The Cleveland Cavaliers addressed their biggest need by choosing Auburn small forward Isaac Okoro with the fifth overall pick in the NBA draft Wednesday night. The 6-foot-6, 225-pounder was widely considered the top defensive swingman available and joins a frontcourt that features two former All-Stars in center Andre Drummond and power forward Kevin Love. Okoro averaged 12.9 points and 4.4 rebounds in his lone season with the Tigers, starting all 28 games as a freshman.
