Jared Sullinger To Work Out For Cavs Friday

On Friday, former Ohio State product Jared Sullinger is expected to workout for the Cleveland Cavaliers in anticipation of the 2012 NBA Draft, which is set to be held on June 28.

Sullinger was initially projected as a lottery selection before being medically red flagged by NBA doctors who have discovered an issue with the player's back that potentially could shorten his career and will likely cause him to free-fall in next week's draft.

Via The Morning Journal:

"He probably won't be drafted earlier than No. 12," said Joe Kotoch of NBAdraftinsider.com. "Houston has two picks. The Rockets might take a shot at this guy (at Nos. 14 and 16). Otherwise, I could see Minnesota (No. 18) or Boston (Nos. 21 and 22)."

If Sullinger does fall in the draft, he potentially could be available at the No. 24 selection, which the Cavs currently own.
