The Cleveland Cavaliers have the No. 3 pick in tonight’s NBA Draft, so who should the team take with that pick and who are the prospects we should avoid picking?

With the third pick in the 2021 NBA Draft, the Cleveland Cavaliers should select Jalen Green.

The G-League standout bypassed playing college basketball despite being one of the top recruits in the nation. Had he been a recruit in this class, he very likely could have decided to play in college because he would have been able to cash in on his name, image and likeness. Alas, Green got paid for his one year in the G-League and is now looking to cash in with a mega-millions contract as one of the first picks in the NBA Draft.

Cade Cunningham will reportedly be the No. 1 pick of the Detroit Pistons. USC center Evan Mobley may be the No. 2 pick with the Houston Rockets on the clock. That means the Cavs can get the potential future NBA scoring leader with the third pick.

The 6-foot-6 shooting guard has some similarities to Bradley Beal. Both are lean, shifty, elusive shooting guards that can fill up the scoresheet. His ability to shoot from 3-point range is improving and he really doesn’t have too many holes in his offensive arsenal.

Imagine pairing Green with Collin Sexton in the Cavaliers backcourt and the type of things they can do together. Of course, Sexton has been mentioned as a possible trade chip, but with or without Sexton, Green projects as a future superstar.

While Green should be the pick of the Cavaliers, who are the prospects the Cavs need to avoid falling in love with and taking in the 2021 NBA Draft?
