NBA Mock Draft 2013: Chad Ford has Cavaliers taking Nerlens Noel and Reggie Bullock

USA TODAY Sports

The NBA Draft is a little more than a week away. Here's who Chad Ford thinks the Cavaliers will select.

The NBA Draft is Thursday (next Thursday). That means it's coming up pretty soon. ESPN's Chad Ford released the 50683rd version of his mock draft and I was anticipating this version quite a bit, actually. It doesn't have much change in it as far as the Cleveland Cavaliers are concerned, but that's a good thing. Recently, various people have been reporting that they think the Cavs are leaning towards selecting Alex Len with the first overall pick. If Chad Ford got on this bandwagon too, I'd really start to get concerned. However, Ford stuck with what he has been saying all along.

1. Cleveland Cavaliers select Nerlens Noel

Here's part of Ford's blurb about this selection:

"Sources in Cleveland strongly suggest that the Cavs have yet to make their decision. Anthony Bennett, Ben McLemore, Victor Oladipo, Otto Porter, Alex Len and Noel all have visits and/or workouts scheduled in Cleveland this week. Noel is scheduled to visit the team Thursday and has a chance to seal the deal as the No. 1 pick if he performs well."

19. Cleveland Cavaliers select Reggie Bullock

Here's what Ford says about the selection of Bullock:

"If the Cavs grab Noel at No. 1, look for them to add a small forward or shooter with the second first-round pick. They would love to get their hands on Karasev, but I'm told they believe Bullock wouldn't be a bad consolation prize. Bullock shot 44 percent from 3-point range this season and has the size to play both wing positions."
