The draft lottery has been great to the Cleveland Cavaliers -- they got LeBron James out of it one year, Kyrie Irving in another, and now they've got the No. 1 pick in this year's draft. There's no true standout star from this class (although a healthy Nerlens Noel might qualify), leading to speculation that the Cavs might end up trading the pick -- a move that hasn't been made in 20 years. The Cavs have three other picks in this draft and a lot of cap space, but the lure of picking first might be too strong for them to resist, given how well it's worked for them in the past.
There's no LeBron James in this draft, but the available players all seem solid and professional -- not lightning in a bottle, exactly, but better than some No. 1 picks we could name.
Nerlens Noel is currently rehabbing, but if he ends up recovering fully, he and Kyrie Irving could form the core of a pretty good team.
A reasonable system?
The Magic didn't get the first pick despite having the worst record in the league. The top pick hasn't gone to the worst team since 2004 -- which, oddly enough, just happened to be the Magic.
