It won't make up for losing LeBron James last summer, but the Cleveland Cavaliers have the first pick of the 2011 NBA Draft. The Cavaliers' original first-round pick was slotted fourth overall in the NBA Draft Lottery, but a first-rounder they acquired from the Clippers jumped all the way to the top despite only a 2.8 percent chance of that happening.
Here is a look at the full 2011 NBA Draft order for the first round with the lottery now in the books:
1. Cleveland Cavaliers (via)
4. Cleveland Cavaliers
12. Utah Jazz
18. Washington Wizards (from)
19. Charlotte Bobcats (from)
20. Minnesota Timberwolves (from)
23. Houston Rockets (from)
27. New Jersey Nets (from)
30. Chicago Bulls
It is expected that the Cavaliers will select Kyrie Irving with the first overall pick. After that there could be a run on big men, which would be bad news for the Pistons, who will likely look at drafting a post player.
