Report: Cavaliers will be first team to meet one-on-one with Joel Embiid
NBA draft prospect Joel Embiid will meet with the Cleveland Cavaliers in the coming weeks to determine the team's interest in drafting him with their No. 1 overall pick, according to Andy Katz of ESPN.
Embiid and his agency have decided to put off any other workouts or team physicals until Cleveland has had a chance to decide whether it will take the former Kansas Jayhawk with the first selection, according to Katz's report.
The 7-foot Cameroon native has been projected as a likely top choice throughout the season. That's why Embiid won't visit with Milwaukee or Philadelphia, which have the next two picks, until Cleveland has a chance to review his case for No. 1.
Embiid and fellow top prospect Jabari Parker are represented by the Wasserman Group, which believes the players will be taken with the first two picks.skipped the NBA draft combine in Chicago earlier this month.
