The Cavaliers will be aggressive in seeking trades involving their first-round pick, with an eye on young All-Star level talent to help “accelerate their rebuild,” ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski said on NBA Countdown.
General manager Koby Altman sat at a desk and watched as the Cavs ended up with the No. 3 overall pick in Tuesday night’s lottery.
Prospects expected to be selected in the Nos. 1-4 range this year include Oklahoma State guard Cade Cunningham, USC center Evan Mobley, Gonzaga guard Jalen Suggs and G League Ignite guard Jalen Green.
Cunningham has said he will only visit one team ahead of the draft — whoever won the first pick.
The Pistons won the No. 1 overall pick, followed by the Rockets, Cavs, Raptors and Magic, respectively. You can view the complete draft order for the first and second rounds right here.
The NBA Draft is scheduled for July 29 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
