Cavaliers sign Andrew Wiggins; No. 1 pick can’t be traded for 30 days
CLEVELAND – The Cavaliers have signed No. 1 overall draft pick Andrew Wiggins, a contract that prevents him from being traded for 30 days.
Wiggins has been linked to a possible blockbuster trade with Minnesota for All-Star forward Kevin Love. But any deal now involving Wiggins can’t be finalized for at least 30 days.
The Cavs had been reluctant to include Wiggins in a package for Love, but the team has softened its stance and may be willing to part with the former Kansas standout.
Cleveland is interested in bringing in Love to form a “Big 3” with LeBron James and Kyrie Irving. That trio would make the Cavs an overwhelming favourite in the Eastern Conference.
