HoopsHype Workouts rumors

By the time this week concludes, the Cavaliers should have a clear plan regarding the No. 1 pick in the NBA Draft. All five candidates under consideration will visit Cleveland Clinic Courts this week, including Kentucky’s Nerlens Noel today. Most mock drafts around the country project the Cavs to select Noel, but sources within the organization seem cool on him. Noel played in just 24 games because of a left knee injury his freshman year and his offensive skills are limited. He has spent time during his rehab working on his shooting. Akron Beacon Journal

Without a summer league and training camp, that will limit his impact and expectations as a rookie. But that isn’t what concerns the Cavs, a league source said, despite owner Dan Gilbert’s claims that the team is expected to compete for a playoff spot next season. The Cavs are still viewing this offseason with a long-term lens, one league source said, and won’t overreact in free agency or the draft based strictly on a desire to make the playoffs this season.
