Do the Cavs still take him? Do they take Wiggins or Parker? Big men with injury history scare a lot of teams nowadays.

Update: It's a foot fracture. He's having surgery tomorrow.

As Bill Simmons just remarked, Bucks/Sixers are fuked. Maybe Sixers try to trade up for #1 overall, but Cleveland would be less willing to bite now given the decrease in value the #3 pick would now have.

Have to pass on him if he broke his foot.

In a span of 1 year he has had knee, back and foot problems. This dude gonna drop out of the top 5. Everyone still remembers Greg "1 game per year" Oden.

If the Cavs keep the pick and take Wiggins, that means the Bucks would take Parker. So that means only the Sixers are fuked really. They can't take Exum because they already have MCW. So either they roll they dice with Embiid or find an unlikely trade partner. It really sucks for Philly because it seemed like they tanked for a good draft pick and now it's uncertain

This kinda fuks up everyone's draft board.

Seriously. Embiid could slip to Boston or LA now and Exum rises.

This is the best news Cleveland has had in a long time. They won't fuk this pick up anymore by taking Embiid

Dang, I was hoping Cleveland would go full retard and take him. I remember several CLE fans here saying his potential made it worth it.

Too many examples of why you don't risk signing big men with recurring injury problems. I think they take Wiggins since they have Deng; Lebron ain't coming to Cleveland either lol

Deng is a free agent.

This guy could have BUST in big red letters written on his forehead and the Cavs would still draft him anyways

would still take him at #7 if he slips that far (srs)

Of course you would. At 7 a kind of injured big man is fine.

At #1 overall? Rofl...

It's obvious he "injured" himself in order to get drafted to the Lakers

LOL bro... that's not even a question. No way

Don't go full retard. You probably saw a couple of fans say to take him... that doesn't mean everyone wants him. 99% of people I speak with didn't want the Cavs to take him prior to this foot injury. Perception ain't reality bruh.

Not sure who the Cavs take.. Parker and Wiggins both have question marks and work to do. Not sure where they'll stand as far as NBA elites go in a couple years.

Yeah like Kryie Irving or LeBron

Well, Looks like Wigggins is going #1 now.

I still believe in Embiid. Hopefully he heals up perfectly. Even with this injury, i cant see him dropping out of the top 3. Too much upside.

Looks a lot of people think Wiggins is going #1 now, but from what I've read Parker might be the favorite to go first. Embiid might go to the Celtics or Lakers who may be able to afford a riskier pick. There is no way Embiid goes first, Cavs have made a couple reaches(Bennet, Waiters) but I don't think they could really phuck up now with Wiggins or Parker.

Cavs will go full retard and still draft him. If not, then i think he falls to the Celtics.

He's going to the celtics or lakers now. Only 2 franchises that can risk/afford wasting a pick on him with all the talent in this draft. Crazy how this worked out

If the Bucks draft Embiid I will ****ing lose it. I'm hoping for Parker.

No way in hell can the Lakers afford to "waste" this pick. They are fuked if they get him and he's a bust. The C's have lots of picks in the next couple years but the Lakers don't. Philly can afford to waste the pick on him however since they already have a good future, along with another lottery pick this draft, but the Lakers definitely can't mess this one up.
