Reports at this time of the year have a lot of misinformation in them but you can never be too sure. With the #1 ranked player coming off serious knee surgery and having a limited offensive game to begin with, there are a lot of options the Cleveland Cavaliers must consider before the draft.

Should they just take Noel and ‘red shirt’ him? Should they take the most skilled player today in Otto Porter? Should they bank on the potential of a Ben McLemore or Alex Len?

According to reports, Alex Len is becoming the most intriguing option.

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 said 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 won’t be able to work out in front of the team.

What do you think? Smokescreen or is Len coming to the Cavs?!
