NBA Draft Order 2011: What Will Cleveland Cavaliers Do with First Overall Pick?
NBA Draft Order 2011 Sees Cavaliers Grab First Overall Pick, But Who Should They Take?
The NBA Draft order 2011 is set in stone, after the NBA Draft lottery came to a close Tuesday night, and the Cleveland Cavaliers landed the first overall pick, giving them the best chance to rebuild their franchise after LeBron James bolted for Miam last offseason.
But, the Cavs also have a glut of potential choices who could work first overall. Anyone from Duke point guard Kyrie Iriving, Arizona forward Derrick Williams, and Turkish center Enes Kanter could all be potential top picks, given the talent on the board.
Who will the Cavs decide to build their franchise around with the first overall pick?
The likely choice is Irving. Cleveland could use a point guard in a big way (no, Baron Davis does not count, especially considering his issues staying in shape), and Irving is by far the best one in the draft. He's a balanced, intelligent player, capable of learning the ropes while starting shortly after next season starts.
He's still a bit raw, but as the most talented player on the board, the talent-deprived Cavs just can't pass him up and risk missing out on him,
Williams would be another solid pick here, but their need isn't as great at forward, and Irving's upside is a bit better over the long term.
