David Blatt plays down rumours linking Andrew Wiggins with Kevin Love trade

Cleveland Cavaliers coach David Blatt moves to play down rumours suggesting that his team could offer up Andrew Wiggins in a deal to secure Kevin Love.

Cleveland Cavaliers coach David Blatt has played down speculation suggesting that Draft pick Andrew Wiggins could be offered up in a trade deal to bring in Kevin Love.

Reports in the press have stated that new signing LeBron James would like Love to leave the Minnesota Timberwolves and partner him in Cleveland, but Blatt has quashed any talk that top Draft pick Wiggins could be used in a deal.

"Rumors are rumors. That's why they call them rumors," said Blatt, according to the NBA's official website.

"Sooner or later in one's career, you're going to have to deal with it. If he has to deal with it now, then so be it.

"It's summer league. He's learning everything as he goes along."

Wiggins was viewed as the top pick over both Jabari Parker and Joel Embiid, who were selected at second and third respectively last month.
