Report: Sixers In Bidding War for No. 1 Pick With Utah, Orlando
The Philadelphia 76ers have made it clear that they want Andrew Wiggins badly and reportedly are going down the to the wire with other suitors chasing the No.1 pick as well.
According to Chad Ford of ESPN, the Cleveland Cavalier are in trade talks with the Sixers, Orlando Magic, and Utah Jazz for the No. 1 overall pick.
Right now, the Cavs prefer Orlando’s offer the best out of all the trade possibilities.
Of the offers they’ve received, a source says the Cavs aren’t enamored by either the Sixers’ offer (Thaddeus Young and the No. 3 pick) nor the Jazz’s offer (Derrick Favors and the No. 5 pick). However, the Cavs do have some interest in the Magic’s offer of Arron Afflalo, the No. 4 pick and the No. 12 pick.
If Orlando is able to acquire the top spot, the pick is certainly going to be Australian sensation Dante Exum. Utah would select Jabari Parker and the 76ers would select Wiggins.
