I would like to start this by saying that I am a Celtics fan, but I live in Columbus so I have a pretty good feel for the cavs team and the fan base.
Pre draft trades:
1. Trade JJ Hickson and Ramon Sessions to the Bobcats for number 9, plus Matt Carroll and Garrett Temple to make the salary math work. ( not sure if this would actually work, but what the hell it's my fan post).
2. Trade Anthony Parker and use the trade exception from LeBron for Richard Hamiltion and the number 8 pick.
3. Attempt to buy an early or mid second round pick (let's say number 41 from the Lakers)
Without further ado, I present my draft plan:
pick number 1 (1): Kyrie Irving, PG, Duke
pick number 2 (4): Enes Kanter, C, Turkey
pick number 3 (8) Tristan Thompson, PF, Texas
pick number 4 (9) Alec Burks, SG, Colorado
pick number 5 (32) Jeremy Tyler, PF/C, China
pick number 6 (41) Kyle Singler, SF, Duke
pick number 7 (54) David Lighty, SG/SF, OSU
let me know what everyone thinks, I want some opinions on this.
