PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Andrew Wiggins, Jabari Parker or Joel Embiid. Who will go first in the 2014 NBA draft? That’s the question everyone is asking on the morning after the NBA draft lottery.
Most Sixers fans are hoping the highly coveted Wiggins, whose 6’8″ long frame would fit perfectly as a wing-guard compliment to other freakishly athletic players like Michael Carter-Williams and Nerlens Noel, falls to number three. While that seems unlikely, a report circulated early today stating the Cavs are targeting Joel Embiid with the first pick. However, Bovada lists Wiggins as better than an even money favorite to be the first player of the board.

Good thing the NBA draft doesn’t start until June 26th. We have over a month to read reports, scrutinize odds and debate who should and will go number one.
Strap in, Sixers fans!
