would be amazing. Not sure if any of them would fall to the Clippers pick, though.

Watch them draft Sullinger. LOL

He's a big time leader, defender, can go OFF on offense, rebounds the ball great for a 6-2 180 guy and is a pretty good passer too. Had a 40 pt, 20 rebound 9 assist game.


So better than AI Cool
