Andy Katz of ESPN wrote:The Cleveland Cavaliers are down to a final list of three players for the No. 1 pick and hope to make a decision by Thursday morning, according to a source.

The list is expected to include Alex Len, Nerlens Noel and either Otto Porter or Ben McLemore. Chad Ford reported on Monday that it could come down to Len and Noel.

But the Cavs are also exploring trading the top pick since they’re not in love with any one player who in a “normal” year wouldn’t be a top pick. According to a source, Cleveland offered the No. 1 pick, Tristan Thompson and Dion Waiters to try and land Minnesota’s Kevin Love. But new Timberwolves president Flip Saunders won’t move Love.

The Cavs are fond of Thompson and Waiters -- the latter being one of the top six rookies last season -- but Cleveland would love to get an All-Star forward to pair with All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving.

The problem for Cleveland is there aren’t any takers for the top pick at the moment.

Elsewhere, a source said Oklahoma City was interested in packaging its two first-round picks (Nos. 12 and 29) and Kendrick Perkins for a top-five pick. But the Thunder have had no takers either.

Meanwhile, Dallas is openly shopping its No. 13 pick, but is having a hard time finding a quality deal.

There are a still a number of moves that could occur before the draft, like Golden State trying to purchase a second-round pick. But as of Tuesday afternoon, there was a lot of talk, but not much action.

With roughly 48 hours until the #NBADraft it appears the Cavs are going for a big man with the top pick. Len favored by front office.

RT @lakers2012_13: do you think the Lakers buy or trade for a 1st round pick? ---> Again... No. They have not pursued that.

Cavs preference is 1. Trade the pick. 2. Draft a big. As for their board everything I hear from my sources point to Len over Noel.

As of last night, it was believed OKC offering Kendrick Perkins and two first-rounders (Nos. 12 & 29) and possibly second (32) to get 5.


Alex Kennedy ‏@AlexKennedyNBA 2h
Cleveland has offered New Orleans the No. 1 pick for Greivis Vasquez, the No. 6 pick and a 2014 first-round pick:

Cavs really don't want that pick, it seems.

Adrian Wojnarowski ‏@WojYahooNBA 2h
Cleveland pushing to acquire Dallas' 13th overall pick, with a focus on drafting Russia's Sergey Karasev, league sources tell Y!

Orlando has been doing a great deal of work on players in late lottery-mid 1st round range, weighing possible deals out of No. 2 spot.

A bit of Ohio State news. Hearing the Hawks, Bulls, Pistons, & Lakers like Deshaun Thomas. Solid 2nd round pick. #NBADraft
