2011 NBA Mock Draft: Should the Cavaliers Take Kyrie Irving or Derrick Williams?

April 6th, 2011 by Nicholas Goss Leave a reply »
Derrick Williams and Kyrie Irving are franchise players in what has been labelled a weak NBA Draft pool by league scouts and general managers.

The Cleveland Cavaliers will have the best chance to secure the top overall pick in the draft lottery this May, after making the playoffs the last several seasons with LeBron James.

Since LeBron took his talents to the Miami Heat, Cleveland has struggled, and needs help in every area.

With many NBA teams losing money, several teams may choose popularity over talent when making their selection.

BYU star Jimmer Fredette may not be the best guard in the draft, but he will sell tickets and help generate more revenue with jersey sales.

Even though this draft is said to be weaker than in year's past, it may be the most important draft in a long time for many teams looking to start the new CBA era on the right foot.
