The Cleveland Cavaliers’ lottery luck finally changed on Tuesday night.
After three straight years of failing to move up, the Cavs jumped into the top 4, landing the No. 3 pick in the 2021 NBA Draft.
“I think it’s a tremendous opportunity,” said general manager Koby Altman, who was the team’s on-camera representative. “I think it really positions us well. When we started this a few years back we talked about building through the draft and creating sustainable success. There’s some real game-changers at the top of this draft, but also it puts us in a position to capitalize on different opportunities throughout the landscape of the NBA with this position. We’re fortunate to be able to have this pick, add another talented young man to this roster. We’re in good shape from a talent perspective and we’re going to have another large injection of of talent coming soon.
