Top Potential Trade Packages, Scenarios for Cleveland Cavs No. 1 2014 Draft Pick
USA TODAY Sports

When the Cleveland Cavaliers bucked the odds yet again, landing the No. 1 pick in the heralded 2014 NBA draft, a whole world of possibilities opened up for them. 

Going into the lottery, the Cavs were saddled with the No. 9 pick and a 1.7 percent chance of moving all the way up to the top of the board.
