CLEVELAND – Andrew Wiggins, the first player drafted this year, has an NBA home. Maybe a temporary one.

The Cleveland Cavaliers signed him Thursday, a long-term deal that pays him $5.5 million this season and prevents him from being traded for 30 days.

Wiggins has been linked to a possible trade with Minnesota for All-Star forward Kevin Love. The teams can reach an agreement on a trade, but nothing can be finalized until late August.

Cleveland also signed second-round pick Joe Harris, a guard who played at Virginia.

Harris, who is from Chelan, has a three-year deal for $2.75 million, with the first two years guaranteed, ESPN reported.

Notes

• The Dallas Mavericks have signed point guard Jameer Nelson, 32, a former All-Star who was waived by Orlando on June 30. Nelson reportedly has a one-year deal for $2.7 million, with a player option for a second season.

• Forward Blake Griffin of the Los Angeles Clippers has withdrawn from playing for the U.S. national team this summer, saying he wants to dedicate all his energy to improving and preparing for the upcoming league season.

Dale Schlueter, a Trail Blazers center for their inaugural 1970-71 season, died at his Portland home after a battle with cancer. He was 68.

Schlueter, who was born in Tacoma, played for six teams in 10 pro seasons, averaging 5.3 points and 5.2 rebounds.
