NBA Trade Rumors – The Cleveland Cavaliers continue to try to move the No. 1 overall pick, and are discussing a deal with the New Orleans Pelicans. The Cavs have said that they want a prospect, a 2013 lottery pick and a 2014 first-round pick for the top pick in this year’s draft, and that’s what the team is offering to New Orleans:
Cleveland offered New Orleans this year’s top overall pick in exchange for point guard Greivis Vasquez, the No. 6 overall pick and a 2014 first-round pick, according to sources.
According to Hoopsworld, it’s uncertain whether the Pelicans have expressed any interest in such deal. Looking at the deal, it’s probably not something that the Pelicans would want to do. First of all, there is no way New Orleans is giving up an unprotected first-round pick in the stacked 2014 draft, which is probably what the Cavs would push for.
The Pelicans would probably like to form a frontcourt of Nerlens Noel and Anthony Davis, but the price is likely too high.
