Much like 2013, I expect there will be several big surprises in the top 4 because there is just no one in this draft that seems developed enough to have a great sense of what they will be at the next level.Fedor adds Patrick Williams, LaMelo Ball, and Anthony Edwards to the private workout list.
Most likely to be gone, in no particular order is Edwards, Ball, Avidja, & Wiseman. That would leave the Cavs to choose from among Toppin, Okongwu, or Okoro.Just listened to Fedor's latest podcast - not much there that he hasn't put in his columns. He did say the front office has directed the coaching staff to pay special attention to five players on the Cavs' "short list"; Toppin, Okongwu, Avdija, Wiseman, and Okoro. They don't expect Edwards or Ball to be there and Fedor added there's a growing belief around the league that Wiseman won't last past #3.
So if Ball, Edwards and Wiseman all go in the top four that means the Cavs will have their choice of three of the remaining four: Toppin, Okongwu, Avdija, and Okoro assuming one of them also goes in the top four.
I still am in favor of making a package with the#5 pick. There are no impact players available at 5. Of the players mentioned, Avdija has the most interest to me, and even he will most likely be gone.
Even if we do get Avdija, it would probably mean less playing time for Windler, who I am dying to see play.
