On May 21, 2013, the Cleveland Cavaliers won the 2013 NBA Draft Lottery.
It's hard to express in words how incredible it is at this point to get the fist pick in the draft after suffering through the insufferable end of the season last month. But here it is.
We'll continue and increase our draft coverage here at Stepien Rules. I'm sure you noticed that our pre-lottery mock draft included PodCAVS veteran Alex Raffalli. Alex and I have followed the draft and NBA prospects very closely over the last 3 years and attended the 2011 Kyrie Irving NBA draft. Alex is a strong addition that Mr. Bowers and I are proud to bring you.
I'm immediately calling for Nerlens Noel. We'll see how this goes, but tonight, let it sink in Cavaliers fans. We all deserve this.
Perry Jones used to be more highly regarded than Noel is now.
Jones is taller than Noel and a much better offensive player.
Trade #1, and #19 for #12, Thunders #1 in 2014, Jones & Jeremy Lamb.
Trade Thunder #12, Thunder 1st rd.er in 2014, & a 2013 2nd-rd.er for # 2 or #3 and choose Otto Porter.
Cavs wind up with Porter, Perry Jones, Lamb.
C-Andy + Zeller/ PF-Jones + TT/SF-Porter + Gee/G-Irving, Waiters, Lamb, Ellington.
