ESPN Airs Awkward Interview With Cleveland Cavaliers Rookie Andrew Wiggins [Video]

With the first pick in the 2014 NBA draft the Cleveland Cavaliers drafted Andrew Wiggins.

Wiggins has all the tools to be a star in the league. Unfortunately for him, LeBron James came back home and is ready to build a veteran championship team in Cleveland.

As all the rumors continue to foreshadow what seems to be an imminent trade of Wiggins to the Minnesota Timberwolves for power forward Kevin Love, ESPN got to interview the rookie dressed in his Cavaliers jersey for perhaps the last time.

Acknowledging that the NBA is a business he was asked what he would like to see happen to himself amidst all the rumors.

“I just want to play for a team that wants me,” he said. “So whatever team wants me I’ll play for.”

Then he was asked if he thought Cleveland wants him.

“Yea…,” he answered awkwardly. “I hope so.”

Sheesh. Soon he’ll more than likely have a happier interview with his new team and a more certain future. No matter where he ends up, I believe Wiggins has a GREAT career in front of him.
