Koby Altman Rumors

The Cavs will likely choose the player Houston doesn’t. While trading back continues to be mentioned as a possibility, Cleveland’s front office has lamented a lack of lottery luck over the past few seasons. This is the position the Cavs want to be in. The one they need to be in. They celebrated on lottery night and that joy has only increased throughout the pre-draft process, as they weigh their options at No. 3. Sources say general manager Koby Altman currently sees too much of a gap between Mobley/Green and the other prospects, which means it’s unlikely he would willingly drop down a few spots and choose from a lesser pool of prospects. Those trade calls started weeks ago. Altman’s listening. He has to. It’s his job. But it would take a “Godfather” offer, according to a source.
