CLEVELAND – A person familiar with the negotiations says the Cavaliers will sign No. 1 overall pick Andrew Wiggins to a contract, an imminent deal that would prevent any potential trade from being completed for 30 days.
Wiggins has been linked to a possible trade with Minnesota for All-Star forward Kevin Love. The person familiar with the talks says he will sign with Cleveland as early as Wednesday.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on Tuesday on condition of anonymity because the team is not commenting on its plans.
The Cavs and Timberwolves have had ongoing discussions about a trade for Love since before the draft. The Timberwolves have always insisted that Wiggins be involved in any package, a stipulation the Cavaliers have resisted.
