NBA Draft 2014: Will Cleveland Cavaliers complete trade with 76ers for top pick?

The Philadelphia 76ers want Andrew Wiggins. Will they get their man?

Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

The Cleveland Cavaliers are just a few hours from being on the clock with the first overall selection in tonight's NBA Draft. The rumors of what they might do with the pick continue to heat up.

It is believed if they keep the pick the choice is between Jabari Parker and Andrew Wiggins. They aren't the only teams that want these players, though, and the Philadelphia 76ers might  be willing to give up a bunch to get Wiggins.

The Cavaliers are apparently asking for multiple picks to move down two spots. I must say I don't necessarily understand this move. Cleveland is already very, very young. Adding three more picks doesn't make sense unless they plan on making another move or two or drafting an international player they can keep overseas for awhile.

It's good that the Cavaliers are keeping their options open, but as we get closer to the draft, I find myself being more and more interested in simply utilizing the pick. Trust your scouts, take the best player.

We will see what actually goes down.
