The Cleveland Cavaliers have the #1 pick in the NBA Draft. It now looks like they are down to Andrew Wiggins and Jabari Parker or trading the pick. The Orlando Magic look to be out and now only the Sixers and Celtics are in play for the pick tho the Utah Jazz shouldn’t be counted out. The trade that it looks like could go down, based on the latest NBA Rumor, between the Cavs and the Sixers reportedly involves alot of picks:
Can confirm @BobCooney76's report that Cleveland's asking price is 3, 10, and 32 for 1. Sixers will not do that.

Re: Reports that Cavs are asking for 3, 10 & 32 from Sixers for No. 1. If Sixers tanked all year for Wiggins, they have to say yes, right?

So it looks like as of now it is the Sixers that are not interested in that big of a deal. The 32nd pick is like a first round pick in this draft. Some reports are that teams are looking to draft players they can stash overseas late in the 1st round to keep their cap space open. That could leave the Cavs with tons of options.
Yet they would be trading out of the #1 pick and a chance at Wiggins and Parker who could be game changing. Yet the resources they would receive could help the acquire veteran help, including trading for Kevin Love. Who knows what the Cavs could receive for those picks and the motivation for making that deal.
Do they not like Wiggins? Not like Parker? Love Joel Embiid? Think their roster is deplete of talent? It will take strong motivation to get out of such a huge pick.
Is that enough for you to make the move?
