NBA Trade Rumors: Cleveland Cavaliers Still Prefer to Trade No. 1 Pick


The Cleveland Cavaliers sit at the top of the 2013 NBA Draft with the No. 1 overall pick, but there is still a lot of speculation about what direction the Cavs will go with the top pick. The team has been linked to a number of players and multiple potential trade partners, but there is nothing set in stone with the draft less than 10 hours away.

While Cleveland may struggle to find a trade partner, they still prefer to move the pick if they can.

From Chad Ford of ESPN:

If Cleveland ends up hanging on to the pick, the three names being linked to the team are big men Nerlens Noel (Kentucky) and Alex Len (Maryland), along with Indiana guard Victor Oladipo.

For what it’s worth, Oladipo is reportedly a favorite of Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert.
