CLEVELAND -- As they search for a new coach, the Cavaliers are taking a close look at an intriguing player. Kansas centre Joel Embiid worked out Wednesday for the Cavs, who are trying to decide what to do with the No. 1 overall pick in this months NBA draft. The 7-foot Embiid, who has only been playing basketball for a few years, arrived in Cleveland on Tuesday night for his visit, the team confirmed. The Cavs are eager to put Embiid thorough medical physical as there have been concerns about the 18-year-olds back. Embiid missed the tail end of his freshman season with the Jayhawks because of what was described as a stress fracture in his lower back. Embiid did not attend the leagues pre-draft combine last month in Chicago, and his medical records were not released by the school. The Cavs dont want to take any chances with a selection after last years top pick, forward Anthony Bennett, struggled during his first year after undergoing shoulder surgery. Embiid is the first of the top prospects to visit the Cavs, who are expected to meet with Kansas swingman Andrew Wiggins and Duke forward Jabari Parker. "Having fun in Cleveland," Embiid wrote on his Twitter account, with a photo of a Cavaliers T-shirt. In the meantime, the Cavs are in the fourth week of their coaching search. The team has had interviews with at least six known candidates, the most recent being former Cleveland All-Star guard and current Charlotte assistant Mark Price. The Cavs are expected to have a second meeting with Clippers assistant Alvin Gentry, who previously worked with Cleveland general manager David Griffin in Arizona. Ideally, the Cavs would like to have a new coach in place by the June 26 draft, but have not put a timetable on hiring their third coach in three years. Griffin has said he would be open to listening to trade offers for the top pick.

Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston was being investigated for sexual assault, and his Heisman Trophy stock was falling. For a few days, it looked like the BC running back might have a chance to bring home college footballs most prestigious individual honour. Then, Florida prosecutors decided not to bring charges against Winston, removing what was seen as the last impediment to his Heisman candidacy. And Williams was injured in the season finale against Syracuse, finishing with 29 yards in the game -- far short of the almost 190 yards per week he was averaging this season. And that might have been the end of his Heisman chances. "I was more worried about how it was going to affect our bowl chances," Williams said this week after he was announced as one of six Heisman finalists to be invited to the award ceremony on Saturday. "The only opportunity we really missed is being able to get that eighth win against Syracuse. I really wasnt worried about Heisman polls." The nations leading rusher with 175 yards per game and only the 16th player in FBS history to surpass 2,000 yards in a season, Williams was already at a nearby mall shopping for clothes for the Doak Walker Award ceremony when he learned in a text from associate athletic director Barry Gallup that he was a Heisman finalist. Williams won the Doak Walker, which is given to the nations top running back, on Thursday night. Now, he has a side trip to New York for Saturdays Heisman ceremony. "I just feel blessed to have the opportunity to go to the ceremony and be around these other great athletes," Williams said. "Whoever wins it, congratulations to them, because its a monumental achievement." There was a time when running backs routinely brought home the Heisman. They won 11 straight from John Cappelletti in 1973 until Boston Colleges Doug Flutie interruupted the streak in 1984.dddddddddddd. Bo Jackson and Barry Sanders were also good enough to get their names on the trophy along with the quarterbacks and receivers in the 1980s, and four more rushers -- including Ricky Williams -- claimed it in the 90s. But as teams grew more pass-happy in the new millennium, the Heisman has been almost exclusively a quarterbacking prize. Only Reggie Bush and Mark Ingram have broken through against a steady stream of quarterbacks -- 11 in 13 years. Winston is expected to make it 12 of 14 during a season in which he is on pace to break the NCAA record for passer efficiency rating (190.1) and has already set records for yards passing (3,820) and TD passes (38) for a freshman. Williams said he doesnt feel the need to carry the ball for ball-carriers. "I love being a running back. I love representing running backs," he said. "I dont necessarily think its unfair that its been quarterbacks high up in the Heisman contention lately. That position is hard to play. Its hard to be good at it. With the trend toward teams playing spread offences and throwing the ball more, thats one of the things behind it. You have to have a good quarterback." But BC coach Steve Addazio said he would like to see the Heisman voters reward Williams, a senior who served as a teaching assistant for freshman seminar and is writing a novel in his spare time. "Hes a well-rounded guy," Addazio said. "Hes a guy who values and cherishes his education, his opportunity to play major college football, and being part of a team. Hes got a lot of different interests just like a typical college student would have. Hes not just all focused on football. "I think he represents what Boston College stands for. ... If thats the criteria: outstanding football player, a dominant football player, great integrity, a tremendous person and an outstanding student athlete, theyre really important. In this case thats what he stands for." Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
