The No. 1 overall pick in June’s NBA Draft and the best player on the planet have yet to have a conversation. In layman terms, that sounds like a problem for one Andrew Wiggins.
Wiggins has spent the better part of the summer embroiled in trade rumors regarding the Cavaliers and their quest to land Kevin Love. According to Tim Bontemps of the New York Post, Wiggins still has yet to even speak to James since the Akron native decided to return to the Cavs.
And for those who want to try and develop any conspiracy theories about whether or not Wiggins is likely to remain in Cleveland, he said he still hasn’t spoken to James — who also didn’t mention Wiggins in his letter in Sports Illustrated announcing his return to the Cavaliers.
“No. I’m sure he’s busy,” Wiggins said. “I feel like I’m busy, so I am sure he’s busy.”
James has reportedly reached out to all of his Cavs teammates in one way or another, so the writing is on the wall.
