NBA Store discontinues sale of Andrew Wiggins' Cavaliers jersey
Word spread on Saturday that the NBA has discontinued its sale of Andrew Wiggins' Cavaliers jersey, furthering speculation that the rookie is headed to Minnesota in deal that would potentially send Timberwolves All-Star Kevin Love to Cleveland.
Here's a link to the NBA Store page where the jerseys had been on sale, but have since miraculously been "discontinued."
In July, Love withdrew his name from the U.S. basketball roster and Cavaliers second-year big man Anthony Bennett was pulled from part of the pro-am. The No. 1 overall pick this year signed a deal with the Cavaliers in July but per league rules he can't officially be traded until 30 days after the contract was signed.
In other words, look perhaps for Wiggins' name on the back of a Timberwolves jersey at the NBA Store sometime at the end of August.
