NEW YORK (WIBW/CBS) -- Andrew Wiggins is going to Cleveland.

With their third No. 1 pick in four years, the Cavaliers are hoping to add a second star to the roster with Kyrie Irving. They failed to add a star with Anthony Bennett last season, although it's questionable whether there was a star actually available in such a weak draft. Wiggins has been hyped as a top prospect in this draft since his high school days when he became a YouTube and prep sensation.

The 6-8, 200-pound Wiggins averaged 17.1 points and 5.9 rebounds per game in his lone season with the Jayhawks, who finished 25-10 and lost to Stanford in the NCAA Tournament's Round of 32.

After a one-and-done season, Wiggins now heads to Cleveland - which after winning the draft lottery is hoping to win another big sweepstakes, the Decision 2.0. The Cavaliers are reportedly leading contenders to get LeBron James, who opted out of his contract with the Miami Heat days ago.

Wiggins is the son of former NBA guard Mitchell Wiggins, who played parts of six NBA seasons with the Bulls, Rockets and Sixers from 1984-92.
