From Bill Livingston of Cleveland’s Plain Dealer:  “Noel is a shot-blocker who can alter games merely by his proximity to a shooter. But he has no offensive game, other than dunks. At 206 pounds, how he is going to hold post position against veterans’ bulk and strength? Of course Noel will gain some weight. But he has to gain 40 or 50 pounds. When he does, how will that affect his foot speed in challenging shots and protecting the rim?

Don’t the Cavs already have a “project” big man in Tyler Zeller, anyway?

The Cavs need a shooting guard/small forward who doesn’t shoot 42.1 percent for his career. In other words, someone other than Alonzo Gee.”
