The Philadelphia 76ers are getting an extensive look at mutually interested ex-Kansas guard Andrew Wiggins during a team visit, sources told Yahoo Sports.

Wiggins flew to Philadelphia and arrived Sunday night and is slated to work out for the 76ers on Tuesday, sources said. The 6-foot-8, 200-pounder is also scheduled to get a tour of Philadelphia and other key sites on Monday. The 76ers own the third pick in the NBA draft, and Wiggins would be excited to play for them if selected, a source said.

Wiggins also is scheduled to visit the Cleveland Cavaliers, who have the No. 1 overall pick, on Wednesday, and the Milwaukee Bucks, owners of the second pick overall, on Friday. Those visits with Wiggins are just one day as opposed to the three days he's spending in Philadelphia. The 76ers have not scheduled workouts with other elite draft prospects such as ex-Kansas center Joel Embiid, ex-Duke forward Jabari Parker or Australian guard Dante Exum.

The 76ers also own the 10th overall pick in the draft, which is June 26 in Brooklyn, N.Y. They could have a strong backcourt for the future with Wiggins and 2014 NBA Rookie of the Year Michael Carter-Williams. The 76ers had the NBA’s second-worst record last season at 19-63.

Wiggin's father, former NBA player Mitchell Wiggins, played the 1991-92 season with the 76ers in the final season of his six-year career.
