This morning, ESPN published a report from Chad Ford and Jeff Goodman that indicated the Cavaliers front office had a different view of how to use the first overall pick than Dan Gilbert. The front office reportedly is leaning towards Jabari Parker, while ownership is smitten with Andrew Wiggins.
This would be an interesting and somewhat concerning development. Who ultimately would make the call here?
Now, I have no idea how much stock to place in any of this. Ford and Goodman trust their sources enough to run the story. Dan Gilbert, however, wasn't going to let the report stand on it's own:
I don't have a real strong take on this. If the leaks are coming from within the organization as a way to pressure Gilbert into letting the front office make its choice, well, that's not exactly encouraging. I thought it was interesting that the front office was characterized as having the "majority" convinced that Parker is the right choice, including David Griffin who you would think makes the call.
There have been reports that Griffin had decided on Embiid, and now wants Parker. Will he be the pick tomorrow?
