Cleveland Takes Irving With First Pick

The Cleveland Cavaliers officially made the draft pick most expected they would once they got the first pick in the lottery.

Duke’s Kyrie Irving is now a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Cavaliers were the only team Irving worked out for, and now the Cavs have a point guard that makes Baron Davis expendable.

The Minnesota Timberwolves are now next at number two. Derrick Willaims is expected to go next to the Wolves, but Minnesota has looked to trade the pick in the past few weeks. They could also make the surprising pick of taking Enes Kanter.
