The Cleveland Cavaliers are now offering No. 1 overall pick Andrew Wiggins in attempts to trade for Minnesota Timberwolves All-Star forward Kevin Love, league sources have confirmed.

The availability of Wiggins could lead to a blockbuster trade that could shift the balance of power in the Eastern Conference and the league as a whole.

The two clubs have been engaged in trade discussions since LeBron James announced he was returning to Cleveland last Friday.

But talks stalled because of the Cavaliers' refusal to include the 19-year-old Wiggins in any trade, as sources said the Timberwolves were unwilling to send Love to Cleveland without receiving the former star Kansas guard in return.

The Braves announced Uggla's release on their official Twitter account Friday, five days after suspending the slumping slugger for what manager Fredi Gonzalez called "an internal matter."

In his fourth season with the Braves, the 34-year-old Uggla was batting .162 with two home runs and 10 RBI in 48 games and 130 at-bats.

NEW YORK -- The NFL will limit the number of underclassmen who can receive evaluations for the draft to five from a single school, although special exceptions will be allowed.

Concerned about the record 107 underclassmen who applied for this year's draft, and with 37 of them not selected, the league's College Advisory Committee developed new guidelines for players considering forfeiting their final years of eligibility.

Kirby Lee/USA TODAY SportsTroy Vincent, who heads the league's football operations, said underclassmen will be advised on their potential as a first- or second-round pick or if they should remain in school.

HOYLAKE, England -- A shot out of play -- on which he still made par -- and a birdie-eagle run had Phil Mickelson thinking about getting back into the tournament.

He'll have to settle for making the cut and needing some help after a 2-under-par 70 at Royal Liverpool on Friday left him at 144, even par, and 5 strokes back of the leaders at the Open Championship.

Warren Little/R&A/Getty ImagesPhil Mickelson was pleased with his second-round 70 at The Open Championship.

"I played really well today, but there were a couple of loose shots," Mickelson said. "The drive on 10, the missed putt on 7 ended up costing me another one on 8. And I ended up giving four or five shots away, but I played really well. Shot 2 under. There was like a mental barrier to get it back to even par, so that putt on 18 was big."

The future of one of the most talented free agents left on the market remains cloudy, as Eric Bledsoe and the Phoenix Suns remain far apart in contract talks, according to sources close to the situation.

[+] EnlargeEric Bledsoe

Christian Petersen/Getty ImagesEric Bledsoe is coming off a career season but is not close to a long-term deal with the Suns.

The Suns have offered Bledsoe a four-year, $48 million contract, but the point guard wants a maximum five-year, $80 million deal, league sources said.

A restricted free agent, Bledsoe averaged 17.7 points, 5.5 assists and 4.7 rebounds last season.

The thought that the Suns will match any offer Bledsoe receives from a competing club has deterred teams from aggressively pursuing the 24-year-old point guard. Phoenix has thus far refused to discuss potential sign-and-trade opportunities.
