In a recent player-based NBA Draft special for ESPN the Magazine, Cleveland Cavaliers shooting guard dons his General Manger hat (flat-brimmed, slightly crooked) and selects UConn center Andre Drummond as the newest player to join the Wine and Gold.
“He’s a young, athletic 7-footer with great potential,” says Cavs guard Gibson about Drummond, who ranked in the top-30 in both offensive rebound and block percentage. “And, as they say, you just can’t teach height.”
Anthony Davis, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Harrison Barnes are selected first through third, respectively. Shooting guard Bradley Beal, whom the team has been rumored to desire by trading up to the second pick, fell to 19th-overall, scooped up by Orlando’s JJ Redick. Gibson selected Iowa forward Royce White with the 24th-overall selection.
