Cavs Moving Down, Targeting Ross?
The Cavs are bringing in Washington wing Terrence Ross for a private workout on Wednesday. That’s odd for a couple of reasons. One, it’s highly doubtful that Ross is seriously in the mix at No. 4. Second, there’s no way he’ll be on the board when the Cavs pick again at No. 24.
What’s going on? I think the Cavs are still exploring moving up in the draft. But now it sounds like they’re also seriously looking at moving down a few spots if they can pick up additional assets. I’ve been told that’s likely in the 7-10 range, but it’s unclear what they could be getting back that would be better than just taking Kidd-Gilchrist, the small forward who sits at No. 2 on the Big Board behind Davis. As for Ross, the Cavs had better get a pick in the top 11 if they want him. If Tyler Zeller is off the board, I believe the Bucks are leaning toward taking Ross at No. 12.
