Cavs Awarded No. 1, No. 4 In NBA Draft

SECAUCUS, N.J. (AP) — The Cleveland Cavaliers have won the draft lottery and earned the No. 1 pick in the draft, one year after losing LeBron James.

Represented by 14-year-old Nick Gilbert, the son of owner Dan Gilbert, the Cavaliers won the lottery on Tuesday night and will pick first for the first time since 2003, when they drafted James.

He left for Miami last summer and the Cavs tumbled to the second-worst record in the league, but they will have two top-four picks for a chance at a quick rebuild.

Minnesota will pick second and Utah turned New Jersey’s pick from the Deron Williams trade into the No. 3 selection.
