Rumors are swirling that the San Antonio Spurs are shopping Guard Tony Parker for a lottery pick in tomorrows NBA draft. The Cleveland Cavaliers haven't been mentioned, but with two lottery picks it is certainly worth discussing. He is only 29 years old and would instantly make the Cavs an attractive place to play for other free agents and rookies.
He is a proven all-star caliber player and would be worth the first or fourth pick in my opinion, if that is what it would take to do it.
If the Cavs traded the first overall pick to the Spurs for Tony Parker, they could draft foward Enes Kanter with the 4th selection.
This is a long shot, but not as much as you may think. As long as Tony Parker would be willing to give it a few years, there would be pieces in place to build a contender.
The following would be a potential starting lineup for the Cleveland Cavaliers.
PG - Tony Parker
PF - JJ Hickson
SG - Anthony Parker
C - Anderson Varejao
SF - Christian Eyenga
After some time, the rookies could work into the fold. With a strong draft next year, the sky is the limit for the Cavaliers.
Have faith Cavs fans, the future is bright.
