Monday (Wiggins reportedly to sign with Cavs soon) edition: Wha' Happened?

Star Tribune Sports - Mon, 07/21/2014 - 20:04
One of the curious parts of any proposed Kevin Love-to-Cleveland deal is slated to change this week because the Cavaliers are reportedly going to sign No. 1 pick Andrew Wiggins to his rookie contract. This can impact a Love/Wiggins deal in many ways. First off, per NBA rules, Wiggins cannot be traded for 30 days after signing his rookie contract. Second, once he is signed, he will have a defined NBA salary cap number that will impact any trade as well. So is this good news or bad news when it comes to a potential trade between the Wolves and the Cavs? Well, it depends on how you look at it. Even if Wiggins is signed, the teams could agree to a deal in principle behind-the-scenes and wait to make it official once the 30 days have passed. So Wiggins signing certainly doesn’t make a deal impossible. That said, it might have been more convenient had he signed immediately after the draft, since his 30 days would be pretty close to over by now. The complication is probably more in the perception. Let’s say Wiggins signs on Friday; it’s going to be late August before he could officially be traded — and late August before the resolution of any movement with Love. The longer this plays out, the worse it is for both teams. We also have to consider the possibility that Wiggins signing is an indication that Cleveland is not going to trade him. … And we also must wonder whether leaking information that they plan to sign him this week is an attempt to speed up trade talks. Until he signs, or at least until we have definitive word that the Wolves and Cavs are serious about a deal, everything is status quo.
