Cleveland Cavaliers sign Andrew Wiggins, is deal for Kevin Love next?

July 24, 2014

The Cleveland Cavaliers have signed their 2014 NBA Draft picks, Andrew Wiggins and Joe Harris, Cavaliers General Manager David Griffin announced today.

Other outlets have been reporting that the Cavaliers are looking to make a deal for Minnesota star power forward Kevin Love. Wiggins would be the Cavs' primary trade bait, but of course, he needed to first be signed to a contract.

Now that Wiggins is under contract, Cleveland would have to wait 30 days before any such trade was completed.

It's no guarantee that the 'Wolves choose to deal Love to the Cavs, as both Chicago and Golden State are lining up for the big man's services as well. The Golden State trade is perhaps the least likely to occur because the Warriors have been reluctant to part with 2-guard Klay Thompson.

Wiggins was the first overall pick in the June draft. An early entry candidate from Kansas University, Wiggins, 19, was named Big 12 Freshman of the Year and First-Team All-League in his only year at Kansas.  In 35 contests with the Jayhawks last year, the 6-8, 194-pound guard averaged 17.1 points, 5.9 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 1.0 block in 32.8 minutes per game. In four games during the 2014 NBA Summer League, Wiggins averaged a team-high 15.5 points, 3.5 rebounds, 1.3 steals and 1.5 blocks in 29.9 minutes per game.

Harris was selected 33rd overall after playing four years at Virginia where he was named Second Team All-ACC as a senior and First Team All-ACC as a junior. The 6-6, 225-pound guard averaged 12.6 points and 3.8 rebounds in 30.3 minutes for his career at Virginia (135 games). In four games during the 2014 NBA Summer League, Harris averaged 7.8 points, 1.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 24.6 minutes per game.
