This was something that came out late on Tuesday night and I'm honestly not sure what it means. The Cavaliers announced that they were bringing in Terrence Ross for a private workout on Wednesday, just one day before the draft. Obviously, Ross isn't going to be drafted with the fourth pick. There also doesn't seem to be much of a chance that Ross falls all the way down to the 24th pick.

So why are the Cavaliers working him out?

I have some ideas. First off, I'd like to say that I really do like Ross as a player. He's smooth, he's long, and he's a pretty good shooter. If the Cavaliers intend on drafting him, however, I would have to figure that a trade is in the works. Keep in mind that this is just speculation on my part and if you've got better ideas, let me know. Most draft experts expect Terrence Ross to be drafted in the 13-19 range. As you may have heard, the Houston Rockets have three picks within that range. They traded Chase Budinger for the 18th pick in the draft and already owned the 14th and 16th picks. The Rockets are known to want to swing a bigger deal for a star like Dwight Howard or maybe even Josh Smith. I suspect that they are trying to pry Anderson Varejao from the Cavaliers in order to make one of these larger deals. With those mid-teens draft picks being dangled in front of Cleveland's front office, they may feel the need to get a better look at the prospects in that range.

At this point, your guess is as good as mine.
