With a trade to Minnesota seemingly imminent, Andrew Wiggins said that he is confident that he can play anywhere.
Days after his former coach Bill Self said that Wiggins would rather play in Minnesota than in Cleveland, the No.1 overall pick in the 2014 NBA played coy. "Whatever happens is out of my control," Wiggins said. "I'm not worrying about it right now. Anywhere, any team," he said. "I can play anywhere." Barring any unexpected developments, Wiggins will be traded to Minnesota after August 23 and should return mid-round fantasy value on a Wolves team that is devoid of scoring options. Aug 12 - 2:01 PM

Kansas coach Bill Self said Andrew Wiggins wants to be traded to the Wolves because it will be better for his long-term future.

"When all this trade stuff started, I talked to Andrew and Andrew told me, 'I hope I get traded,'" Self said. "And I'm like, 'No you don't.' And he said, "Coach, I do. It's better for me, knowing my personality and what I need to do, to go somewhere where I'm forced to be something as opposed to going in there where they're going to be patient with me and I'm going to be a piece." All signs point to Wiggins getting his wish and he'll go to a team with some scoring deficiencies. He's a middle-round fantasy target.

Fanatics, the nation's largest online licensed sports retailer, never made Andrew Wiggins No. 21 Cavs jerseys that fans ordered from the site.

Meier Raivich, a spokesman for Fanatics, said that the site had up until a month after Wiggins signed to deliver the jerseys, but as rumors swirled around Wiggins the company elected to not print the replicas. The standard return policy for Fanatics is that the jersey must be in pristine condition with tags intact. However, fans that ordered, and received Wiggins jerseys before all the hoopla started, will be able to return their worn jerseys, sans tags, for a full refund.

Andrew Wiggins was unaware of the agreed upon trade sending him to Minnesota until Thursday morning, according to Tim McCormick of ESPN.

If true, it is a bit shocking and disappointing that the Cavaliers would agree on a trade involving Wiggins and not notify him until after it's been leaked to the media. Many have already suggested that the move to Minnesota may be good for Wiggins, and perhaps this is further evidence that it will be.

Updating a previous report, the NBA store did not discontinue Andrew Wiggins' Cavs jersey, they simply sold out.

A league spokesman described that there is a temporary period on the site, before a sold out item is pulled, where it is reflected as "discontinued." The league said this is the case for all sold out items. So apparently the discontinued wording was merely an unfortunate coincidence, but it still seems that Cleveland fans should hold off on buying their Wiggins jerseys until we see how the pieces are moved in a Kevin Love deal.

Andrew Wiggins said he still hasn't talked to LeBron James.

"No. I’m sure he’s busy," Wiggins said. "I feel like I’m busy, so I am sure he’s busy." It's still one of the stranger stories for any No. 1 draft pick in any sport as Wiggins is likely to have to wait two months before he finds out where he's playing next season. At this point, it would be a surprise to see him play next to LeBron James.

In an interview with SportsCenter on Sunday morning Andrew Wiggins stated, "I just want to play for a team that wants me."

It's not very often that a No. 1 overall pick, touted as a potential superstar is the subject of numerous trade rumors before even playing in a regular season game, but this is the situation that we have arrived at. Wiggins will have much more opportunity on a rebuilding Timberwolves roster, and barring an unforeseen turn of events, that's exactly where he will be playing.
Aug 3 - 11:21 AM

Andrew Wiggins has not yet been informed by the Cavaliers of a potential trade sending him to Minnesota in exchange for Kevin Love.

"As of now, Wiggins anticipates remaining a Cavalier," one source close to the rookie said. This doesn't mean that Wiggins won't be traded, but rather, the Cavs are delaying officially letting him know. There's also still time, as Wiggins cannot be traded until August 23. With Anthony Bennett being held out of pickup games, Kevin Love withdrawing from the FIBA World Cup, the NBA temporarily discontinuing the sale of Wiggins' Cavs jerseys, and Timberwolves' owner Glen Taylor saying that a trade is "likely" to go down by August 23 or 24; it would be shocking to not see this pan out when the moratorium on a Wiggins trade is lifted at the end of the month.

The NBA store has discontinued Andrew Wiggins' Cavs jersey.

It's not a surprise to see the NBA put a halt on the No.1 pick's jersey because he's almost certainly on his way to Minnesota in a deal for Kevin Love. If he does wind up in Minnesota, there's a good chance he'll be the first or second scoring option in his first season. He'll be worth a pick in the late-middle rounds of drafts.
Aug 2 - 5:12 PM

The Cleveland Cavaliers announced on Thursday the signing of number one overall pick Andrew Wiggins.

The most notable ramification of the signing is that Wiggins cannot be traded for 30 days. He remains the biggest trade chip in a potential offer for Kevin Love, but for now the hypothetical deal will have to be placed on hold. The Cavaliers also signed their second-round pick Joe Harris, but per league policy, contract details were not released.
Jul 24 - 4:15 PM

The Cavs expect to receive Andrew Wiggins' signed contract on Thursday.

That will start the clock which won't allow the Cavs to trade him for 30 days. They are obviously positioning themselves to make a move based on Tuesday's deal of acquiring three non-guaranteed deals in exchange for Carrick Felix, so Wiggins could wind up on the Wolves. Of course, they're saying Wiggins isn't available.
Jul 23 - 4:04 PM

The Cavaliers are set to sign a standard two-year rookie deal with Andrew Wiggins, according to the Associated Press.

The deal will pay Wiggins $5.5 million next season and contain two extra years of team options, according to a source familiar with negotiations. While the signing would prevent the Cavs from dealing the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft for 30 days, Cleveland could still come to an agreement on a deal that would send Wiggins to the Timberwolves for Kevin Love and then execute the deal after the 30 days are up.

Andrew Wiggins has not been made available to the Wolves in a trade for Kevin Love, according to the News Herald.

There are about a half a dozen reports saying the contrary and with LeBron James playing a general manager-like role saying he's intrigued by adding Love, those trade rumors aren't going to stop. The Cavs are expected to sign Wiggins soon, which would affect their cap space, but not really any possible deal.

The Cavaliers are expected to sign Andrew Wiggins to a rookie-scale contract in the coming week, according to ESPN's Brian Windhorst.

Wiggins can't officially be traded for 30 days after signing his contract, but that's not expected to impact potential trade talks with the Wolves for Kevin Love. It remains uncertain whether the Cavs would even agree to part with Wiggins in such a deal. Cleveland likely would have already signed Wiggins if they weren't exploring creative ways to use their remaining salary-cap space to fill out their roster with minor moves.

Andrew Wiggins has not been made available to the Wolves, according to CSNNW.com.

The Cavs are not moving from their asking price on Kevin Love and on the surface it seems like they're the ones holding up the deal. If the Cavs really do want to win now, it may behoove them to get a deal done. Wiggins would obviously have more fantasy value on another team.
