According to Joe Kotoch of Pro Basketball Draft, the Cavs are scheduledto workout Jared Sullinger and Fab Melo this upcoming week. Sullinger has been "red flagged" over issues with his back. Sullinger was once considered a lottery pick but a disappointing sophomore season with the Ohio State Buckeyes and health concerns have hurt his draft stock significantly. The fact that he is working out for the Cavs and is clearly no longer a lottery pick is evidence that he is hoping to be picked at the 24th slot.
A source close to the situation has stated that Sullinger hoped that the Cavs didn't select him. This was not on the record, but my source overheard these comments first hand. Either Jared Sullinger has been humbled a few notches or he did not sincerely mean it when he made those comments.
Jared Sullinger averaged 17.6 PPG and 9.3 RPG in his second year with the Buckeyes. Although these are decent per game statistics, Sullinger's field goal percentage dropped from 54.1% to 51.9% in a year. More concerning is the fact that he battled back spasms and they seemingly are still a concern for general managers across the league.
Had he declared for the draft in 2011, he would have probably been selected high in the lottery. By foregoing the NBA draft, Sullinger's pro basketball career is no longer a sure thing.
In other news, Harrison Barnes has cancelled his workout with the Sacramento Kings. Bradley Beal also decided to skip working out for any teams slated lower than fourth. Either both players feel confident that they will be selected in the top four or they do not want to jeopardize their careers playing in a toxic atmosphere that the Sacramento Kings foster.
Fab Melo averaged 7.8 PPG, 5.8 RPG and 2.9 BPG for Syracuse in 2011-2012. Melo does not necessarily fit what the Cavs should be attempting to do with their front court, but he is 7 feet tall and is a solid defender. Some concerns with Melo are his offense and character. Melo was suspended throughout the entire NCAA tournament for academic issues. The fact that he is so big and can really defend makes him an intriguing prospect for the Cavs, but he does not fit into the "high character" mold that Chris Grant is fixated upon.
