Fear The Sword And SB Nation Cleveland Talk Cavs' Fourth Pick In 2012 NBA Draft

Nothing like a little cross-network discussion to get the brain working on a Friday morning. We had the chance to talk with Conrad at Fear The Sword about the Cavs, the NBA Draft Lottery, the upcoming 2012 NBA Draft and some of the prospects in play.

This draft is a critical step in the post-LeBron rebuild. With Kyrie Irving already in place, the Cleveland Cavaliers will have a lot to think about.

Martin: Well let's talk a little bit about that. Say the Cavs can trade 4 & one of their second rounders for No. 6 & 11. Do you stand pat there? Go with BPA at six, then a guy like Lamb or Perry Jones at 11? Or do you get even more creative, keep No. 6, then package 11 & 24 for another top ten? Chris Grant likes to pull these kinds of moves, and he clearly grabbed all these picks to do something with them.

Conrad: You probably stay at 6 and 11, but who knows. We've officially entered complete speculation territory. I like Perry Jones III a lot later in the lottery. I like Tyler Zeller too. There's a lot of options back there, but I can't even pretend to know how that would play out.

Martin: I'm sure my head will spin over the next few weeks as I read everything and everything, but if I had to hope for an ideal, realistic scenario, it'd be Beal dropping to No. 4. He's a terrific shooter, he can rebound, he plays bigger than he is (which isn't that small, honestly), and he's a competitor. He'd complement Irving really well and would give the Cavs their other three picks to either make a
deal or snag SF/C.

It's going to be a fun next few weeks, that's for sure.
