07:16 AM ET 06.26 | Cleveland, you are on the clock. [The Cavaliers] are down to a final list of three players for the No. 1 pick and hope to make a decision by Thursday morning, according to a source. The list is expected to include Alex Len, Nerlens Noel and either Otto Porter or Ben McLemore. ... But the Cavs are also exploring trading the top pick since they're not in love with any one player who in a "normal" year wouldn't be a top pick. According to a source, Cleveland offered the No. 1 pick, Tristan Thompson and Dion Waiters to try and land Minnesota's Kevin Love. But new Timberwolves president Flip Saunders won't move Love. ... Elsewhere, a source said Oklahoma City was interested in packaging its two first-round picks (Nos. 12 and 29) and Kendrick Perkins for a top-five pick. ... Meanwhile, Dallas is openly shopping its No. 13 pick.

This draft sucks.

Cleveland is so desperate, but that trade has already been DENIED! Moving on......

Cavs think they can trick some dumb GM to trade their superstar for a #1 pick that nobody wants. They're stuck w/ that overpaid #1 pick...

The Cavs are like the jilted gf. They had LBJ (the man of their dreams) and lost him. Ever since they've been scrambling to replace the one that got away, all the while hoping they can make themselves more attractive so that he'll someday return. I actually feel bad for them.

I can appreciate the effort to try and move the pickbut they likely need to maybe not go for the moon.I'd look to maybe boston and jeff green?they have plenty of picks, green isn't a build around guy for boston, and boston s in rebuild mode and it would accelerate the processGreen could slide into that #2/3 role in cleveland behind KI

Why would Boston get rid of Green for an unproven player?

Actually not a bad scenario... Green needs to be unleashed as he showed at times last year he can be the man...
