It’s my opinion that the Cavaliers will target and draft one of these eight players with their first pick in the 2013 NBA Draft on June 27 at Madison Square Garden in New York City. I'm assuming their choice will be based on need, balanced with the best player available.

Could someone else sneak into this Elite Eight between now and draft night?

Sure. Just look at what happened last year with Dion Waiters.

But these are going to be the names you’ll hear the most when anyone discusses what the Cavs need or will seek with their lottery pick in the 2013 NBA Draft.
