There were high expectations surrounding Wiggins as the number one pick, with many analysts and fans anticipating him to make an immediate impact in the NBA due to his athleticism and scoring ability.

Despite being drafted by the Cavaliers, Wiggins' tenure with the team was short-lived. In August 2014, he was traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves as part of the deal that brought Kevin Love to Cleveland.

Wiggins showcased his talent and potential during the NBA Summer League prior to his rookie season. He displayed his scoring ability and athleticism, giving fans a glimpse of what he could bring to the NBA.

During his rookie season with the Cavaliers, Wiggins put together a solid performance, averaging 16.9 points, 4.6 rebounds, 2.1 assists, and 1.0 steals per game. He showed flashes of brilliance throughout the season, demonstrating his scoring prowess and defensive abilities.

Wiggins' impressive play earned him consideration for the NBA Rookie of the Year award. Although he ultimately finished as the runner-up to Nikola Mirotic of the Chicago Bulls, Wiggins' rookie season was widely viewed as a success.

Throughout his rookie season, Wiggins underwent a significant learning curve as he adjusted to the speed and physicality of the NBA game. He worked on refining his skills and adapting to the demands of playing at the highest level of basketball.

Wiggins' rookie season provided a solid foundation for his future growth and development in the NBA. It gave him valuable experience and confidence as he continued to establish himself as one of the league's promising young talents.
