Much was made of the scheduled workout on Saturday between Bradley Beal and Harrison Barnes in front of Cavaliers executives. As has been mentioned many times, it is uncommon for two top prospects to compete against each other in front of a team that has a high draft selection. Little should be made of the workout being that Beal is a shooting guard and Barnes is a small forward, but there are rumblings that the Cavs brass walked away from that workout being more impressed with Bradley Beal.
The draft is only in ten days. The team should start getting an idea of what their draft board looks like sooner than later. There have been reports that Harrison Barnes was definitely The Guy and a report from nine days later stating that Bradley Beal had "the edge" in the workout. Not to be outdone, rumblings were rampant from today that the Cavs are intrigued by Andre Drummond and would consider taking him with their pick. Joe Kotoch of ProBasketballDraft.com brought up the good point that Chris Grant has a long history of selecting players who have high athletic upside over the safe picks. Chris Grant had a lot to do with the JJ Hickson, Christian Eyenga and Tristan Thompson selections. Considering that two of those players did not pan out and are no longer with the team, one would hope that Grant would take a more conservative route.
Andre Drummond is scheduled to work out in Cleveland later this week. Little should be made of which players schedule workouts where because every single team with a high pick should be expected to do more than their fair share of their due diligence. To have the fourth pick and not work out Andre Drummond, even if the odds of selecting him are slim, would not make sense.
One last note is that the Cavs have an incredible amount of holes on the roster, but that does not mean that teambuilding should not be considered. There are two camps when building a team; those who want the best player available and those who worry about fit. The Cavs are not in any situation to be worrying about fit, but they need to go after players with their lottery picks that will complement each other. It does not take a scout to point out that a team with Andre Drummond, Tristan Thompson and Anderson Varejao would not have the best floor spacing.
