    So with Kyrie Irving most likely being the #1 pick Thursday, who do you guys like at #4?

    Still not sure WTF they will do with pick 4...will they move up and get Williams? Move back and stockpile picks? Trade for a crappy salary to move up with the exception? Take some Euro dude named Sharunas who has 12 Euro clubs with his rights? Will be interesting...

    this is actually a pretty fair deal. the players are total retards if they won't consider anything but a soft cap like the current model.

    im still torn on what is the best move for the cavs for the future...irving is probably the safest bet here...if byron scott is our coach for the next however many years then iriving is the right choice since scott has proven he can coach up young PG's with talent...and on top of this he needs a true PG to run his princeton offense...but at the same time i really like williams and wouldnt be pissed if the cavs took him #1 then came back at pick #4 and took knight who should be available unless another team comes up to take pick #3 to take him...irving would go to minnesota who would then trade him since they have rubio...so if the cavs take irving #1 then im hoping they can get kanter or trade their #4 for a proven young player who has been in the league a few years that we can help build with for the future...i think sessions will be gone and im hoping we can somehow make a trade and also throw in our TPE...might be hard to do at this point tho with a future lockout looming...alot of options for the cavs and i am in Chris Grants camp so whatever moves he makes i will trust he is making the right move...regardless what i would like to see happen around the trade deadline next year is to part ways with Jamison, Baron Davis, Verajo and possibly hickson...jamison and davis are no brainers...verajo because he will only last about 2-3 more years with how he plays and hickson because he is inconsistent and we need to get as much possible for him and verajo now while we can

    One of the talking heads on fox sports radio was saying that the Cavs could move up to #2 if they were willing to part with Varejo. Seems unlikely to me. Also, I still wonder if Hickson is one of those guys that will get better every year and eventually be a star.

    i was thinking tristan thompson earlier but he is managed by lebrons agency...not sure if gilbert wants to deal with those assholes ever again...there WILL be a lockout so taking jonas would be awesome

    BayBuck Buckeyes are best

    Unless he's managed by Maverick Carter himself, I doubt that's much of a consideration. NBA contracts are pretty straight-forward (at least with the current CBA).
