2011 NBA Draft Update: Cleveland Cavaliers Select Justin Harper With the 32nd Pick

**UPDATE** The Cleveland Cavaliers have traded the rights to Justin Harper to the Orlando Magic for two future second round picks

***

The Cavaliers continue to add quality talent in this year’s draft, getting one of the best shooting big men in the nation near the top of the second round in Richmond forward Justin Harper.

Harper is a poor man’s Kevin Durant who can really stroke the ball and score seemingly at will and from distance. He is a better defender than he’s given credit, but the knock on him is that he lacks toughness.

This was a great pick by the Cavs, and Harper can play either the three or the four position, and will give them shooting off the bench.
