Cleveland Cavaliers wing Kevin Porter Jr. tied Bol Bol of the Denver Nuggets as the projected biggest steal from the draft in the league’s annual rookie survey.

Porter Jr. and Bol both received 19 percent of the vote in the survey conducted by NBA.com, while Dylan Windler also received a vote in the category. Porter Jr. was the final pick of the first round, acquired in a draft night deal from Milwaukee. Bol was selected with the 44th pick by Denver.

It makes sense that these two would be the leaders when it comes to draft night steals, as both were commonly projected to be top 10 talents heading into last season. Character concerns were cited for both prospects and may have contributed to their fall. Bol also had injury concerns that caused trepidation for front offices.

Both teams will hope that these projections end up being accurate, as the Cavs try to restock the cupboard and the Nuggets try to get over the hump in the Western Conference.

Other Cavaliers highlights from the rookie survey include Darius Garland and Porter Jr. finishing second and sixth for best play-makers in the class, Garland and Windler being mentioned as best shooters, Garland a mention for rookie of the year, as well as Porter Jr. getting a mention for best athlete in the class.

Whether or not these new Cavs will live up to the expectations of their peers remains to be seen, but there’s no denying that this infusion of talent through the draft has given fans reasons for hope about the future of this team.
