The Cleveland Cavaliers have two selections -- Nos. 5 and 26 -- and plenty of possibilities. They've done their homework, scouting the prospects in person a handful of times, meeting with them during the pre-draft process and getting a feel for who they are with interviews. There's a compelling argument for each of the prospects in that range. Nothing should be ruled out.
