The Cleveland Cavaliers will look to name a new head coach in the next week or so before the organization hosts likely lottery pick Andrew Wiggins for a workout that will be held in the days leading up to the draft on June 26, according to Chad Ford of ESPN.

The 19-year-old former Kansas standout is scheduled to work out for the Bucks in Santa Barbara next week and then he will visit the Sixers the following weekend. The Bucks and Sixers have the No. 2 and 3 picks in this year's draft, respectively.

As previously reported, the Cavs will soon give second interviews to head coaching candidates Tyronn Lue and Alvin Gentry to fill the vacancy left following the firing of Mike Brown after a 33-49 season in which the Cavs failed to make the playoffs.

Wiggins is widely expected to be a No. 1 overall pick in this year's draft, competing for the top spot with the likes of fellow former Jayhawk center Joel Embiid and Duke swingman Jabari Parker.

Cleveland owns the first pick in the NBA draft for the third time in four years and the fourth time in the last 11 years, dating back to 2003 when the franchise selected a young local product by the name of Lebron James.
