The deal between the Minnesota Timberwolves and Cleveland Cavaliers for Kevin Love is reportedly done.
According to ESPN, a three-team agreement (in principle) has been reached to send Philadelphia’s Thaddeus Young along with #1 overall draft pick Andrew Wiggins to the Timberwolves, while Kevin Love heads to the Cavs.
The Wolves had already verbally agreed to acquire Wiggins, alongside 2013 #1 overall pick Anthony Bennett, as well as a future first-round pick from the Cavs for Love.
Barring any late obstacles, the deal will be completed Saturday (Aug. 23), the first day Wiggins is eligible to be dealt after signing his contract July 24.
76ers’ forward Young has been tapped to replace Love in Minnesota, while Philly will get a future first-round pick and the expiring contracts of Luc Richard Mbah A Moute and Alexey Shved.
