The Cavs and Timberwolves have been discussing a Love trade since the return of LeBron James, with sources saying that Minnesota is insistent on getting Wiggins back in any deal that sends Love to Cleveland. Once Wiggins signs, though, league rules stipulate that the Cavs must wait 30 days before trading him. ESPN.com

Wiggins finally addressed the rumors on Friday night, shyly smiling as he tiptoed through the minefields. "I let my agent and my support system really handle that," he said. "I love playing the game of basketball, I know the NBA is a business. ... If it's someone important [asking me about the rumors], like your family or friends, you tell them what you know. If it's not, it goes through one ear and out the other. ... I just know what you know. I just see what you see on TV. That's about it." Sports Illustrated

On top of that, the Cavs landed another No. 1 overall draft pick in Andrew Wiggins, an athletic swingman with a major upside. He only adds to the Cavs' high hopes. But Wiggins has been the subject of trade rumors -- frequently mentioned as a potential trading chip to bring Minnesota Timberwolves star Kevin Love to Cleveland. Irving offered no thoughts on that particular topic. "This whole free-agent period has been a whirlwind, so many rumors, so many guys with inside sources," Irving said. "Until it happens and I get a call from our GM ... other than that, I haven't considered it." FoxSports.com

As Irving mentioned, his next stop is Team USA training camp, which tips off July 28 in Las Vegas. He is one of 19 players battling for a spot on the 12-man roster. Beyond that, it's just a whole lot of being excited that LeBron James is on the team. "It's going to be a pleasure to learn from him," Irving said. "Right now, he's focused on his family. It's time to enjoy the offseason." FoxSports.com

There is no clear indication yet of the Cavs’ plans. It was only a week ago that James announced his return to the Cavaliers through his first-person essay as told Sports Illustrated. That very day was Wiggins’ debut at Summer League. Since then, Wiggins has been at the center of a constant trade rumors. “It’s been crazy, but it’s all positive stuff,” Wiggins said. “With LeBron coming back, there’s nothing negative about that; the best player in the world coming to your team. The organization is on the rise right now.” NBA.com
