That being said Edwards probably doesnt have enough of a lead in the clubhouse to get the nod over Wiseman's upside for now but id not be shocked to hear Edwards Okongwu or Ball's name called either based on higher floors.
My gut tells me they are seriously considering Ball despite the guard logjam but probably pass with odds hed be a flight risk, might fall in love with Wiseman's upside if he kills it in a private work out but maybe to risky at 1 without one, and probably see the value of Edwards and Okoro about the same only a touch better than Hayes or Vassell but none of them being great fits either so the only real question is how high of a ceiling do they value Okongwu because his floor to defend 4 positions is possibly worth the top pick if they see enough upside.
Let’s say the best offer was 6, 27 and 38
Would Cleveland take that or just draft Ball/Edwards?
From top 2 doubt they'd take the trade but with Wiseman and Edwards gone at 3 they probably take 6 and 27 if they dont like Ball or See much difference in value between any prospects between 3 and 6 and dont get a better offer like okeke and the 12th to 15th wherever it is/future 2nd from Orlando
I would probably prefer a lotto protected 1st/2 2nds in 2022 instead of #38 to be honest. 3 more rookies this year would be too much after bringing in 3 last year as well. At #6 I think we could still get someone the Cavs would likely be high on in Deni Avdija and then at #27 they can get a PF/C like Jalen Smith or Isaiah Stewart. Though I would be hard pressed to pass on Wiseman if he was there personally.
