Cavs taking close look at Embiid
June 11, 2014
CLEVELAND (AP) - Kansas center Joel Embiid is working out for the Cavaliers, who are trying to decide what to do with the No. 1 overall pick in the NBA draft.
The 7-foot Embiid arrived in Cleveland on Tuesday night for his visit, the Cavs confirmed. The team is giving him a thorough medical physical as well as seeing his skills on the court. The team is eager to have its doctors examine Embiid, who missed the tail end of his freshman season with the Jayhawks because of a stress fracture in his lower back.
Embiid only began playing basketball three years ago in his native Cameroon.
The Cavs won the draft lottery and have the first pick for the second year in a row. They'll likely use the selection on Embiid, Kansas swingman Andrew Wiggins or Duke's Jabari Parker.
