Shai Gilgeous-Alexander Reportedly does NOT want to be a Cleveland Cavalier

As the NBA Draft draws near, one team appears to have been eliminated from the Shai Gilgeous-Alexander sweepstakes.  The Kentucky point guard has sky-rocketed up draft boards, but ESPN’s Brian Windhorst is ruling out the eighth overall pick.

“I know Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is shooting up draft boards but from what I can tell, it doesn’t seem like he wants to play for the Cavs,” Windhorst said. “He patently refused to work out for them, in fact made a point to tell them he didn’t want to be there.”

All appears normal, until that final clause.

Part of the reason why Gilgeous-Alexander’s stock has soared is because he hasn’t worked out or conducted interviews with teams.  The mystery has added fuel to the flames as teams are drawn in like bugs.  Windhorst’s report isn’t unusual, except for the final caveat: “(he) made a point to tell them he didn’t want to be there.”

I guess that means SGA won’t be suiting up with LeBron anytime soon.

    Shai is a very confident young man. He gained that confidence by outworking everyone in practice. He is relentless! Along with his God given ability and hard work, I believe he will be an NBA all-star. Heard it here first

    Lebron is not going to resign with Cleveland so of course he doesn’t want to play there.

    Our children were taught, at an early age at a prep school where the mantra was: You get what you get, and you don’t pitch a fit.

    I don’t blame him! Lebron won’t be there and the rest of the team is horrible with no quality young talent. Plus an idiot for an owner.

    I completely understand why he wouldn’t want to go to Cleveland, with the Lebron situation and him most likely leaving, BUT I you cannot give the media this type of ammunition. They are already reports completely blowing it up as if it was John Elway situation. SGA is an unbelievable young man, very mature and worked for everything he has and where he has gotten! If he didn’t want to work out with them then that’s HIS choice!! Good Luck in LA bro…I’ll be rooting every step of the way!
