CLEVELAND (AP) — Andrew Wiggins will sign his rookie contract with the Cavaliers. It's still not clear if he'll play for them.
A person familiar with the negotiations says the Cavs will sign the No. 1 overall pick to his deal, an agreement that would prevent any potential trade involving the small forward from being completed for 30 days.
The Minnesota Timberwolves and Cavaliers have been discussing a potential deal that would send All-Star forward Kevin Love to the Cavaliers for Wigging, Anthony Bennett and other pieces. The person familiar with the talks says Wiggins will sign with Cleveland as early as Wednesday. The person spoke to The Associated Press on Tuesday on condition of anonymity because the team is not commenting on its plans.

McIlroy is poised to be golf's next big thing PDF Print E-mail

HOYLAKE, England (AP) — Golf has been looking for the next big star the last five years, and Rory McIlroy is the most obvious candidate.

With his name on the claret jug and his Irish eyes now focused on a green jacket, McIlroy took a big step toward the career Grand Slam with four dominant days at Royal Liverpool. He looks unbeatable at times like this. Boy Wonder has it all — skill, strength, shot-making. Throw in a great week with the putter and it's not a fair fight.

But being the next big star is not the same as being the next Tiger Woods.

Or even another Jack Nicklaus.

Nicklaus and Woods are defined by the majors, so it's natural for the 25-year-old McIlroy to be linked with them after his two-shot victory in the British Open. Nicklaus and Woods were the only players younger than McIlroy to win three legs of the Grand Slam.

Tigers lean on experienced trainer Kevin Rand PDF Print E-mail

DETROIT (AP) — Dave Dombrowski could count on one hand the number of medical-related employees baseball teams had when his career began.

Now, the Detroit Tigers president and general manager almost needs two hands.

The Tigers lean on Kevin Rand in and out of season to keep players as healthy as possible to compete for championships. The team's medical director and head athletic trainer leads a six-person staff that gets assists from interns.

"There was just a trainer when I first started," said Dombrowski, who is in his 34th season of professional baseball. "You might have nine people doing what one person did before. It's a huge responsibility and we're fortunate to have Kevin because he does a great job."

Dillon looks for strong NASCAR Nationwide finish PDF Print E-mail

GRIMES, Iowa (AP) — Chase Elliott's brilliant start in the NASCAR Nationwide series has overshadowed the steady if unspectacular debut of fellow rookie Ty Dillon.

Dillon believes he's finally ready to push Elliott in the standings.

Dillon scored his first top-five finish in 18 races last weekend at Chicagoland Speedway. Dillon, driving the No. 3 car his brother Austin piloted to the Nationwide title last season, is 30 points behind Elliott heading into this weekend's race in Indianapolis.

"If Chase Elliott wasn't having the season he's having, we'd be having one of the most talked about, spectacular rookie seasons there's been in a while," Dillon said Tuesday during a promotional stop in Iowa ahead of the Aug. 2 race at Iowa Speedway. "But the pressure he's put on us by having a great start — his team has done an awesome job — is really pushing us to want to be better. And we've really worked on that."
