Draft prospect Andrew Wiggins is selected as the first pick at the event, having caught the eye of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have used their first pick in the NBA Draft to select rising youngster Andrew Wiggins.

The Cavaliers are now operating under new boss David Blatt, with the team looking to make a statement at the event, possibly in order to impress prospective free agent LeBron James.

Wiggins has long been touted as one of the Draft's most exciting prospects and was recently elevated to the rumoured title of number one pick after Joel Embiid suffered a broken foot.

The Canadian youngster has recently been playing college basketball with the Kansas Jayhawks.
