GTC 199: Cavs Select Wiggins
July 2, 2014•29 min
The Cavs selected Kansas Freshman Guard Andrew Wiggins with the first overall pick in the NBA Draft. The Cavs hope he will play alongside Kyrie Irving for many years as the Cavs AllStar agreed to a max, five year extension with the team as free agency got underway. Team USA was ousted from the World Cup in the round of 16 against Belgium. The Gladiators remain hot beating Tampa. And the Indians offense went AWOL on their West Coast swing through Seattle and Los Angeles. It's GameTime!
Hosts: Mike Kresic, Tom Kresic

Some wanted Joel Embiid, but his injuries were just too much of a risk factor for us.
Jabari Parker wanted to play in Milwaukee, so we took the guy that wanted to be here.
Team extends Kyrie to a max deal, 5 years for $90M as soon as Free Agency began on Tuesday.
