It's draft day, there's stuff happening, there's nothing happening, there's so much nothing stuff happening and not happening. The Cleveland Cavaliers are a whirlwind of rumor insanity. They're both trying and not trying to trade out of the #1 pick, and the Sixers and Orlando Magic are seemingly the most involved there.
Sources: Cavs were calling around offering teams Orlando's picks at 4 & 12 for players last night. Interesting— Chad Ford (@chadfordinsider) June 26, 2014
Magic would take Jabari at 1 I'm told. But deal isn't done. Cavs were just gauging value of 4th & 12th pick. Sixers also upping offer for 1— Chad Ford (@chadfordinsider) June 26, 2014
If Jabari Parker goes #1, Milwaukee would take Andrew Wiggins at #2, so that's not a clear win for the Sixers getting AW either. It would seem that with the Sixers reluctant to trade the 10th pick, Orlando has the best current package to move up. If Arron Afflalo is involved as well, that's quite a haul.
UPDATED CAVS PREDICTION: 65% Wiggins, 20% trade, 15% Jabari.— Conrad Kaczmarek (@ConradKazNBA) June 26, 2014
There seems to be a growing consensus around the league that the Orlando Magic will be drafting No. 1 tonight when all is said and done.— Jake Fischer (@JakeLFischer) June 26, 2014
Meanwhile, they tried to work out Dante Exum last minute. To no avail. LOLCAVS.
Dante Exum has declined to fly to Cleveland for a workout today according to a source— Chad Ford (@chadfordinsider) June 26, 2014
Humans weren't meant to live with these nerves for this long. Happy prom night, everybody.
