Cleveland wins … the draft lottery

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: The Cleveland Cavaliers finally won.

Unfortunately, it wasn’t the championship or a playoff game. Their victory may have been because of a fourteen year old boy.

On Tuesday, owner Dan Gilbert’s teenage son was representing the Cavs’ at the NBA’s draft lottery and accepted the right to the first overall pick in June’s draft.

Hopefully, this is another step in the franchise building a new identity after losing superstar LeBron James to free agency last summer.

However, many believe this is a poor draft, so even when the Cavaliers win, they lose. 

Anyyway, the full lottery results are listed below:

1.  Cleveland (via Clippers)

2.  Minnesota

3.  Utah (via Nets)

4.  Cleveland

5.  Toronto

6.  Washington

7.  Sacramento

8.  Detroit

9.  Charlotte

10.  Milwaukee

11.  Golden State

12.  Utah

13.  Phoenix

14.  Houston
