Michael Porter Jr. is Cavs Top Choice at No. 8

Los Angeles Clippers: Ranking potential draft-day trades

While the Cavs didn't win the draft lottery like they hoped they would when they traded for the No. 8 pick, this year's class is considered to be quite deep near the top. He told CBS Sports' Damon Amendolara he believes he's a combination of two star players now in the league and one Hall of Famer.

"Right now, I would say I'm a mix of Giannis (Antetokounmpo) and KD (Kevin Durant)", he said. "So that's what I like to compare myself to - and also Tracy McGrady".

Again, Porter Jr.is a talent and will most likely go on to have a solid National Basketball Association career, but there are three key reasons why the Hawks should pass on the 6-foot-10 forward. "And then people took that and kind of ran with it, saying, you know, my hip was injured, I couldn't get out of bed". But I like to shoot the ball a little more than Giannis. Those are three awesome players. "It doesn't feel bad to be in the same conversation as them".

Starbucks to Close More Stores Amid Glut of Coffee Shops
Starbucks announced plans to close over 100 underperforming stores in locations where it already has a strong presence. China is the company's biggest growth driver with same-store sales rising 4 percent in the last reported quarter.

In a center-heavy draft, Deandre Ayton, Marvin Bagley III, Jaren Jackson Jr. and Mohamed Bamba are all projected to be gone within the first seven picks.

During the interview Porter added that he would be open to doing more workouts for NBA front offices ahead of Thursday's NBA Draft.

In their recent mock draft, USA Today's Jeff Zillgitt, Michael Singer and Sam Amick mention the possibility that the Kings could trade down to select Porter while also picking up a first round pick in the 2019 draft, something Sacramento now lacks.
