Cavaliers hosted Trae Young in secret pre-draft workout

Cavaliers hosted Trae Young in secret pre-draft workout

Adidas missed out on a couple of marquee talents in the 2018 draft class, but Young and Walker are both potential lottery picks.

From the moment they were paired with the sixth pick, there have been all manner of players who appeared to be the right choice for the team to take, for all manner of reasons.

Young was recruited for years by Oklahoma, his hometown school, and Sooners coach Lon Kruger spent hours and hours with him this past season breaking down film — probably all the while knowing that his star guard was going the one-and-done route. Given my philosophy of drafting for need within tiers, that left me considering the point guards available, none of whom projects quite this high by my model. Bleacher Report has Young being drafted by the Orlando Magic with the No. 6 overall pick in the draft. But, if the Duke big man is available at No. 8, the Cavaliers could choose a center apt to play alongside James.

"I feel like I'm a very versatile guard", he said.

Trae Young has been embracing the comparisons between him and the three-time National Basketball Association champion in order to motivate him to be the best player he can possibly be.


He might be the best shooter in the draft, and highlights like these show why he's been compared to Stephen Curry. His skill-set would unquestionably add another layer of versatility to the roster.

Young has been referred to as one of the first children of the Curry generation. Not everybody was happy by this news. Along with the Young news, Givony reported if Missouri's Michael Porter is off the board, the decision could be between Young and Kentucky's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. Young can create his own shot, handles the ball at an elite level, passes at a level that would fit alongside James and could become one of the league's most risky scorers from 3-point range.

Alabama basketball fans will watch closely Thursday night to see what team selects Collin Sexton. Young also told GQ he's had to cut chicken strips and pizza out of his diet, since he was eating them every single day, and that's helped his lower his body fat percentage.

It may be a stretch to say he turned Kemba Walker into an All-Star.
