Cleveland Cavaliers Draft Picks: List of 2024 and Future Draft Selections

    The Cavaliers forked over several first-round picks in the huge deal to score Donovan Mitchell in 2022. The trade sent 2025, 2026, 2027, 2027, and 2029 first-round picks to the Jazz. A massive risk that has helped the Cavaliers reach the playoffs in the last two seasons but hasn’t led to a Conference Finals appearance. Take a look at the Cavs upcoming draft picks.

    How Many No. 1 Picks Have the Cavaliers Had?

    The Cavaliers have had the number one overall pick 6 times in franchise history. They took Andrew Wiggins in 2014 before trading him to the T-Wolves, Anthony Bennett in 2013, Kyrie Irving in 2011, LeBron James in 2003, Brad Daugherty in 1986, and Austin Carr in 1971.

    LeBron James ended up being one of the greatest players ever while Kyrie Irving has enjoyed a tremendous amount of success as well. As teammates, James and Irving came back from a 3-1 deficit in the 2016 NBA Finals vs the Golden State Warriors to give the Cavs their first title.

    LeBron James won 2 MVPs with the Cavaliers in 11 seasons. He averaged 27.2 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 7.3 assists with the team while making the All-Star team 10 times in Cleveland. Irving played 6 seasons in Cleveland averaging 21.6 points and 5.5 assists while shooting 45.7% from the field and 38.3% from downtown.

    Cavaliers Recent Season Results

    Cleveland has reached the playoffs in the past two seasons after falling apart when LeBron James left the team for the Lakers after the 2018 season. They won just 19 games in both the 2018-10 and 2019-20 seasons. Then the Cavs won 22 games in 2020-21.

    With James, the Cavaliers played in 4 straight NBA Finals and won the 2016 title with Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love, and company. James had just returned to Cleveland in 2014 after winning two titles in four seasons with the Miami Heat.

    Donovan Mitchell joined the Cavs in 2022 via trade and helped them get back into the playoffs with a 51 and 48 win season but the team has been bounced before the Conference Finals in both seasons. Take a look at some of the recent seasons for the Cavs. The team joined the NBA in the 1970-71 season.
