With the Cavs winning the #1 pick last night in the NBA Draft Lottery, the Cavs management definitely have a lot to consider with the #1 pick? Should they draft Nerlens Noel? Otto Porter Jr.? Ben McLemore? Someone completely different? I am one of the people who believe that with no true #1 talent in the draft, the Cavaliers should look into trading the pick. With that being said, there is some different rumors floating around, so I decided to bring my own ideas into good trade the Cavs could make with the #1 pick. Keep in mind that these are my opinions, and you might see some assets that could be added and removed from each deal or just find some deals to be completely unrealistic.
Trade Idea #1
Cavaliers receive: DeMarcus Cousins, Pick #7
Trade Idea #2
Cavaliers receive: Nick Batum, Pick #10
Trail Blazers receive: Pick #1, Pick #19
Trade Idea #3
Orlando recieve: Alonzo Gee, #1 Pick
*Note: I would prefer Tobias Harris in this deal, but I felt that Harkless would be the one more likely to be dealt.
