Cavs Draft Rumors: Blazers Discussing Trade With Cleveland, According To Report

With the 2012 NBA Draft a little more than two weeks away, the rumors are flying as teams try to jostle for position and decipher the tea leaves. One rumor that surfaced over the weekend after the conclusion of the pre-draft combine in Chicago involves the Cavaliers swapping picks with the Portland Trail Blazers.
