Strong Chance Embiid Drafted No. 1 by Cavs?

But to be the first player to shake NBA commissioner Adam Silver’s hand on draft night, (Joel) Embiid must overcome two obstacles. The first is the cadre of doctors the Cavs will throw at him in Cleveland. The second is owner Dan Gilbert, who has given Cavs management a mandate to win now. While the Cavs have been mum on who they will take No. 1 in the draft — various factions within the organization have been stumping for Embiid, Andrew Wiggins or Jabari Parker — there is a growing consensus within the organization that if the Cavs’ doctors give Embiid’s back the green light, he’ll be the choice of general manager David Griffin for the No. 1 pick.
