Original 2013 Draft: No. 11
Michael Carter-Williams—he's been the best rookie by a mile, and he's got the upside to justify the value of a No. 1 pick.
At this point, the only possible argument against Carter-Williams is that he plays the same position as Kyrie Irving.
But given his size at 6'6" and ability to score (17.4 points per game), Carter-Williams just might be what the Cleveland Cavaliers need at the 2-guard position: a pass-first scorer to pair with their score-first point guard.
Dion Waiters, a shoot-first shot-hunter, certainly hasn't been the answer alongside Irving.
Outside of Victor Oladipo, there really isn't another guaranteed winner in the field, and Oladipo just hasn't done enough. Giannis Antetokounmpo's upside is tantalizing, but the Cavs are looking for an NBA-ready contributor here. Plus, Luol Deng is now in the picture at the wing.
I'm a fan of the dual-point guard offense, especially when you can run it with a sizable, versatile weapon like Carter-Williams.
Either way, whether you like the fit or not, sometimes it's just safe to go with the best player available. And in this re-draft, Carter-Williams is it.
