2022 NBA Draft live tracker, results: Hornets select Mark Williams with No. 15 pick

The Cavaliers are at a point in their rebuild where they can focus more on positional customization than just talent, especially after creating the final four lottery picks based on talent. Since Cleveland lands the No. 14, it can focus on position and pass here. There are a few areas the Cavs can also address: a backup point guard, a two-way wing, and a backup center.

At No. 14, there are several ways the Cavs could go with this pick. But since one of the biggest areas of need is a wing, I think the Cavs will take Ochai Agbaji. His age doesn’t matter, mostly given the core group’s youth in Cleveland. At 22, Agbaji could fit into that group. He’s a catch and shoot player, he can break away from screens and make solid cuts. He also fulfills a defensive need with his physicality. Agbaji can shoot, which is an element the Cavs need. In his final season, he shot 40.9 percent from 3, averaging 6.5 attempts per game. Agbaji lacks playmaking and self-creation, which are other aspects the Cavs need, but here they can fill the need for a wing that can shoot.

Now, mostly because it’s early days, I have other people I’ve been considering here, Ousmane Dieng and Tari Eason, both of whom were still on the board. Exceptional prospects I would have considered were Dyson Daniels and Malaki Branham.
