Andrew Wiggins signs contract with Cavs, cannot be traded for 30 days
Tony Dejak, Associated Press
Andrew Wiggins signed his rookie contract on Thursday. In any other year, that would simply be a formality. Not this year.
Now that Wiggins has signed, he cannot be traded for 30 days. Wiggins is the centerpiece of a potential deal for Kevin Love, but now the trade cannot be executed for 30 days.
The Cavs, however, were forced to sign him in order to trade him because he held no monetary value otherwise, making a trade including him extremely difficult. Wiggins will earn $5.5 million next season, the full 120 percent allowed under the league’s rookie scale.
The team also announced second-round pick Joe Harris also signed. Harris signed a three-year deal, with the first two years guaranteed, a league source confirmed.
