Report: Cleveland Cavaliers Would Select Alex Len First if 2013 NBA Draft Was Today

With just a few days until the 2013 NBA Draft, smoke is beginning to fill the air. Teams are trying to throw curveballs to opposing franchises and few have done so more than the Cleveland Cavaliers who’ve continually shrugged their shoulders pertaining to their first overall selection.

Earlier today, it was reported by Bob Finnan via our own Josh Hill that the Cavaliers may select Maryland’s Alex Len with the first overall pick and now Sheriden Hoops is reporting that if the draft was held today, he would clearly be the pick.

Per Sheriden Hoops:

You can bet your bottom dollar on this: If the draft were held today, the Cavaliers would select Alex Len with the top pick. The Cavs believe he is the best fit long-term alongside Kyrie Irving.

Len has reportedly been in play as the top overall pick for weeks, though, few took it seriously as most considered it a smokescreen. It certainly may still be one, but with multiple sources close to the Cavaliers now suggesting Len could be the number one pick, it might need to be taken with a bit more merit.
