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.
Looks like Dwight Powell (45th pick) will be coming to Cleveland. #Cavs also taking on Brendan Haywood's $2 million contract.— Tom Withers (@twithersAP) June 27, 2014
Dwight Powell is headed to Cleveland, not the Hornets. An NBA source confirms a deal that will give the Hornets some cap relief in July.— Rick Bonnell (@rick_bonnell) June 27, 2014
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.
