Finally we're into the real meat and potatoes of the NBA draft.
This pick will be affected by the direction the Cavs go with their first selection in the draft, so here are picks for a couple of scenarios.
Best Pick (if drafting SF with first pick): Evan Fournier, 6'7" 19-year-old SG, France
Evan Fournier is the only international player set to go in the first round and with good reason, as there really aren't any intriguing foreign prospects this year.
Fournier is leading his first-division French league team with 14 points per game and has truly impressed scouts with his play thus far.
He has great size for the SG position and has been in the top five in points and steals in his league. He is shooting 43 percent from the field and although his 27.1 percent from beyond the arc leaves something to be desired, he has a good shooting motion and should be able to improve.
If the Cavs take a SF with their first pick, Fournier could step in and fill the hole at SG fairly quickly.
Best Pick (if drafting SG with first pick): Arnett Moultrie, 6'11" Junior C, Mississippi State
Moultrie is my pick if the Cavs draft a 2-guard with their first pick.
I know everyone is high on Fab Melo but the fact is that Arnett Moultrie is leaps and bounds ahead of Melo offensively, hitting 40 percent of his jump shots.
He doesn't have the Melo's NBA body but his frame will be able to handle some extra muscle as he matures. He shoots very well from the line and is a much better rebounder than Melo, pulling in 10.5 per game compared to Melo's 5.8.
Backup Pick (either way): Fab Melo, 7'0" Sophomore, Syracuse
Basically he's not as good as Moultrie but he has a much better frame and is more developed defensively. There is a premium on 7'0", 250-pound centers in this league and if the first two options aren't available, then I say pull the trigger on him—if only so the Miami Heat don't get him.
