Cavs Reveal Latest Plans Regarding Their 1st-Round Draft Pick

Paul George Le Bron James Kawhi Leonard

Other potential trade partners are not yet known, but Cleveland is competing with several teams that possess strong assets to offer.

"I just think you have to trade for a point guard who can make things easier for everybody on the court, including LeBron", Begley said during an appearance on "The Bull and Fox Show" on 92.3 The Fan.

Vardon also wrote that the Cavs won't know James' future plans when the draft tips off Thursday night, which isn't a surprise but is nonetheless significant.

Although he had his most efficient season as a Cavalier during his 59 regular season games, the 29-year-old struggled throughout much of the postseason, at least for his standards.

Young was college basketball's most electrifying player last season, averaging 27.4 points and 8.7 assists even while teams designed defenses specifically to stop him.

Cleveland also has the option of drafting a player and trading him after 30 days, like it did with Andrew Wiggins in 2014 to acquire Kevin Love. He does not want James, 33, to make the same mistake. "People have been saying that for the past four years". I knew that question would come, but I like to be here.

"Somebody told me a long time ago - they said your book is already set [before the later stages of your career]. Always wanted to win here". Will that player's rights be traded on Draft night?

LeBron is up against James Harden and Anthony Davis for NBA MVP.

"So, (it's) certainly not an easy position for Koby Altman and those guys to be in and I don't envy them". If he decides to leave, do they start to rebuild or try and compete for a playoff spot anyways?

According to Sports Illustrated's Jeremy Woo, the Hawks have made Dennis Schroder available in trade talks, but he could be hard to move because of his contract, as he has $46 million left on his current deal. The Cavs not only have to make a great pick from the players left available but they have to do so without knowing LeBron's intentions. Whether that would be through the draft on Thursday, my source tells me it is "likely but not definite".

Cleveland now possesses the No. 8 overall pick, but is rumored to have interest in Oklahoma guard Trae Young, Missouri forward Michael Porter Jr.
