The Cavs came into the 2014 NBA Draft Lottery with just a 1.7% chance of winning the first overall pick and an overwhelming chance to stay in their slotted place and receive the 9th overall pick. But David Griffin is apparently a magical sorcerer and the Cavs won the lottery anyway.
This means that the Cavs now have a chance to draft one of the top prospects such as Andrew Wiggins, Joel Embiid, or Jabari Parker.
There also seems to be a pretty good chance that the Cavs look to trade their first round pick this year. It's David Griffin's first year as general manager and Cleveland already has a very young team. They might be better off trading the pick for a veteran to add to the current team. If that's the route that they decide to go, the first pick should have considerable value throughout the league.
Here's the complete draft order of the 2014 lottery:
1. CLEVELAND CAVALIERS
5. Utah Jazz
9. Charlotte Hornets
10. Philadelphia 76ers (via New Orleans Pelicans)
11. Denver Nuggets
12. Orlando Magic (via Denver Nuggets)
14. Phoenix Suns
