2014 NBA Draft Rumors: 5 Last-Minute Cleveland Cavaliers Whispers

NBA Draft Rumors

The Cleveland Cavaliers have worked out Jabari Parker and Andrew Wiggins, and some interesting news has come out as a result. It is going to be fun to see what happens with this situation, because the future of the 2014 NBA Draft hangs in the balance. The Cavs will obviously be in the lottery again one day, but they can delay the date by nailing this selection. Here are five last-minute whispers surrounding Ohio's favorite basketball team.

LeBron James is not going to the Cavs this offseason, so just stop it. If that were a possibility, then we all would have known about it a long time ago. Dan Gilbert will hopefully make the obligatory apology call, but it will not be enough. Years of ineptitude cannot be erased by a last-second reversal.

4. Andrew Wiggins Impressed

For as much as Parker did not impress during his Cavs workout, apparently Andrew Wiggins was the polar opposite. It is going to be an impactful decision that Dan Gilbert and company have to make, but in the end they need to take a player who will be talented and reliable. Wiggins is a special player, but Parker might be more loyal.

The Cavaliers seemed to have fallen in love with Joel Embiid a while ago, and trading down for additional assets could be the best route for them. Philly's offer of Thaddeus Young and the third pick is not quite enough, and the Cavs would do better to hold out for a superior offer.

2. They Will Ship Kyrie Irving

It's unlikely, but if they decide that the Kyrie Irving experiment is over, then the draft would probably be the best time to pull the trigger. It is not time yet to give up on the point guard though, because he has world-class potential. They should wait and see if he can be a better leader next season.

There have been rumors that Jabari Parker threw his Cleveland Cavaliers workout. That simply cannot be true, but I am mostly shocked by whoever leaked the information about his weight. The former Duke Blue Devil plays at one speed, and Dan Gilbert's team would be foolish to pass on the forward.
