I know its not a popular opinion, and most people want Kyrie Irving at 1 but I like Williams and Knight,
I dont see why Kyrie Irving is the clear cut number 1. He does seem like a safer pick than Brandon Knight, but Knight seems to have a higher ceiling. Knight is a better scorer, and during the second half of the season seemed to learn to be more of the pass first point gaurd. Hes not needed to start right away and could learn from Baron. He had a 4.3 gpa in highschool, and a 4.0 in college, so he should be smart enough to learn how to play point in the NBA. I also think Williams can be a dominent PF, and a decent SF. He can play a good post game, and would be one of the most athletic PFs in the league. He was never one to force shots in college, so he can pick and choose his shots playing PF and can shoot the 3 when needed too. He is not quick enough to cover the faster SFs in the league, but he could play there and have success, but would be a better PF. As much as I like HIckson, him coming of the bench as the 6th man, or a lineup with WIlliams, Hickson, Andy, in the front court could cause mismatches. I think Williams at 1 and Knight at 4 would be the best way for the cavs to go. If Knight goes 3, then we can still draft Val, or Kanter. As much as people say its a point gaurd league, the best teams are led by forwards. Durant, Lebron, Dirk. The Bulls couldnt last because Rose was their only threat. Deron Williams and Chris Pauls teams arent really huge threats either.
