The Cleveland Cavaliers are considering taking Georgetown forward Otto Porter with the No. 1 pick in next month's draft, according to the Washington Post.

Though there is no clear consensus as to who should be the top choice in this year's draft, Kansas guard Ben McLemore and Kentucky center Nerlens Noel have received the most notice.

But it looks like the Cavaliers may go another route with Porter, who is considered the most NBA-ready player in the draft.

"I definitely see myself up there," Porter said last week. "My versatility. I think that's definitely going to show when I get to the NBA. My ability to rebound, bring it up the court, make something happen or set up the play. Anything that it has in store for me, I think my versatility is going to carry over."

Despite not having the worst record in the NBA, the Cavaliers won the draft lottery and have the top choice.

The Cavaliers have several needs and small forward -- the position Porter plays -- is one of them.

Cleveland might also trade the pick. The Washington Wizards, who are drafting third, are interested in Porter.

The Orlando Magic, who had the league's worst record, have the No. 2 pick.
