Will the Cleveland Cavaliers take Duke point guard Kyrie Irving or Arizona forward Derrick Williams with the No. 1 pick in the 2011 NBA Draft on June 23? Just about everyone has pegged Irving there, but Cavs coach Byron Scott told Yahoo!'s Marc Spears that the team legitimately hasn't decided yet.
"We’re all keeping an open mind and understand we have a few more workouts to go through. Both of those guys are very, very good basketball players in our minds. Both are going to have a long career, but no way are we set on a guy."
Scott addressed the speculation that the Cavs' potential picks with their No. 4 pick could inform the top selection overall, saying that he'd heard the suggestion Cleveland takes Williams at No. 1 because a nice young point guard like Brandon Knight would be available at No. 4. But Scott's quotes on Irving -- he compares him to his old point guard in New Orleans, Chris Paul -- are reverential enough that a close reading makes it clear Irving is the preferred candidate.
