Over the years – (but especially last year) – the Cavaliers have done well uncovering the Draft’s diamonds in the rough. Every year, a few players slip through the cracks on Draft night. Whether that means that they fall through the first round or out of the Draft altogether, it’s a process that baffles front offices when late June rolls around. Last season, the Wine and Gold’s rotation featured a slew of second-rounders like Boobie Gibson, Ryan Hollins, Ramon Sessions, Anderson Varejao and Luke Harangody.

Cavaliers big man Ryan Hollins has had an interesting calendar year.

He was traded to the Cavaliers from Minnesota last summer, survived a 26-game losing streak over the winter and became a local folk hero for his stand against Dwyane Wade and the Heat in the spring. In the season’s final stretch, Hollins developed a rapport with fellow former Bruin, Baron Davis, and closed the campaign on a high note.
