But we already have a point guard? In Collin Sexton?
Yeah, that’s right…but the Cavaliers decided to go with the strategy of “best available” at the number five selection. The team selected another point guard, Darius Garland, with the pick.
Garland comes in at 6’2, 175 pounds from Vanderbilt. He only played in five games where he averaged 16.2 PPG, 2.6 APG, 3.8 RPG while shooting 53.7% (47.8% three) from the floor.
The knee injury that kept him out actually came against a school familiar to us in Kent State.
What Garland provides is profound scorer, a shooter that has exceptional range. Some say he’s an underrated passer, too. Garland is a bit undersized, but he makes up for it with his athleticism and grit!
Welcome to Cleveland and best of luck!
