NBA Draft Rumors: Cleveland Cavaliers seeking last minute workout with Dante Exum

Michael Dodge

The Cleveland Cavaliers suddenly have some interest in Dante Exum..

The Cavs are trying to score a workout with Australian guard Dante Exum, according to ESPN's Andy Katz.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are making an 11th-hour push to get Australian guard Dante Exum into Cleveland for an interview and a possible workout, a source with direct knowledge told ESPN.

Translation:

"We are totally considering drafting Exum first, so if you like him you should probably up your trade offer. No really guys, we mean it, we're gonna take him. Look, we're working him out, we really do want him. Seriously"

Basically this is a bunch of posturing, in my humble opinion.

Alternatively, if they were to trade down to 3 with Philly, having info on Exum would be a good idea. Or, if you were trying to look like you were trading down with Philly it would be a good idea too. It is generally thought that Dante Exum will not fall past the Los Angeles Lakers with the #7 pick, but could go as high as #2 or #3 to the Bucks or Sixers.

In the ESPN report, Katz notes that it's unlikely Exum would travel to Cleveland in order to workout for the Cavs at the last minute unless he was assured that it would be worth his while.

Also, the draft is Thursday.
