I'm on the record as saying I want the Cavaliers to simply select whoever is available at 4 from the group of players listed in the title. I'll probably even release the order in which I want the three on the podcast that we record before the draft but for now we're keeping it a three-way tie just for the suspense.

Lately though, rumors of Harrison Barnes and Andre Drummond crashing the party of those players have been all over the place. I don't buy them.

Assuming the draft goes the way I think it will, I'm interested to see who the masses at Fear the Sword want the most between these prospects. Even though the Cavaliers won't be able to select between these players it's certainly possibly that the one we want falls to 4.

While you may rate Drummond or Barnes higher than a couple of these guys, I personally don't think the Cavaliers would select either over Beal, Kidd-Gilchrist or Robinson.

Take a look after the jump at what I THINK is going to happen based on pure speculation that I've come across on the internet.

2. Charlotte - Thomas Robinson

3. Washington - Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

4. Cleveland - Bradley Beal

I encourage you to vote in the poll and to let me know who you most want to fall between the three players I have listed to the fourth overall pick.
