With the 19th pick in the 2013 NBA Draft the Cleveland Cavaliers select Sergey Karasev the Small Forward from Russia. The Cavs select the second best shooter in the draft. Karasev is currently still playing and will fly out of New York to go back and play. The Cavs have a need for a shooter with Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters as slasher with some shooting.
The Cavs earlier selected Anthony Bennett who can play some small forward but is a scoring power forward. Cleveland shows some expectations for Tyler Zeller as the big man of the future. While Zeller is not a rim protector but could play some solid defense with Mike Brown. Look forward to a evaluation of Karasev soon on FoS.
The Cavs still have the 31 and 33 picks in the draft. Many of the picks at the end of the 1st round have been rumored to want to get out of the pick and their guaranteed contracts. The Cavs could trade their second rounders for one of these picks. The Cavs had been rumored for CJ Miles to the Nets #22 pick.
