The 2011 NBA draft is quickly approaching. Despite the perceived weak class of prospects, anticipation and excitement is building.

They hold the No. 2 pick, also known as Derrick Williams, and they are looking to move it.
Cleveland has been rumored to be in discussions with the Timberwolves in an attempt to grab the pick. That would only add to the pre-draft excitement if they ended up owning the first two picks.
This class has been said to have only two elite prospects. This may be true. Still, it is a deeper class that can provide teams with value late in the first round.
