The Cleveland Cavaliers selected Kansas forward Andrew Wiggins with the No. 1 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft.

With their third No. 1 pick in four years, the Cavaliers are hoping to add a second star to the roster with Kyrie Irving. They failed to add a star with Anthony Bennett last season, although it's questionable whether there was a star actually available in such a weak draft. Wiggins has been hyped as a top prospect in this draft since his high school days when he became a YouTube and prep sensation.

CBSSports.com's Matt Moore loves the pick for the Cavs:

The 6-8, 200-pound Wiggins averaged 17.1 points and 5.9 rebounds per game in his lone season with the Jayhawks, who finished 25-10 and lost to Stanford in the NCAA Tournament's Round of 32.

Wiggins is the son of former NBA guard Mitchell Wiggins, who played parts of six NBA seasons with the Bulls, Rockets and Sixers from 1984-92.
