With the start of the 2012 NBA Draft drawing closer, ESPN.com's Chris Broussard is reporting that the Cleveland Cavaliers could possibly be making a play for Charlotte's No. 2 overall pick:
sources: Charlotte talking with Cavs and Rockets about trading #2 pick. not sure if teams making separate offers or if it's a 3-way trade.— Chris Broussard (@Chris_Broussard) June 28, 2012
sources: Cavs offering 4, 24 and 33 picks for Charlotte's 2 and 31 picks— Chris Broussard (@Chris_Broussard) June 28, 2012
With the Rockets already showing their willingness to deal in recent days, it's hardly surprising that Houston would be involved in yet another player/pick swap. The Cavaliers, however, sit in an interesting position at the No. 4 slot, mainly because they could end up benefiting from staying put and grabbing the best player available.
