11:01 AM ET 06.23 | If the Cavs draft a big man, it will be Maryland center Alex Len. He's 7-1, 255 pounds and looks and moves like an NBA center. He's 21, but has a stress fracture in his foot. Maybe he'll be fine, but big men with stress fractures in their feet are a worry. Cavs fans remember the ordeal of Zydrunas Ilgauskas.

very interesting article i read the other day on ESPN- broke the draft down itno tiers-

said there were

0 tier 1 guys- a tier one guy is a for sure all star- such as a LeBron, Griffen, etc. coming out

0 tier 2 guys- guys that are projected All Stars- some previous ones are Kyrie, Derrick Williams, Bradley Beal, MKG

6 tier 3 guys- guys that could make an all star team during their career- Bennett, Noel, Len, Porter, Oladipo,McleMmore

6 tier 4 guys- Zeller, Pope, Burke, McCollum, Williams, Adams, ----

26 tier 5 guys-----tons of them- the most a the evaluator said he has ever seen in a draft- and that this draft while is very weak at the top is extremely deep

As long as it's not Len or Noel I think the Cavs will do fine.
