Per Chris Sheridan...
"After talking to numerous sources, I say with 100 percent confidence that the Cavs will draft Len if they do not trade the pick."
- A lot of people claim to hear a lot of things from a lot of sources, but this is the first thing i've heard that said anything with that level of certainty.
- Everyone has been talking about how the cavs have been extremely secretive about their thinking and their plans. If that's true, then where is this coming from?
- I hope this is not true. For all of this purported offensive polish, Len averaged less than 2ppg more then Noel. Most of the advanced metrics, which the cavs reportedly value highly, have Noel head and shoulders above Len.
- Ultimately, i can buy into Len being more offensively skilled then Noel, but it seems like Noel's offensive shortcomings are more than offset by his defensive strengths. Therefore, i just don't see how Len is a better fit as the cavs look to tighten up their defense.
