LeBron James announced his intentions to return to Cleveland in a heartfelt letter exclusively published on SI.com. In the letter, James specifically mentions how excited he is to work with Cleveland players Kyrie Irving, Tristan Thompson, Dion Waiters and Anderson Varejao. There's no mention, however, of #1 overall draft picks Andrew Wiggins and Anthony Bennett...which raised quite a few eyebrows.
Also - VERY interesting that LeBron didn't mention Wiggins or Bennett in that mini-essay. Makes me wonder if Kevin Love is the next domino.

In theory, the Cavs would deal Wiggins (and possibly Bennett) to Minnesota for Kevin Love...who would reportedly re-sign in Cleveland now that LeBron is there. There's nothing to this other than speculation at the moment (aside from Love's willingness to end up with the Cavs), and it's worth noting that Wiggins' reps don't think a trade is in the works:
