Though the official NBA Draft is over two months away and we still need the lottery to be set, NBADraft.net has updated their two-round mock and have the Cavaliers bolstering their center position with their two first-round selections.
Opting to pass on wing players like UNC’s Harrison Barnes and Florida’s Bradley Beal, the mock has Chris Grant’s Cavaliers selecting Connecticut’s Andre Drummond, the draft’s top-rated center. The 6-foot-11-inch, 270-pound Drummond failed to live up to some expectations and averaged 10.0 points, 7.6 rebounds and 2.7 blocks per game. He moves well on his feet and can dominate at times.
Perhaps showing just how weak the Cavaliers’ center position may be, the NBADraft.net mock has the Wine and Gold selecting another big man with the 26th-overall pick, Vanderbilt’s Festus Ezeli.
Though it will be very surprising if Chris Grant actually uses all four of his draft selections in 2012, the mock has the Cavalier selecting a pair of small forwards in Michigan State’s Draymond Green (6-feet-6-inches, 225 pounds) and Syracuse’s Kris Joseph (6-7, 210) with the 33rd- and 34th-overall selections.
