Nerlens Noel talks draft, says Cavaliers haven’t told him anything

Jun 27, 2013, 10:45 AM EDT

He’s still the favorite to be the No. 1 overall pick of the Cleveland Cavaliers. And if he’s not, he doesn’t get past the Orlando Magic at No. 2.

He is Nerlens Noel, the Kentucky big man. He was on the Dan Patrick Show Thursday morning and said the Cleveland Cavaliers have told him about as much as they told you about their plans with the top pick.

The interview goes all over the map, including Noel saying he expects to be back on the court following his ACL surgery in November or December.

    CAVS haven’t said anything because they don’t know what they’re doing with the pick!

    Does anyone know how much time teams get between picks in Round 1 and 2? 7 min?

    The big question isn’t who they take #1. The question is who they take at 30. That’s one if the picks they got for Lebron. They say you can’t really judge a trade until 5 or so years go by, so there’s still a chance the Cavs come out ahead on this deal right?

    Seriously though, just for fun I recently YouTube’d video of the Cleveland fan reaction to “The Decision”, and for the first time I actually felt bad for them. For 4 years I was like, “grow up people.” Still can’t justify burning jerseys in the street, but the guys crying over their beers? I feel you. Who knows, maybe next year…….

    Of course they haven’t told him anything. They’re afraid he might flee the country rather then play for the Cavs.
