Cavaliers reportedly looking for a trade
The Cleveland Cavaliers don’t appear to be content with the No. 4 pick in this month’s NBA Draft.
A report from HoopsWorld indicates the team is talking to Portland about trading picks No.4 and No. 24 to the Trail Blazers for picks No.6 and No. 11.
It seems like Portland is giving up a lot, but the team is reportedly in favor of Connecticut big man Andre Drummond.
If I were the Cavs, I would do this trade.
According to ESPN, Cleveland also reportedly offered all four draft picks to New Orleans for the top pick in the draft. Although Kentucky center Anthony Davis would be nice a Cavalier uniform, the Cavs shouldn’t do this deal. Thankfully the Hornets already reportedly turned the deal down.
FEELING A DRAFT – The Columbus Blue Jackets will hold a NHL Draft Party 6 p.m. June 22 at Nationwide Arena.
Admission is free.
The first 500 fans to enter will receive a free T-shirt, and free parking is available in the garage attached to Nationwide Arena.
In conjunction with the NBC Sports Network telecast shown on the video scoreboard, team broadcasters George Matthews and Bill Davidge, alongside Blue Jackets Radio Network host Mark Wyant, will anchor the radio broadcast live on ESPN 1460 starting at 7 p.m.
In addition, Jeff Rimer and Bob McElligott will contribute analysis and interviews direct from the Draft in Pittsburgh.
The festivities will be headlined by the appearances of James Wisniewski and Cam Atkinson who will be on hand to sign autographs and join kids for street hockey. Participating players will be named at a later date.
