The Cleveland Cavaliers appear to be looking to upgrade at the small forward position in the upcoming NBA draft.
Otto Porter is considered the top-ranked small forward.
“I’m pretty sure the Cavs are praying right now that Otto Porter is there on the board when they draft,” said ESPN draft analyst Chad Ford. “He is a perfect fit for them. If he’s off the board, I do think there is a question mark there. I think ‘3’ is the position they need the most.
“While we thought three was going to be stronger, we thought Shabazz Muhammad would be a guy that would be a great fit there. I think his play at UCLA has raised major question marks whether that’s the case.”
The Cavaliers will have four of the top 33 picks in the June draft.
