The Cleveland Cavaliers stand armed with the top overall pick in a loaded 2014 NBA Draft class. Potential for future NBA all-stars exists within the 2014 class. But who fits best with the Cavs? We will profile some of the top available talent for the Cavaliers to choose from. Over the remaining days before the 2014 NBA Draft, CSC will feature multiple draft profiles of prospects that could be linked to Cleveland.
CSC’s 2014 NBA Draft Profiles series turns to Kansas center Joel Embiid. Embiid enters the 2014 Draft as our second overall prospect available.

Embiid has drawn comparisons to Tim Duncan and Hakeem Olajuwon after just a few years of organized basketball experience. Can he hit the lofty expectations? Is he worthy of the Cavs’ top pick? Let’s find out.
