Andrew Wiggins, the Sixers’ top target in the 2014 NBA Draft, will work out for the team in Philadelphia on Monday, June 16, according to ESPN’s Chad Ford.

Wiggins, who spent a single season at Kansas after a highly-hyped high school career, is a consensus top-three pick in the stacked 2014 Draft, and seems to possess true superstar potential.

The Sixers have had Wiggins atop their big board all season, and the team has reportedly had conversations with Cleveland about obtaining the first overall pick in order to ensure Wiggins’ selection.

Barring any trades the Cavaliers and the Bucks will both select before the Sixers on draft day, and thus have the opportunity to snag the freshman phenom first.

According to Ford, Wiggins worked out for the Bucks in Santa Clara on Friday afternoon, and will work out for them again in Milwaukee next Friday. He will also work out in Cleveland for the Cavaliers on Wednesday.

The Cavaliers, who worked out potential top pick Joel Embiid earlier in the week and will work out Jabari Parker next Friday, will have a big decision to make come draft day. Who the Sixers select at three will depend largely on how the top two picks shake out, which makes these upcoming prospect workouts of extreme importance.
