Stunned Cavs open to dealing top pick Cleveland hasn't won a whole lot lately, which is how it wound up with Tuesday's win in the lottery in the first place. When the Cavaliers learned they would have the No. 1 pick for the second time in two years thanks to a lucky lottery draw, it was mostly disbelief. ... An already-young roster paired with what is generally considered to be a weak draft means that questions already are being asked about whether the Cavaliers will trade the No. 1 pick. The top selection in the draft has only been traded once in the lottery era, in 1993. "We're open," [Chris Grant] said. "We're going to look at all our options and make the decision based on what's best for the franchise -- short-term and long-term."
