Terry Pluto likes the picks.
LeBron and Shannon Brown are best friends
Chad Forde likes what the Cavs did:
Round 1: Shannon Brown, SG, Michigan State (No. 25 overall)
Round 2: Daniel Gibson, PG, Texas (No. 42) Ejike Ugboaja, F, Nigeria (No. 55)
Analysis: When you pick late in the first round, you're usually looking for someone who has a chance to be a rotation player.
When you pick in the second, you're looking for someone with a pulse. I think the Cavs exceeded expectations with both picks.
Brown is going to be a dynamite player, a real steal at No. 26. He has the strength and athleticism of a lottery pick. He's a little undersized, but I think he'll be a great spark plug for the Cavs.
I also like the Gibson pick in Round 2. As a point guard, Gibson is a so-so prospect. But as a scoring two, he could be a Ben Gordon-type player.
Marty Burns thinks the Cavs did well too. He's also saying Brown could be insurance in case Flip Murray leaves (you think?).
