NBA prospect Andrew Wiggins arrived in Philadelphia on Sunday for a workout at an undisclosed date and time with the Sixers.

Wiggins, a 6-foot-8 guard who played one season at Kansas, is expected to be a top-three selection in the NBA draft on June 26 (see our latest mock draft).

Comcast SportsNet's John Clark caught up with Wiggins at Philadelphia International Airport as he arrived.

"I'm excited," Wiggins said when asked how happy he was to be in Philly and try out for the Sixers. "Been looking forward to this time for a long time, so I'm excited."

According to ESPN NBA Insider Chad Ford's mock draft on Tuesday, the Sixers "engaged the Cavs about moving to No. 1" -- and presumably using the first overall pick to take Wiggins. Ford also reported that the "camp" for Wiggins prefers the Sixers as the "best possible fit."

Is that report true?

"I think [the Sixers do] fit my style," Wiggins said, "but I also think Cleveland and Milwaukee do too, so wherever I go."

According to Kansas coach Bill Self, Wiggins is "the best athlete in the draft" and is "going to be off the charts."
