2011 NBA Draft: Cavaliers Looking To Acquire Another First-Round Pick

The Cleveland Cavaliers are apparently not satisfied with having the first and fourth overall picks in the 2011 NBA Draft, and are trying to obtain another first-rounder, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports. Citing "sources," the Cavs might be offering both of their second-round picks (nos. 32 and 54 overall) and cash to teams with picks "in the 20's" in hopes of moving up. From this information, one can infer the Cavs covet a prospect sure to go in the late first-round who won't fall to them at no. 32.

Teams within that range perhaps willing to move their picks include the Minnesota Timberwolves (no. 20), Houston Rockets (no. 23, though they'll reportedly trade that pick to the Milwaukee Bucks if certain conditions are met), Boston Celtics (no. 25), and Chicago Bulls (nos. 28 and 30).

The Draft takes place Thursday at 7 PM, with ESPN carrying the national telecast. Stay tuned to this StoryStream for Cavs Draft updates.
