Over the next few weeks, we’re going to hear several names linked to the Cavaliers top draft selection. None of those may be more appealing than Kentucky forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. Kidd-Gilchrist, who has been working on in Northeast Ohio recently, had good things to say about both Cleveland and Cavalier point guard Kyrie Irving, according to The Plain Dealer’s Mary Schmitt Boyer.

On Cleveland:

And what does he think of Cleveland after spending so much time here?
“It’s a good city,” he said.
Kidd-Gilchrist’s agent, Rich Paul, a Benedictine graduate and friend and business associate of LeBron James, scheduled workouts in several Cleveland-area gyms, including those at Garfield Heights and Beachwood, for his client leading up to the NBA draft on June 28.

On Irving:

“One of my best friends in life, period,” Kidd-Gilchrist said of Irving, the NBA’s Rookie of the Year this past season. “Just a great guy in life and a leader. He’s a leader on the court. We talk a lot. I would love to play with Kyrie, but if not, oh well. It is what it is.”


The NBA Draft is scheduled for June 28th.
