The Cleveland Cavaliers are reportedly thinking about drafting Syracuse guard Dion Waiters with the No. 4 pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, via ESPN's Andy Katz's Twitter account.
Syracuse's Dion Waiters could be in play at No. 4 to Cleveland, according to those close to Waiters. That would shake up lottery a bit.— Andy Katz (@ESPNAndyKatz) June 28, 2012
Well, we haven't heard this one before. Up until late Wednesday night, the Cavaliers were most heavily linked to Kentucky's Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Florida's Bradley Beal, with Thomas Robinson of Kansas and Harrison Barnes of North Carolina considered outside possibilities.
Katz has not as of yet elaborated on what scenario would have to take place with picks No. 1-to-3 for Cleveland to go with Waiters.
The 2012 NBA Draft is Thursday night. Until then, there will be more rumors.
