With our earlier pick, we grabbed an ELITE prospect who needs development time. We are going the same route here.
The way we look at it is we are getting a player at #24 who we think would be a mid-to-high lottery pick next year. We're not positive he'll pan out, but we cannot pass up that kind of value. We feel a small risk here could give us a HUGE reward. That's one way good teams become great.
This player comes with some health concerns, is young and underdeveloped and was inconsistent in his brief college career. However, 6'10 SFs who can create offense for themselves and have a 7'4" wingspan are - um - tough to find. We like having the opportunity to put one in our pocket.
The Cavaliers select Quincy Miller, SF, Baylor
This dazzling talent has a bright future.
