Cavs get to the point

The Cavaliers got their point guard in Daniel Gibson with the #42 pick and selected Nigerian small forward Ejike Ugboaja with their third and final pick of the 2006 draft. Gibson, a sophomore out of Texas, put up 13.4 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 3.1 assists last season.

With the selection of Shannon Brown and Gibson, the Cavs really shored up their backcourt and shooting issues. Gibson also is a very solid outside threat, shooting the three at a 38% clip last season. The pick of Ugboaja was a little confusing, however. He’s a raw small forward who may not even make the team. I would have preferred the Cavs had gone with a big man with their last pick, someone like Terence Dials of OSU, considering the uncertainty with Drew Gooden. Overall, Danny Ferry did a pretty decent job with the draft and improved the team where they needed it most.
