Running Time: 38:11


1Q: Cavs Make Bennett the top pick

  • Tony Bennett? No, not that one. Anthony Bennett is the #1 pick.

  • No one saw this coming. Chris Grant and the org can keep secrets pretty well.

  • Nerlens Noel’s injury and rumored concerns about the crowd he hangs around with saw him slide out of the top 5. Even New Orleans ended up trading him to Philly (where they are desperate because Andrew Bynum didn’t play at all last year).

  • Bennett is a good shooter and rebounder. Mike Brown loves him some defense and he’ll make this guy better. But he is another scoring threat which we needed badly.

  • Still haven’t addressed Center position. Maybe a trade or free agent?

 

2Q: Cavs Moves at the other spots

  • other picks:

    • #19: Small Forward Sergey Karasev (Russia)

    • #31: Guard Allen Crabbe (California) traded to Portland for two future 2nd rd picks

    • #33: Guard Carrick Felix (Arizona St) 6’6 named to All Pac10 defensive team. also shot 37% from 3pt range (not bad)

  • free agency rumors

    • Andrew Bynum C (Phi)

    • sat out the whole year last yr after signing with Philly.

    • if healthy, he’s a huge upgrade. if pouting or injured, then move on.
