Following the selection of Andrew Wiggins #1 in the 2014 NBA Draft, the Cleveland Cavaliers made their 2nd selection at #33. The Cavs still have needs related to shooting and shot blocking. Wiggins can play both shooting guard and small forward. With that pick the Cavaliers selected Joe Harris, a lights out shooter. He comes off screens well. So the Cavaliers drafted a Cavalier.
Harris is considered a shooting guard and will fit well with how David Blatt likes to run his offenses. Harris can quickly come off the bench and be a dynamite shooter playing off of Dion Waiters, Jarrett Jack or whoever is running the point.
While watching highlights he looks a lot like Doug McDermott, a little smaller, but with the ability to be strong on defense and can post up smaller players. Again his strong suit is shooting and with the Cavs they can set him up in the corner and let him get ready to fire.
The Cavs can still make a number of moves tonight, but the lack of moves tonight may mean they are working the phones for a bigger deal. We noted earlier tonight the possible package to get Kevin Love to try to draw in LeBron James.
Adding the athlete of Wiggins with the shooting of Harris answers two of the biggest issues of the team. They still need to figure out defense and rim protection, as well as adding some more shooters. The start of the change for the team started tonight.
Many moves will happen all night and we will address in the morning.
