08:09 AM ET 05.31 | At the very least, the Cavs didn't slip to sixth in the draft lottery, which was where they could have fallen. "It's not something you can control," [Chris 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."

What do they have to give up to trade up?

4 picks in the first 35 is a good start!

Stay at #4. 2-12 are all the same.

Lots, about 7 first round picks in the next 3 years and then a guy like Verajao could bring lots of talent. Casspi for Howard!!!

Should have moved on that faster... Otis Smith would have likely given Howard up for Jamison, unfortunately for you the Magic SHOULD hire a GM with half a brain this time...

They had the 4th pick last year too..how'd that work out?

Easy choice...stay where you are and draft Harrison Barnes.

It worked out well for them. Tristan Thompson played better than most people think.

It just depends on who they're targeting specifically and if that player will be there. Regardless, they're going to get a good pick at #4, this draft is deep.
