2012 NBA Draft Rumors: Cavaliers Tried Trading for No. 1 Pick

The No. 1 pick is easily Anthony Davis and the Cleveland Cavaliers would love to have him, as he is a once-in-a-lifetime prospect.

However, the sad thing is that they don’t have the No. 1 pick. The New Orleans Hornets currently hold that honor and they won’t give it up for anything, even if another team trades their whole draft.

That’s exactly what Cleveland did, trading all of their draft picks for the No. 1 pick. For the Hornets, all they could do is just laugh at the offer.

From ESPN’s Chad Ford:

Sources say the Cavs offered (the Hornets the) No. 4, No. 24, No. 33 and No. 34 for No. 1. And sources said the Cavs got a firm and quick “No!”

I guess it was a worth a shot.
