Victor Oladipo shouldn’t purchase property in Cleveland.

ESPN’s Chad Ford claims Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert “loves” shooting guard Victor Oladipo and may select the former Indiana Hoosiers star first overall tomorrow night.

Despite being removed from a hideous 24-58 campaign, Cleveland is an organization on the brink of rocking.

Already employing Kyrie Irving, Dion Waiters and Tristan Thompson, Cavaliers general manager Chris Grant is near assembling a quartet of lottery talent.

Averaging 13.6 points, 6.3 boards and 2.1 assists over 36 games as a junior during the 2012-2013 campaign, the 21-year-old Oladipo would excel working with Irving.

An extremely raw talent, the 6-foot-5, 215 pound Oladipo is a defensive virtuoso who would create turnovers and benefit in transition from Irving’s outstanding passing ability.

Unfortunately for the first-team AP All-American who wisely bolted early from Assembly Hall, Cleveland’s likely going to choose past Kentucky Wildcats center Nerlens Noel.

Suffering a torn ACL in his left knee in February, the 19-year-old Noel had surgery to repair the damage on March 12 and is healing rapidly.

Thanks to the aerial artist’s famed diligence and preparation, Oladipo will probably be taken fifth by Phoenix and thrive as a Sun.

Although Victor Oladipo would eventually sprout in “The Forest City,” expect Dan Gilbert to show “love” for Nerlens Noel roughly 20 hours from now.
