Cavs to Consider Moving Up in Draft?
For now, (Chris) Grant is pleased they didn’t fall to No. 6, the lowest the team could have dropped in the lottery.
“I feel great about where we are,” Grant said. “We get a chance to add another really good, young player to our roster, so it’s a good day. We feel good about it, we’re excited about the prospects.”
There’s no point in fretting about what might have been. The Cavaliers would have gotten the No. 1 pick had they lost a coin toss with New Orleans at the end of the season.
“It’s not something you can control,” Grant said. “We felt really good about where we were. And if we were fortunate enough to move up, great. … We’re in a good spot. We’re in a really good spot.”
Being content to stay at No. 4 pick is another matter. Grant wouldn’t hint, either, at whether the Cavaliers are interested in trading up.
“I don’t know if we know the answer to that yet,” Grant said. “One thing we’ve talked about a lot with our ownership group is we like being aggressive. We’ll look at a lot of different options once we get everyone in here, but I presume we’ll be pretty active.”
