The Cavs got a haul
The Cleveland Cavaliers used the 2019 NBA Draft to dramatically improve their roster. The future of Darius Garland, Dylan Windler and Kevin Porter Jr. belongs to the great unknown, but at the very least, the roster has more potential after the draft and is better on paper than it was when the regular season ended.
Garland is a combo guard, but the immediate questions surrounding him will concentrate on whether not he can be productive in the same backcourt as Collin Sexton.
NBA writer Alex Kennedy called Garland the fourth best prospect in the draft, yet Cleveland nabbed him with the fifth pick.
Windler was unknown to 99.99 percent of Cavs’ fans on draft night, but he can shoot. He was a unicorn in the first-round of the draft, having played four seasons of college ball for Belmont. While playing in Nashville, Windler shot better than 53 percent in each of his final three seasons.
His ceiling appears to be that of Kyle Korver. If he even comes close to touching that ceiling, then this will be a pick well spent by general manager Koby Altman.
Kevin Porter Jr. is a great value pick because he was thought of as a lottery pick at one time, but for one reason or another, almost fell out of the first round….
