Cal hopes Cavs take Nerlens

UK coach John Calipari is hoping the Cleveland Cavaliers take Nerlens Noel with the No. 1 pick in the June 27 NBA draft.

It's not because Calipari wants another top pick to come out of his program. He has great respect for Cavaliers general manager Chris Grant and his staff. Cal told the Cleveland Plain Dealer, "They haven't made mistakes, If they pick him, in all likelihood, history tells you something: It's not a mistake, which means it's good for my kid.

"Chris Grant has been in our building more than any other GM. That's no disrespect to any other GM. That's just a fact. He and his staff are very thorough in what they've done. That's why I say I hope he gets drafted by them.''
