The Cleveland Cavaliers' Andrew Wiggins rookie year

As the first overall pick in the draft, Wiggins entered the NBA with high expectations. He was seen as a potential franchise player and was tasked with making an immediate impact for the Cavaliers.

 Despite being drafted by the Cavaliers, Wiggins' future with the team was uncertain due to persistent trade rumors involving him in potential deals for established NBA stars, most notably Kevin Love of the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Wiggins showcased his talent during the NBA Summer League, where he displayed his scoring ability and athleticism. His performances further solidified his status as one of the top rookies in his draft class. 

In August 2014, Wiggins was traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves as part of a blockbuster deal that sent Kevin Love to the Cavaliers. The trade provided Wiggins with a fresh start and an opportunity to play a prominent role with the Timberwolves. 

With the Timberwolves, Wiggins emerged as one of the top rookies in the NBA. He averaged 16.9 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 2.1 assists per game, showcasing his scoring ability and versatility on the court. 

Wiggins quickly earned a starting role with the Timberwolves and became a focal point of their offense. He displayed maturity beyond his years and showed flashes of the potential that made him the first overall pick in the draft. 

Wiggins' impressive rookie season earned him the NBA Rookie of the Year award, cementing his status as one of the league's brightest young talents. He became the second consecutive Canadian-born player to win the award after Damian Lillard. 

Wiggins' rookie season laid the foundation for what would be a successful NBA career. His scoring ability, athleticism, and potential for growth made him a key building block for the Timberwolves' future.
