Quantcast

Andrew Wiggins conducted an awkward interview with ESPN yesterday where he addressed the possibility of his not playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers next season:

"I just want to play for a team that wants me. So whichever team wants me I'll play for," he told ESPN's "SportsCenter," from Tarrytown, New York, where he was taking part in a photo shoot for Panini trading cards.



One has to feel for the young Wiggins who was downright giddy about the possibility of playing with LeBron when King James first announced he was coming back to Cleveland.

Now, if he is indeed traded for Kevin Love, Wiggins goes from a potential title contender to a team that is at least two to three years away from even challenging for a playoff spot in the West.

The one positive is he may develop more quickly individually in Minnesota because he will in all likelihood be one of the T-Wolves top offensive options as opposed to deferring to LeBron and Kyrie Irving with the Cavaliers.

To make matters worse, Wiggins has yet to even hear from James with, at the very least, a congratulatory phone call.

All this must be taking a toll on the Kansas product as can be seen in this dunk footage from the rookie photo shoot yesterday.

After he puts away the less than convincing slam his shoulders are slumped, he's looking down at the floor and appears as though he's just going through the motions right now.
