CLEVELAND — The Cavaliers have had plenty of practice picking first in the NBA draft. That doesn't mean they've gotten better at it.
For the second straight year, third time in four years and fourth time since 2003 — when they selected LeBron James — the Cavs own the No. 1 pick. On Thursday night, the Cavs, who only chose their new coach last week, will once again be the first team on the clock.
They've been lucky. Now, they need to be good.
Cleveland is expected to take Duke forward Jabari Parker or Kansas forward Andrew Wiggins, considered a pair of can't-miss prospects who could help the Cavs return to respectability. Either of them could possibly make Cleveland's roster more appealing to James, who opted out of his Miami Heat contract.
