Cleveland Cavaliers trade for 45th pick, select Dwight Powell

The Cleveland Cavaliers have moved back into the 2nd round to select Dwight Powell, a big man from Stanford. He's listed at 6'11" and 234 pounds and averaged 14.0 points and 6.9 rebounds last year for the Cardinal.

In order to move back into the 2nd round and grab Powell, the Cavs will take on Brendan Haywood's contract and provide the Charlotte Hornets with some cap relief.

Dwight Powell is also from Canada, so the Cavs now have FOUR Canadians on their team. That's kind of bananas.
