The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Schmitt Boyer has posted a new mailbag column, covering various topics surrounding the Cleveland Cavaliers, who hold the fourth overall pick in the June 28 draft. Relevant points below:
- Although the Cavs need a shooting guard, Suns free agent Michael Redd will likely not be a viable candidate, as the team is looking to build around younger players.
- Schmitt Boyer does not believe the Cavs have finished the process of ranking draft prospects to the point of moving up to take a player such as Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.
- Cavs forward Anderson Varejao, who spent much of the 2011/12 season sidelined with a wrist injury, is practicing with the Brazilian national team and is reportedly pain-free.
- Schmitt Boyer says there's a possibility that the Cavs could acquire the 10th pick from the Hornets if it was packaged with the contract of Emeka Okafor.
