Description: Timberwolves guard Andrew Wiggins looks like he will begin the season coming off the bench.
Insight: With Kevin Martin locked in as the starting shooting guard, Wiggins may need to prove he can play the small forward position as well, for owners to trust him on their fantasy teams. He is currently projected to go in the ninth round, but there are questions to how much playing rtime he is going to receive. We still love this kid's potential, but drafting him in the ninth round may be a little too rich for our taste.

Description: The three-team trade between the Minnesota Timberwolves, Cleveland Cavaliers and Philadelphia 76ers is complete and 2014 No. 1 overall pick Andrew Wiggins is now a member of Minnesota.
Insight: Wiggins' fantasy value gets a nice boost from the trade, as he'll have to carry a much larger offensive burden than he would have had in Cleveland. Minnesota's starting lineup to begin the season will likely include Ricky Rubio, Kevin Martin, Wiggins, Thaddeus Young and Nikola Pekovic.

Description: The Cavaliers have signed G/F Andrew Wiggins - the No. 1 pick in this year's NBA draft.
Insight: This doesn't mean he's going the play in Cleveland next season, only that the team can't trade him for 30 days. He's been rumored to be part of a deal to pry Kevin Love out of Minnesota.

Description: The Cavaliers selected University of Kansas guard Andrew Wiggins with the No. 1 pick in Thursday night's NBA Draft.
Insight: The Cavs have had the No. 1 pick the last two years and have taken a player from Canada both times. Wiggins averaged 17.4 ppg as a Jayhawk last season and was also strong on the defensive end. With Wiggins on board, it's possible Cleveland will look to trade Dion Waiters, who plays the same position as Wiggins.

Description: For the third time in the last four seasons, the Cavaliers will have the first pick in the NBA Draft.
Insight: The Cavs had only a 1.7 percent chance of landing the top pick. Last year they used their selection on UNLV forward Anthony Bennett. This time around, Kansas guard Andrew Wiggins and Duke forward Jabari Parker would both make sense for the Cavaliers at No. 1, though there's also a chance we could see them go with Kansas center Joel Embiid. Milwaukee will pick second with Philadelphia rounding out the top three.
