The Cleveland Cavaliers will be selecting fifth overall in the 2019 NBA Draft. Here are five sleeper prospects they could consider.

There will be plenty of prospects for the Cleveland Cavaliers to consider drafting with the fifth overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft. With all of the heavy hitters likely to be taken in the top three (Zion Williamson, Ja Morant and R.J. Barrett), the Cavs will have to take a deep look at the remaining pool.

Despite being a top-heavy draft in terms of star power, this class appears to be loaded with potentially solid role players. Cleveland might not draft the future face of their franchise with this pick, but it could land a player ready to have a positive impact on the team for the long-term.

There are a number of players in this draft with high ceilings. A few might peak as starters in the NBA, while some have the potential to become All-Stars. It will be up to the Cavaliers to figure out which player they believe fits them the best.

The Cavs will have to weigh all of their options here. Falling to the fifth spot in the draft was disappointing, but it gives them some freedom to get creative with who they take. Today, let’s look at five sleeper prospects that should be considered.
