Cleveland Cavaliers NBA Draft Stunner: Dion Waiters 4th Overall

Cleveland with the NBA Draft’s first major surprise – the Cavaliers just took Syracuse guard Dion Waiters 4th overall.

What a meteoric rise for Waiters, who wasn’t even a starter at Syracuse last season – he did get starter minutes – and didn’t even win the Big East Player of the Year award (if you follow this site, you know he had my vote).

Waiters is a terrific scorer, but there is some concern on my end about whether or not his one-year explosion was deceptive. Remember how good Wes Johnson was a couple years ago? He’s struggling big-time in Minnesota.

4. Cleveland, Dion Waiters
5. Sacramento, Thomas Robinson
6. Portland, Damian Lillard
7. Golden State, Harrison Barnes
