Cavaliers Reportedly ‘Blown Away’ By Joel Embiid’s Workout

by June 17, 2014

A year ago, the Cavaliers kept everybody guessing about who they’d take first overall until the very moment they declared the pick. They’re not making their intentions any more obvious this summer, but we have some clues as to who they may take. From’s Chad Ford:

Embiid’s workout and interview in Cleveland last week were major successes, according to sources close to the Cavs. Embiid did a full workout there in front of the Cavs’ front office and owner Dan Gilbert. Multiple sources said that the team was blown away with the workout. Embiid even ended one session by launching and nailing a series of 3s. Directly after the workout, two different sources told me that Embiid was the strong favorite to be drafted by the Cavs. Even Gilbert was on board.Ā
