2011 NBA Draft: Rumor Mill Swirling As Draft Nears

As I write this the 2011 NBA Draft is just moments away from beginning. Which means the Cleveland Cavaliers are just moments away from most likely making former Duke point guard Kyrie Irving the No. 1 overall pick.

Draft wheeling and dealing has already begun, as the Sacramenton Kings, Charlotte Bobcats and Milwaukee Bucks pulled off a trade involving five players and three draft picks.

There are also rumors swirling everywhere, many involving the New York Knicks. Lots of reports that the Knicks might try to move up to get ahead of Utah at No. 12 and select Jimmer Fredette. There are also reports that UCon’n’s Kemba Walker, not long ago considered a lock to be a top 10 pick, might have a knee injury that could cause him to slide all the way to New York at No. 17.

We won’t have to wait long to find out.
