Here are your daily Cavs news and notes for Feb. 13, 2019. Direct your comments/concerns below or to christopherwmanning@gmail.com. Now, let us get into it.

Take of the day

The Cavs are at the All-Star break now with one of the worst three records in the NBA and a rough season overall. There have been high moments, sure, but a lot of bad and a lot frustrating games. This has not been a fun season.

But, in my opinion, we are heading towards what should be the fun part. Kevin Love is back! Tristan Thompson should be back soon. Larry Nance Jr. has been awesome of late. Both Collin Sexton and Cedi Osman have shown flashes this season. So has Ante Zizic and the Cavs have a number of players they are taking fliers on that should be interesting to watch for the next 20-plus games. And it’s full-on draft season at this point — it’s not too early to do deep dives into any and all prospects that interest you.

So. congratulations on making this far. Now enjoy the rest of it.

Draft watch

As of today, the Cavs have the third-worst record in the NBA. They have a 52.1 percent chance of landing a top-four pick and a 14 percent chance of landing the No. 1 overall pick. They could pick as low as No. 7 overall.

Today’s Tankathon sim yielded the Cavs the third overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft. The Cavs have a 12.7 percent chance of landing that pick:
