Former Kansas star Andrew Wiggins might just get some stabilitity to his start in the NBA, at least temporarily. According to reports, the Cleveland Cavaliers are close to signing Wiggins, the No. 1 overall pick by the Cavs in last month’s draft. The deal is expected to happen this week.
On the second day of a two-day series, The Star looks at Overland Park-based Sprint Corp.’s possible merger with T-Mobile US Inc. The deal could mean throwing the Sprint brand under the bus and putting T-Mobile’s flamboyant top executive, John Legere, in charge. Day one: After years of blocked ambitions and dropped subscribers, the top brass at Sprint plot a dicey merger with T-Mobile while its network czars take aim at leapfrogging the competition.
Andrew Wiggins came to summer league to get an early education on the NBA game, from playing against better competition to learning about what his new coach with the Cleveland Cavaliers will demand of him as a pro. The 19-year-old Canadian is also receiving a crash course in the NBA rumor mill. Since he arrived in Las Vegas and found out LeBron James was coming to Cleveland with him, Wiggins has heard his name brought up in possible trade scenarios as the Cavaliers pursue Minnesota All-Star Kevin Love.
