NBA Draft 2012: Cavaliers Meet With Several Players At Combine

With so much talent in this year's draft class, there are a lot of different way the Cleveland Cavaliers could go with the No. 4 pick. The Cavaliers met with several of those players at the NBA combine on Thursday, and the Akron Beacon Journal broke it all down.

The hot rumor surrounding the pick is that Harrison Barnes will join the Cavaliers. Barnes is good friends with Kyrie Irving and signed with his agent.

The thought, though, is that if Michael Kidd-Gilchrist somehow falls to the No. 4 pick, Cleveland will not hesitate to grab him. For what it's worth, Kidd-Gilchrist spent a month training in Cleveland for the combine.

Other potential targets at No. 4 are Perry Jones III and Bradley Beal, who said, "I'd love to play with Kyrie Irving." Beal, thought to be just a shooting guard, was promoting himself as a combo guard at the combine.

Finally two names that are connected with Cleveland for their second pick at No. 24 are Doron Lamb and Tyshawn Taylor.
