The NBA Draft is just a day away and the Cleveland Cavaliers are making plans.
Cleveland has secured the 14th pick in the draft, meaning they are far ahead of many other front offices but a good deal behind some of the luckiest teams in the league.
Like many other teams, the Cavs are keeping their plans close to the vest.
It is known that they have about 10 players on their radar, including Dalen Terry from Arizona and MarJon Beuchamp from the G League.
The Timberwolves, Grizzlies and Bucks are among the teams interested in trading up to No. 14 overall with the Cavaliers, per @MikeAScotto.

However, it seems that a few other teams are aiming for Cleveland’s No. 14 pick.
The Minnesota Timberwolves, Memphis Grizzlies, and Milwaukee Bucks are all interested in trading for the pick, according to the latest rumors.
What does that mean for the Cavs?
Predicting The Pick
The Cavaliers now have a choice: do they stick with their No. 14 draft pick or do they trade it away?
It all depends on how much potential they see in the young rookies attempting to enter the league.
There is a lot of talent in this year’s draft class, even for the 14th pick in the lineup.
Therefore, the Cavs could find themselves a very capable and talented up-and-comer.
On the other hand, they could turn this pick into a certified, established player from another team.
Who and what are the T-Wolves, Grizz, and Bucks willing to give up for that 14th pick?
Some of the teams vying for Cleveland’s pick already have a spot in the draft: the Timberwolves, for example, sit at No. 19.
So, Cleveland could only fall back a few spots if they make a trade.
They have a lot of options right now.,
They just need to decide which direction they are going to move in.
