FOX Sports Ohio’s own Sam Amico was on 92.3 The Fan Monday afternoon to talk Cavaliers and said that the Cavaliers are leery of Kansas center Joel Embiid’s back issues. The Cavs have the first overall draft pick in the upcoming NBA draft, have won the draft lottery despite having just a 1.7 percent chance.

Amico says the Cavaliers are more likely to look at one of the two wing players who are part of the supposed "elite three" in this year’s draft. They are Duke’s Jabari Parker and Kansas’ Andrew Wiggins.

Sam’s appearance can be heard on 92.3 The Fan’s website.
