Cleveland gets 2nd-round pick in 2022 NBA Draft from Kings

The Cleveland Cavaliers took part in a last-minute trade just hours before the 2022 NBA Draft. In exchange for the rights to Sasha Vezenkov, the Cavs acquired the 49th pick of the Sacramento Kings.

NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted the news Thursday afternoon.

Vezenkov has yet to play a game in the NBA, making this a no-brainer for the Cavs. They originally acquired his drafting rights in June 2017 in a multi-team trade deal with the Brooklyn Nets.

The Cavs now have four picks in the draft: 14, 39, 49, and 56.

How Did The Cavs Get So Much Action In The 2022 NBA Draft?

For starters, they were awarded the 14th overall pick in the draft lottery back in May. The 39th pick came from the San Antonio Spurs via the Utah Jazz and the 56th pick from the Miami Heat via the Indiana Pacers.

Cleveland joins the Oklahoma City Thunder, San Antonio Spurs and Minnesota Timberwolves with the most 2022 picks with four each. However, that could change again quickly. It was announced on Wednesday that the Cavs received “numerous trade offers” for their first-round No. 14 pick.

The Cavs could consider that, especially now with even more action later in the 2022 NBA draft.
