With the 30th and final pick in the 2009 Blazersedge Mock Draft the Cleveland Cavaliers select Danny Green from UNC.

And that's your 2009 Blazersedge Mock Draft.  Thanks to all who participated either as a GM for another team or as part of the collective GM brain trust for the Blazers.  Look for Mock Draft analysis plus a list of all of the officially proposed trades (including an explanation of that Philly-Minnesota trade) for you to review and comment on later tonight.
