Factory Lines is an assembling of Cleveland sports headlines that appears Monday through Friday. Have any tips? Tweet me @DukeofNick to let me know.
Andrew Wiggins’ career with the Cleveland Cavaliers consists of two games in the Vegas summer league, but any fan would be crazy to admit they don’t like what they see from the 19-year-old rookie.
The Kansas product displayed some dazzling moments in his first exhibition, and followed that up with a behind-the-back, 360-degree dunk in warmups before game two. Yes, that second mention is basically “talking about practice,” but the novelty of marveling over Wiggins’ freakish skills is far from being old.

The truth of the matter is that Wiggins wasn’t as sharp Sunday against the Spurts. He shot 3-of-11 from field while netting 13 points. Disappointed? Go ahead and watch that dunk again.
• And while we’re on the Cavs, owner Dan Gilbert spoke out about that famous flight to south Florida last Sunday.
• If you’ve got an uber amount of time to kill today, check out Bill Simmons’ column on James returning to northeast Ohio.
• Francisco Lindor played in the MLB Future’s Game Sunday, and had an uneventful day. The event marked Lindor’s third time playing in the contest, and he’s only 20. The blog over at Wahoo’s On First examined when Lindor might finally get his call to the big leagues.
