ESPN analyst Fran Fraschilla is up on the WWL’s site today with a look at some of the best potential fits for teams in the NBA Draft in a few weeks. To lead off his article, he shares some insight on how UCONN’s Jeremy Lamb could look in a Cavaliers uniform:
Put Lamb in the backcourt with defending rookie of the year Kyrie Irving and the Cavaliers have solved a major problem for the next decade. Lamb’s positional size, scoring ability and high ceiling make him a great fit for a rebuilding franchise.
While Lamb, who is younger than Irving, can certainly improve his strength, the notion that he is a soft player is foolish.
I talked earlier today with my brother Sam about how I’m warming up to the idea of Lamb, and Andrew wrote a lot about it yesterday as well. Fraschilla also theorizes Thomas Robinson being a great fit for Charlotte and MKG being good for Washington, which would also mean Bradley Beal would be available at No. 4. Fraschilla later said Jared Sullinger would be a good fit for Toronto at No. 8.
