The Cavaliers insist rookie swingman Andrew Wiggins has not been offered in a possible trade for Minnesota Timberwolves power forward Kevin Love.

No one involved would guarantee it wouldn’t happen at a later date, but for now the Cavaliers will proceed in Love negotiations without using the mercurial Wiggins as a trade chip, a source told The News-Herald.

Another source told The News-Herald last week the Cavaliers would be willing to deal the No. 1 pick in the 2014 draft in a trade for Love — and that might still happen. ESPN the Magazine’s Chris Broussard and USA Today’s Jeff Zillgitt also reported the same thing. - CLICK HERE to read full story.

Imagine being Andrew Wiggins.

Imagine being 19 years old, the No. 1 overall pick in the NBA Draft by the Cleveland Cavaliers. Imagine learning your new teammate is LeBron James, the best in the world. Imagine knowing Kyrie Irving and others are also on the team. Imagine all of your basketball dreams coming true.

Then imagine hearing you may already be on the way out. Imagine seeing your name in trade rumors, day after day, minute after minute. You haven't even played an NBA game or gotten a chance to run with the best of the best. Already, you may be feeling something less than wanted.

Remember, at 19, you really are still just a kid. - CLICK HERE to read full story.

No. 1 overall draft pick Andrew Wiggins is expected to sign a contract with the Cavaliers this week, according to a report from ESPN.

The story falls in line with previous reports from FOX Sports Ohio, which indicated the Cavs were attempting to make some other moves to maximize the salary cap prior to signing Wiggins.

According to sources in the ESPN story, the Cavs "are merely exploring options for using their estimated $1.4 million in remaining cap space before signing Wiggins to a contract that will pay him in the neighborhood of $5.5 million as a rookie." - CLICK HERE to read full story.
