Cleveland Cavaliers have not offered Andrew Wiggins to Minnesota Timberwolves

Ever since LeBron James announced his decision to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers,  the franchise’s No. 1 pick, Andrew Wiggins, has been a staple in trade rumors.

It’s not exactly a well-kept secret that James wants to play with Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love, and it’s also understood that Cleveland would likely have to part Wiggins to acquire the all-star big man.

However, with as many rumors as Wiggins has been involved in, the former Kansas product has yet to actually be offered in a deal, according to Sam Amico of Fox Sports Ohio.

This report from Amico is especially interesting when considering that Cleveland signed Wiggins to his rookie contract on Thursday, which means he can’t be traded for the next 30 days.

Still, as Amico notes, all of this doesn’t mean the Cavs haven’t talked about trading Wiggins with the Timberwolves. In fact, ESPN’s Chris Broussard reported last week that Cleveland has discussed sending Minnesota a super-package with Wiggins as the focal piece.

The Minnesota Timberwolves and Cleveland Cavaliers have discussed a blockbuster trade centered on Kevin Love and the league’s past two No. 1 draft picks, league sources told ESPN.

In an attempt to add Love, a three-time All-Star, the Cavaliers are willing to part with Andrew Wiggins and Anthony Bennett.

While Wiggins reportedly hasn’t been officially offered and a deal involving him becomes trickier now that he’s signed, the offer reported by Broussard is intriguing to Minnesota and a trade could still get done at some point.
