No 1 Draft Andrew Wiggins to trade with Kevin Love?

Although forward Andrew Wiggins was drafted by the Cleveland Cavaliers out of the University of Kansas with the first overall pick in this year’s NBA draft, it looks like he’s not going to set foot on a basketball court with the team. This is because the Cavaliers have already agreed to trade him to the Minnesota Timberwolves for forward Kevin Love. Cleveland will be sending Love to the Timberwolves along with a 2015 first-round draft choice and Anthony Bennett.

However, while both clubs have come to an agreement over the trade, they can’t officially announce the deal until August 23 since NBA rules state Wiggins can’t be traded until at least a month after signing his contract. Either team can pull out of the deal up until that point. In addition, the trade could also become bigger with more players or teams getting involved in it.

Female soccer players: “FIFA is sexist and discriminatory”

Female international soccer players aren’t too happy with FIFA at the moment and are calling the world’s governing body of soccer both sexist and discriminatory. The women’s beef with Sepp Blatter and company is that they are being forced to play the 2015 Women’s World Cup on pitches with artificial turf. The men, of course, have to play their World Cup matches on grass pitches.

A group of female players has told the press that FIFA’s rule is a form of gender discrimination and it also violates human-rights law as well as the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The players have hired a couple of elite and high-profile law firms to help represent them and their case. These firms are Osler Hoskin and Harcourt out of Canada and Boies Schiller and Flexner LLP of the USA.
