N.C. State coach Sidney Lowe said he had an inkling all along that J.J. Hickson might be drafted by the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Cleveland was the first NBA team to schedule a workout with Hickson, a 6-9 freshman forward who led the Pack in scoring and rebounding last year. Lowe, a former NBA head coach and assistant, went along with his player.
"I kind of thought that's who it would be after that workout," Lowe said today. "They were very thorough and J.J. did very well. I was able to talk with some of their people personally rather than do it on the phone.
