Byron Scott explains why Cavs took Irving No. 1
“We just thought Kyrie was the best player int he draft,” Scott said. “With the No. 1 pick, obviously you have to pick the best player.”
Scott said that they think Irving is the best player, regardless of position. He said he thinks Irving is a unique prospect because he has size and still that incredible quickness. Scott did say that Derrick Williams was impressive as well, but they gave the nod to Irving.
However, Scott did say that Baron Davis will likely start right now.
