Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Cleveland Cavaliers have narrowed their choice to centers Alex Len and Nerlens Noel.
The Cavaliers are choosing between Nerlens Noel and Alex Len at No. 1. If they pick Len, Noel could drop to Suns at No. 5.

While players like Otto Porter, Victor Oladipo, Ben McLemore and Anthony Bennett have all had their time in the sun as the rumor du jour for the Cavs, Len and Noel have been the most consistent two names mentioned for Cleveland since they won the draft lottery.
Conversely, ESPN’s Chad Ford thinks that the Cavaliers could end up trading whoever they pick at #1.
“The Cavs’ top option is to trade the No. 1 overall pick for a combination of a veteran plus a 2014 lottery pick,” writes Ford. “If they can pull that off, they’ll move the pick. If they can’t, they’ll keep attempting to move whoever they draft until all their options have been exercised. In other words, don’t assume that they are keeping who they draft at No. 1.”
