Wiggins to Minnesota by end of this week?

Dan Barreiro of KFAN 100.3 in Minneapolis began the weekend by suggesting that Wolves-Cavs trade was progressing. He’s starting your Sunday by saying that Andrew Wiggins could end up in Minnesota by the end of this week.

On the radio this morning, Barreiro has apparently made the claim that a trade will likely be consummated by the end of the coming week, if not sooner. A string of tweets from @InfraRen:

Yes, despite the conflicting media reports that we’ve been hearing for the past few days, it sure sounds like Wiggins is on the table for the Wolves, and as ESPN’s Chris Broussard reported on Friday, Flip Saunders is simply asking for more than just Wiggins and Anthony Bennett.

It sure seems like Saunders is aiming for a draft pick or two to be thrown into a Kevin Love trade, and why not? If LeBron James has really not only requested that the front office acquire Love, but actually reached out to the superstar power forward himself, than it pretty much has to happen for the Cavaliers. LeBron gets what LeBron asks for.

Things seem to be escalating quickly through the weekend and the completion of the Las Vegas Summer League. We’ll keep our ear to the ground and have reaction here at DWW as soon as anything goes down.
