Report: Cavaliers Offer Entire Draft For Anthony Davis

According to Chad Ford's draft blog today, the Cavaliers offered literally every draft pick they have this year for the #1 pick. The Cavaliers own the 4th, 24th, 33rd, and 34th picks in the draft. The New Orleans Hornets responded as you would expect.

Is Anthony Davis a lock for the No. 1 pick? Yes, and it's not even close. Forget about the fact that the Hornets are saying publicly that they are still considering their options. He's the guy.

You can also forget about them trading the No. 1 pick. Sources say the Cavs offered them No. 4, No. 24, No. 33 and No. 34 for No. 1. And sources said the Cavs got a firm and quick "No!"

I guess this just goes to show how disappointing it was to Cleveland when they didn't win the lottery.

It's pretty obvious that those picks wouldn't be enough to get it done, but I'm pretty happy that the Cavs at least tried. No truth to the rumor that they also offered Trent Richardson or Greg Little to sweeten the deal.
