Kotoch: Drummond makes the most sense at #4?

BY foxsports • June 18, 2012

Starting later this week, FOXSportsOhio.com will roll out a series of videos featuring our own Sam Amico talking NBA Draft with Dave Maetzold and ProBasketballDraft.com's Joe Kotoch. 
To hold you until those are available, we have a nifty bit of analysis from Kotoch as to why he would be completely unsurprised if the Cavaliers were to select Andre Drummond with their #4 pick next week:
"Looking historically at Cavs GM Chris Grant he prefers to draft athletic prospects with high upside whenever possible as evidenced by J.J. Hickson, Christian Eyenga, and Tristan Thompson.  Grant was the assistant GM but in charge of the draft and ranking the Cavs board at the time Hickson and Eyenga were selected.  It would not be a shock to see the Cavs pull the trigger on Drummond as the Cavs, who could have as much upside as any player in this draft. "
Per Kotoch, the Cavaliers had Drummond ranked right below Bradley Beal on their draft board, and above Harrison Barnes. 
ProBasketballDraft.com is a must-read from now through the draft alongside, of course, Sam Amico's daily NBA Draft News and Notes columns
