Statement from Cavs assistant general manager Koby Altman after a quiet draft night when Cleveland made no picks and no trades: "We came into tonight's NBA Draft with an opportunistic mindset should a situation develop for us to acquire any pick we felt would help improve our roster. While we had discussions specifically focused on acquiring picks tonight, we did not feel any of the draft-related options available to us created an opportunity to improve our team or tie into larger deals at this point. As we do year-round, our group will continue to creatively and aggressively evaluate and consider potential trades and free agent signings that would help us reach our singular goal of winning another NBA championship."

"We're involved in everything. We're going to pursue everything," Sam Presti said Thursday. "Don't be upset just because it's not spewing out of this building, that we're not pursuing the same things that you read about on the Internet. We're going to make all those calls. We're going to pursue all those things."

Here's Spurs general manager R.C. Buford on the team possibly shopping LaMarcus Aldridge for a trade before the draft: "The thing I'd say is we've got a team that's won 128 games [since Aldridge's arrival], were in the conference finals. We're happy with the group we have. If we can make it better, we'll do it at any opportunity we can. But it's more than just players. It's the fit for our group, and our goals for this team are to continue to compete for championships, and LaMarcus helps us do that. So, that's where we sit with LaMarcus."
