Cavaliers To Workout Michael Kidd-Gilchrist On Wednesday

On Wednesday, the Cleveland Cavaliers will have Kentucky standout Michael Kidd-Gilchrist come to Cleveland for a workout in anticipation of the upcoming NBA Draft on June 28. The Cavaliers currently have possession of the No. 4 overall selection and will be looking to add a player capable of helping out reigning Rookie of the Year, Kyrie Irving.

Kidd-Gilchrist may be the perfect candidate to do just that as he and Irving both played together at St. Patrick's in Elizabeth, New Jersey, where the two helped the school win the State Prep title.

Ultimately, Kidd-Gilchrist may not be available at No. 4 as many outlets have projected him to be selected by the Charlotte Bobcats at No. 2, who he worked out with on Monday. During the workout, he fell and apparently hurt his back, but he is expected to be fine for Wednesday.
