Not everyone says Cavs should take Irving

5

Wishful, selective mock draft posting: "1. Cavs - Derrick Williams, PF, Arizona With the luxury of having two of the top four picks, the Cavs have an opportunity to go a couple of different routes. Kyrie Irving could go here, but there isn't much of a drop off between him and Brandon Knight if they wanted to grab their point guard at pick No. 4. 2. Timberwolves - Kyrie Irving, PG, Duke" AND from http://cleveland.sbnation.com/cleveland-cavaliers/2011/5/18/2177468/latest-sb-nation-2011-nba-mock-draft-has-cavs-taking-kyrie-irving "If I am a Cavs fan, I’m not jumping for joy at the selection of Kyrie Irving. Even though Irving is a top of the line point guard prospect, Byron Scott is a top of the line point guard coach, and I think the Cavs could get much more bang for their buck if they were to take Derrick Williams with the first pick, then Brandon Knight...[M]y thought process all along has been to take Williams and the best PG available with their next pick. They have a rare opportunity here, and they need too look at the board and judge what TWO players will finish with the most upside, not which player will have the most upside with the top choice and then hope the next best guy falls to them at four overall."
