76ers Could Have Preferred Target Wiggins Fall To Them At No. 3

The Milwaukee Bucks are not believed to have Andrew Wiggins in their top-two, preferring Joel Embiid and Jabari Parker.

But the Philadelphia 76ers have had Wiggins as their top target all season and could take him there if Embiid goes to the Cleveland Cavaliers with the top pick.

"I think he has the most star potential of anyone in the draft," one veteran NBA scout said, "and I think he goes and helps a team right away. He'll get on the floor for significant minutes right away because he can defend multiple positions. And when his offense catches up to his defense, I just don't see any way that this kid can fail. How do you pass on that if you are Cleveland? It's really the best of both worlds."
