    Just out of curiosity. How does picking up players from the waiver wire work? Is it first come first serve? Is it based off of draft slot getting first choice? Wasn't sure how this works. Peace!!!

  4. tcmd - Positional Group Draft Board

    Picking by positional group as opposed to individual player is soooo different. You can have a stud at one position but his backups are a bunch of scrubs. Then, factoring in the salary cap influences how you want to pick based on if a position group has a lot of high priced players. With the 1st pick overall, I'm just hoping I don't mess up. Peace!!!

    It's unfortunate that Cleveland isn't a Free Agent destination spot. If It was, I can guarantee we could have cleared enough cap space with all of the 1 year contracts on the roster & we would have found someone to trade for Love to sign at least 2 max contracts. Peace!!!

    It's too bad the Cavaliers couldn't have moved up from 26 to pick Nassir Little ahead of Portland. I'm hoping Windler is a Kyle Korver clone at least. Peace!!!

    I like what Griffin is doing with the Pelicans. They could give some teams some fits next year. I'll say that if Porter Jr. Is available with pick 17 they should pick him. Peace!!!

    Garland was best player available so to speak despite what Bilas had on hes board. I'm ok with the pick. Cavaliers need talent & he has talent. Now if only we could get Jaxson Hayes I'd be very happy. Peace!!!

    @ny92mike I'm down for joining this mock. I'll be Cleveland if that's ok. The new team name & logo will be the Cleveland Spiders. Peace!!!

    @ny92mike I'm always interested in mock drafts but I guess I'm still a little confused by the draft itself I guess. So instead of drafting individual players, we are picking entire position groups from a team? So as an example, when my pick is up & I wanted to pick the Miami Dolphins defensive line, all of the Miami Dolphins defensive lineman would be on my team salary & all? Is that correct or am I totally off? Peace!!!

    With the way that the NBA draft lottery is set up now, tanking is not even a given now in regards to getting a top 3 pick as we witnessed this year. It still irritates me that we didn't even get into the top 3. Instead of us arguing over Morant or Barrett, we're arguing over which 2nd tier player would be best for the Cavaliers. The only good thing is that the draft, just like in any other sport can be unpredictable. There are always gems scattered across the entire draft, all we can do is hope the Cavaliers can find them. Peace!!!

    Mock Draft. Caveat: The players in my mock are purely Boom or Bust players. I've said in the past that I feel the Warriors will continue to be a dominant team (even without Durant) so I'm just looking at this as a long term strategy. Trades: *Atlanta covets Jarrett Culver badly so they trade picks #8, #10, and pick #35 in the second round for pick #5. *Charlotte Hornets trade Marvin Williams and the #12 pick in the 1st round for J.R Smith for cap relief purposes. Picks: #8 - Cam Reddish (F/G) - Arguably the most polarizing player in the draft. The pick is made based off of pure potential. #10 - Nassir Little (SF) - Athletic forward who is a very active defender. #12 - Jaxson Hayes (C) - Raw center who could become a defensive stud. #26 - Luka Samanic (PF) - Versatile forward who can play inside and out. #35 - Jalen Lecque (PG) - Athletic point guard who can become something special if he can develop a mid range jumpshot. I'm hoping that with the coaching staff we have in place and the knowledge that we will not be title contenders very soon gives the Cavaliers the luxury of being patient with players like the ones above. It is highly unlikely that the Cavaliers (or any other team for that matter) would want 5 rookies on their roster but I see this as an opportunity for the Cavaliers to think outside of the box and for the future. Depth Chart: PG - Collin Sexton / Matthew Dellavedova / Brandon Knight / Jalen Lecque* SG - Jordan Clarkson / Cam Reddish* / SF - Cedi Osman / Nik Stauskas / Nassir Little* PF - Kevin Love / Larry Nance / Luka Samanic* C - Tristan Thompson / Ante Zizic / Jaxson Hayes* Peace!!!

    I'm guessing your too young to have ever seen Michael Jordan play when he was active? LeBron will always be second to Jordan in my eyes. Peace!!!

    Kyrie Irving was never good at getting assists to teammates and it used to annoy me to no end but didn't deter him from becoming a great player. In no way am I saying Sexton is the next Kyrie but if Sexton can improve on all other facets of his game and not be a great passer, I believe I can live with it. Peace!!!
