Joel Embiid to meet with Cleveland Cavaliers?

Former Kansas center Joel Embiid will reportedly meet with the Cleveland Cavaliers ahead of the NBA Draft.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have arranged to meet with Joel Embiid ahead of next month's NBA Draft, according to reports.

The Cavaliers were awarded the number one overall pick in last week's lottery, with the former Kansas center emerging as an early favourite to join the team.

A source told ESPN that the 20-year-old has agreed to hold off visiting any other NBA side until he has met with Cleveland and undergone a physical with the team.

The seven-foot Cameroonian missed the end of the college season with a stress fracture in his back, but was able to complete a league workout with NBA officials in Los Angeles last week.
