Cavs legend Brad Daugherty will virtually represent team at 2020 NBA Draft Lottery.

The Cavs are back in action on September 14.

Non-Cavs Links

Raptors non-factor Oshae Brissett has left the Orlando Bubble in order to undergo a procedure to remove loose bodies from his right knee.

Gordon Hayward has been diagnosed with a Grade 3 right ankle sprain and he’s expected to miss at least the next four weeks of action.

The Milwaukee Bucks were upset in game one of their series against the Orlando Magic. The Bucks gave up 16 three-pointers as Mike Budenholzer can never learn his lesson.

Today’s Tankathon Sim

Hopefully Brad Daugherty brings this kind of fortune to the Cavaliers on Thursday night. In this scenario we would see LaMelo Ball to the Knicks, Anthony Edwards to the Timberwolves, James Wiseman to the Hornets, Isaac Okoro to the Hawks, and Onyeka Okongwu to the Warriors. Like all of these drops to fifth or sixth overall, it leaves Cleveland with the best available wing prospect and with Okoro off the board they elect to go with Devin Vassell.

Who knows, maybe the Cavs will try and trade back into the first to take Cassius Winston as well. Or they take Winston with their top pick. In that scenario, Chris Manning and myself are retiring from covering the team.
