It’s “official”, even though it can’t be actually “official official” until August 23rd, but the Minnesota Timberwolves and Cleveland Cavaliers have a “handshake” agreement on a trade involving Kevin Love.This deal has been in the making since draft night when Cleveland selected Andrew Wiggins with the 1st overall pick in June’s draft. Talks really started to heat up in July when Love said that he would not re-sign or finish out his contract with Minnesota.
The deal would also involve the Philadelphia 76ers. The Cavaliers would receive Love, Minnesota would get Wiggins and Thaddeus Young, and Philadelphia would get Anthony Bennett and a draft pick.
However, I wouldn’t be surprised if Minnesota tries to squeeze out a draft pick from Cleveland for themselves. This deal is not set-in-stone.
But it’s inevitable.
