With just more than a week to go before the NBA Draft, the Cleveland Cavaliers have yet to make a decision on what they will do with the No. 1 overall pick. Kentucky center Nerlens Noel, Kansas shooting guard Ben McLemore, Maryland center Alex Len and Georgetown small forward Otto Porter all remain in the mix, sources told FOX Sports Ohio on Tuesday. A report by New Orleans Times-Picayune writer Jimmy Smith on Monday suggested Len is the frontrunner -- but FSO sources suggested such is not the case, and for the time being, there is no favorite. Noel is scheduled to visit the Cavs on Thursday, and general manager Chris Grant and his staff are unlikely to reach any conclusions until he does. Noel underwent knee surgery in February, and wont be able to work out in front of the team. He is making the second known visit by a probable top-five pick this week. The Cavs also brought in UNLV forward Anthony Bennett on Monday. According to sources, Bennett and Indiana guard Victor Oladipo are out of the equation for the No. 1 pick, and the Cavs would only have an interest in either in a trade-down scenario. However, without getting into specifics, sources said another player not among the aforementioned is also under consideration by the Cavs. Noel is 6-foot-11 and averaged 10.5 points, 9.5 rebounds and 4.4 blocks during his freshman season before suffering a torn anterior-cruciate ligament in February (24 games). McLemore is 6-5 and averaged 15.2 points on 50 percent shooting, including 42 percent on college 3-pointers. Like Noel, McLemore declared for the draft following his freshman season. Meanwhile, Len and Porter just completed their sophomore seasons. Len is 7-1 and averaged 11.9 points and 7.8 rebounds, while Porter is 6-8 and compiled averages of 16.2 and 7.5, respectively. Double Dribbles The Cavs are exploring the idea of trading both of their second-round selections (Nos. 31 and 33) to obtain a third first-round pick, a source told FOX Sports Ohio. Along with the first selection, the Cavs also own the19th. Packaging the 19th and both second-rounders to move up in the first round is also a possibility. Russian small forward Sergey Karasev remains a favorite of the Cavs. He may be a target at No. 19. However, Atlanta Hawks GM Danny Ferry is also said to be high on Karasev and his team owns the Nos. 17 and 18 selections. Trading the top pick is another option the Cavs have explored, and they will likely continue to do so. Theyve also recently taken part in trade discussions involving a viable small forward, according to an FSO source. Twitter: @SamAmicoFSO
