2011 NBA Mock Draft: Will the Cleveland Cavaliers Draft Kyrie Irving at No. 1?

Proving karma to be a very real entity (looking at you, LeBron), the Cleveland Cavaliers won the first and fourth picks in the 2011 NBA Draft. In a draft widely seen as two deep, the Cavaliers' front office is jostling with the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Detroit Pistons to find a way to trade for the Timberwolves' pick at No. 2.

The Cavaliers would likely use the top two picks to select point guard Kyrie Irving from Duke and Arizona forward Derrick Williams. Neither is considered a sure thing; questions remain as to Irving's toe injury (which caused him to miss two-thirds of the season) and Williams' "tweener" status.

Assuming the Cavs don't get the deal done, they'll hope Minnesota and Utah look elsewhere (internationally, perhaps) for the second and third picks. In all likelihood though, Williams won't be available at No. 4.

With Kyrie Irving all but a sure thing to go first, how will the Cavaliers choose their next rebuilding piece at No. 4 with Derrick Williams unavailable? And where will other notable prospects like Enes Kanter, Jimmer Fredette, and Kemba Walker land?
