Draft Notes: Cavs, Gobert, Nedovic

June 8 2013 at 10:39am CDT By Zach Links

We could see an awful lot of movement in this year’s NBA draft based on this morning’s news alone.  First, we learned that the Bucks and Wizards have explored a deal involving Ersan Ilyasova and the No. 3 pick.  Then, it was reported that the Magic are open to trading the No. 2 pick and moving down in the draft in order to get some NBA-ready talent in return.  Here’s the latest on the 2013 draft..

  • Sam Amico of FOX Sports (via Twitter) is pretty sure that the Cavs will draft a backup point guard if they keep their second round picks.
  • Center Rudy Gobert withdrew from the Adidas Eurocamp, citing illness, according to Scott Howard-Cooper of NBA.com (via Twitter).  The French center, who is a likely first round pick, has been working out in the U.S. in advance of the draft.
  • Two NBA execs compared Nemanja Nedovic to a poor man’s Russell Westbrook, tweets Howard-Cooper.  The Serbian point guard obviously isn’t of the same talent level but has a similar kind of game in that he gets to the rim and plays aggressive defense.  Nedovic, who is pegged for the second round, needs to improve his shooting.
