LAS VEGAS (AP) — Andrew Wiggins was only drafted three weeks ago and he’s already dealing with trade rumors.
The NBA’s No. 1 overall pick has been playing at summer league this week while his name has been linked to Cleveland’s pursuit of Minnesota All-Star Kevin Love. The teams have had discussions, but so far the Cavaliers have refused to part with Wiggins to get a deal done.
Cavaliers coach David Blatt says it’s all part of the learning experience for Wiggins. He calls all the talk “just rumors” and says he sees no need to talk to Wiggins about it because “it doesn’t mean anything.”
Wiggins had 21 points and five rebounds in a game against Houston on Thursday night.
