Andrew Wiggins is expected to work out with the Wolves later this week.

The Wolves already have Kevin Martin, Corey Brewer, Zach LaVine and Robbie Hummel working out, and all of them could be fighting for minutes with Wiggins. The No. 1 pick of the 2014 draft is expected to start and serves as a risky pick in the middle of fantasy drafts.

Andrew Wiggins' high school coach Rob Fulford said that Wiggins could "care less what LeBron James thinks of him."

"I think this whole process with the trade rumors, he could care less," said Fulford. "That kid just wants to play basketball. The fact that LeBron never reached out to him, Andrew could care less what LeBron James thinks of him." Wiggins had one of the stranger routes to the NBA for an extremely highly touted No. 1 overall pick, but the drama is now behind him, and he can start his career in Minnesota. Wiggins will have plenty of opportunity on a rebuilding Timberwolves team, and he profiles as a solid mid-round selection in this year's fantasy drafts.

Coach Flip Saunders scouted Andrew Wiggins and said he's the most ready-made, two-way player in the 2014 draft class.

Considering how the Wolves don't really have any guard or wing who can create in isolation, Wiggins is a good bet to start in his rookie season. Saunders also said Wiggins is capable of guarding any position except center, which also could help him get playing time. As long as you're not reaching too much, Wiggins could make a big impact for your fantasy team in his first season.

Andrew Wiggins has officially been traded to the Wolves.

The Wiggins era didn't last long in Cleveland and the NBA stopped selling his jersey quickly. He'll wear No. 22 with the Wolves and is a good bet to crack the starting lineup given their lack of playmaking scorers. Wiggins is a solid mid-round target in fantasy leagues, as long as you're aware he could have trouble with efficiency early in his career.

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.

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.

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.
