The Cleveland Cavaliers had a 1.7% chance of winning the NBA Draft Lottery and then they won it anyway. Now, David Griffin and Co. will have the opportunity to select first at the 2014 NBA Draft and take any prospect that they want. Most people think the choice will come down to Andrew Wiggins, Joel Embiid, or Jabari Parker.
Shortly after the lottery, the mock drafters started mock drafting. Here's what the most reputable mock drafts have the Cavaliers doing with the first overall pick.
According to Draft Express' first mock draft, the Cavs will select Andrew Wiggins.
Chad Ford hasn't published his mock draft yet, but he tweeted that he thinks the Cavs will take Wiggins with the top pick.
Our new Mock is my faithful editors hands. Think Andrew Wiggins is odds on favorite to go No. 1 to Cavs— Chad Ford (@chadfordinsider) May 21, 2014
Ricky O'Donnell writes that the Cavs will use the first pick to get their big man of the future in Joel Embiid.
Truthfully, I never considered the Cavs winning the lottery...but now that it actually happened, I think they have to take Wiggins. His ceiling is ridiculous. His athleticism is breathtaking. He should fit pretty perfectly with Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters. Let's make this happen, David Griffin.
Who do you think the Cavs should select?
