The Philadelphia 76ers have approached the Cleveland Cavaliers about a potential trade for the No. 1 pick, and are reportedly targeting former Kansas guard Andrew Wiggins, according to ESPN.com's Chad Ford.

More from ESPN.com:

The Sixers actually have engaged the Cavs about moving to No. 1. They aren't willing to give up both the Nos. 3 and 10 picks, but a combination of No. 3 and Thaddeus Young is a possibility.

Wiggins averaged 17.1 points and 5.9 rebounds in his freshman season at Kansas. Young was the 76ers' leading scorer last season, averaging 17.6 points, to go with 6 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game.
