Around the NBA Mock Drafts

The Hoop Doctors:


Cleveland Cavaliers

Darren Collison PG 14.4ppg, 4.7apg, 1.6spg
We all have seen how positive Mo Williams has been for the Cavs so they are pretty solid at the point. But clearly Delonte West is a better fit as a scorer at the 2. So where does that leave the Cleveland depth at the point? Collison is a great passer, loves to score, and could be just the guy to back up Mo Williams, even as a rookie. He’s a little suspect defensively as he’s sort of thin, but that can be addressed at the next level.
College Team – UCLA

ESPN Chad Ford:

Analysis: The Cavs could lose both Ben Wallace and Anderson Varejao this summer. Carroll isn’t as big as those guys, but he’s got the same sort of frantic energy that made them so successful. He’s a blue-collar worker who would fit in well with what the Cavs do.


Cleveland Cavaliers: Taj Gibson, PF, USC, 6-9, Jr.
With Anderson Varejao probably opting out of his contract and Ben Wallace contemplating retirement this off-season, the Cavs need to add a physical post player. Gibson can be a role player at the next level with his rebounding and shot-blocking abilities. He will 24 years old by the 2009 NBA Draft and could contribute off the bench in Cleveland right away.

Think: Malik Allen


30) Cleveland: DaJuan Summers (Highlights) – can play the 2 or the 3 and can contribute as a 6th or 7th man off the bench for the Cavs who crave backcourt consistency. Summers was one of my favorite players in college, too bad his team, Georgetown, managed to be god awful this season despite having one of the most talented rosters. Luckily for Summers he will be playing for the Cavs who have LeBron and are coming off the best regular season in team history.
