Source: Akron's Zeke Marshall to work out for Cavaliers on Monday

By Jason Lloyd Published: June 22, 2013

Akron’s Zeke Marshall will work out for the Cavaliers on Monday, a league source confirmed to the Beacon Journal. If he is drafted, Marshall is expected to go in the second round.

The 7-foot center won the Mid-American Conference Defensive Player of the Year award as both a junior and a senior, but he has been inconsistent in his private workouts and left a few team scouts disappointed.

If he makes it in the NBA, it will be because of his defense. Marshall averaged 13 points and 7 rebounds as a senior, while leading the Zips in blocks with 3.7 per game. He has good moves around the rim and is incredibly strong. He can bench press more than 300 pounds, but struggled with inconsistency on the court as well.

The Cavs have the first and third picks in the second round (31st and 33rd overall), which is higher than Marshall is projected to go. But they could also sign him as an undrafted free agent if all 30 teams pass on him. The Cavs are expected to add at least one big on draft night.
