The Cavaliers [1] hold both the No. 1 and 4 selections in Thursday’s NBA draft. General manager Chris Grant says that the team intends to use both of the picks [2].

Grant told ESPN that he knows who he wants to select with the top pick but still has to discuss the selection with the rest of the staff. It is expected that either Duke’s Kyrie Irving or Arizona’s Derrick Williams [3] will be the No. 1 overall pick.

The team held the last of it’s pre-draft workouts on Monday. They worked out Williams, center Enes Kanter from Turkey and Kentucky guard Brandon Knight [4]. For Williams and Kanter it was their second visit and the two met with owner Dan Gilbert [5] following the workouts.
