Cavs have continued to reject deals for their first pick.
The Philadelphia 76ers reportedly made a desperate play to the Cleveland Cavaliers in order to land the number one overall pick in the NBA Draft 2014, as reported by Pro Basketball Talk.
According to Dei Lynam of CSNPhilly.com, the Sixers offered the third, 10th and 32nd picks to the Cavaliers for the No.1 pick in the Draft.
However, as reported across the US media, even that wasn’t enough to persuade the Cavs to part with their pick and it is understood that they will choose between either Jabari Parker or Andrew Wiggins.
As a result, Philadelphia have now given up in their pursuit of landing their main targets despite their significant desire to pair Wiggins with point guard Michael Carter-Williams.
In addition, it is understood that Thaddeus Young was set to be used as a trading chip, but that hasn’t been enough for Cleveland to seriously consider the offer and they will now look ahead to making the all-important decision.
With Kyrie Irving already at the organisation, speculation continues to link the franchise with a move to bring LeBron James back after he decided to opt out of his contract with the Miami Heat earlier this week.
However, the focus has purely been on the NBA Draft for the last few days, and it remains to be seen who the Cavaliers decide to select with Joel Embiid, their initial first choice, seemingly out of the picture and dropping down the board and both Parker and Wiggins pushing hard to be the first name read out by commissioner Adam Silver.
