The Cavaliers have been rumored to be feeling out the Hornets for a trade at the number ten spot. New Orleans was insisting that any deal made would have to include the contracts of Trevor Ariza and Emeka Okafor.
That deal is out of the question now.
The Hornets traded Okafor and Ariza to the Washington Wizards for Rashard Lewis and the 46th pick in the draft.
It could also signal that the Wizards are ready to use the third pick on Florida G Bradley Beal. This is good or bad news depending on who you would rather see the Cavaliers get at four. It could mean that Michael Kidd-Gilchrist will fall to four. It could also mean the top three are Davis, Kidd-Gilchrist and Beal.
