Cleveland Cavaliers Win Draft Lottery

Cleveland Cavaliers Win Draft Lottery

For the second time in three years, the Cleveland Cavaliers won the NBA Draft Lottery and will have the first pick in this year’s NBA Draft. The Draft will be on June 27, and Nerlens Noel, out of Kentucky, is expected to be the top pick even though he is recovering from a knee injury. 

If the Cavaliers draft Noel, they will have a solid nucleus–along with superstar Kyrie Irving–they can use to potentially lure LeBron James back to Cleveland in two years.
