The Cleveland Cavaliers already have the No. 4 pick in the draft. Cleveland would package their existing No. 4 pick with the No. 8 pick they received from Detroit and send it over to Minnesota. In return, the Timberwolves would send them the No. 2 pick.
Why This Makes Sense For the Minnesota Timberwolves: The Timberwolves have a 21-year-old small forward named Michael Beasley, who just so happened to lead the team in scoring last season. They also have Kevin Love at power forward, who proved last year that he can be the franchise player for this team.
Basically, at No. 2, the prospect of drafting Derrick Williams really doesn't address the holes of Minnesota. The Timberwolves need a point guard and another center. By receiving the No. 4 pick, they will be able to draft Enes Kanter or Brandon Knight/Kemba Walker.
Since the Utah Jazz, who are already loaded with big men, have the No. 3 pick, they will likely draft a guard. The Timberwolves may fall down two picks, but they will still end up with a player they wanted.
Also, at No. 8, there will be plenty of shooting guard and small forward options available.
Why This Makes Sense For the Cleveland Cavaliers: In a draft that most consider to only have two real, All-Star level prospects, the Cavaliers will now have possession of both. With Kyrie Irving at point guard and Derrick Williams at small forward, the fans will have something to cheer about next season.
