Embiid and Parker expected to make up top three drafted players.
The Cleveland Cavaliers are reportedly set to take NBA prospect Andrew Wiggins with their first overall pick in the NBA Draft which takes place on June 26.
Cavaliers general manager David Griffin has insisted that there is no clear choice at this stage, with both Jabari Parker and Joel Embiid also reported to be under consideration.
In addition, the Cavs could agree to a trade deal if they are able to pair point guard Kyrie Irving with a proven talent that they feel will be able to take them to the next level.
However, speculation in the media suggests that Wiggins will likely be their man in June, as they believe that he represents the best long-term potential.
“Sources in Cleveland say that Wiggins is the likely choice. The team feels he has the most long-term potential, helps them defensively right out of the gate, can replace Dion Waiters in the starting lineup while adding character to the team,” Chad Ford of ESPN reports.
While Parker was more productive in college, Embiid would also be tempting provided that he gets full clearance on his back injury after making solid progress ahead of entering the NBA.
Nevertheless, Wiggins appears to be the front-runner according to the latest rumours, and it possibly all results in a plan to tempt LeBron James back to Cleveland.
Despite the fact that the Miami Heat star is likely to remain at the AA Arena beyond this summer, theories have been spread over the possibility of him returning to the Cavs, with NBA legend and analyst Charles Barkley insisting that he would love to see it happen before James calls time on his career in the league.
