Ever since the Cleveland Cavaliers won this year's draft lottery, there has been speculation that they might trade the No. 1 pick. They've said all the right things about keeping Andrew Wiggins since selecting him, but could he possibly be on the move? USA Today reported that his representatives have been assured otherwise on Wednesday, but Yahoo Sports reported that the Cavs are pursuing a Kevin Love trade and the Minnesota Timberwolves would demand Wiggins in return.

Cleveland is in a tricky spot here. It wants Love to lure James back home, but Love wouldn't stay with the Cavaliers unless he knew James would be with him. If -- and this isn't yet certain -- Cleveland would be willing to part with Wiggins to get Love, the franchise would need to know for sure that Love's presence would be enough to sway James.

Just two years ago, Wiggins was getting James out of his seat at the superstar's skills academy in Las Vegas. Now James is back there, talking with campers, posing with his high school buddies and meeting with the Heat, while Wiggins can only wait and see how this all plays out.
