Kevin Love Trade Finally Finalized

 

MINNEAPOLIS — The long-awaited Timberwolves deal with Cleveland was finalized earlier today, sending all-star Kevin Love to the Cavaliers.

The deal ends a summer full of trade rumors and speculation by the media and fans.

In exchange for Love, the Timberwolves received the last two 1st overall picks in the NBA draft in wing Andrew Wiggins and forward Anthony Bennett.

Wiggins, who showcased his electric style of play in the NBA summer league, is thought by many to have the potential to be a top-10 player in the league.

The Philadelphia 76ers were also part of the deal – sending veteran forward Thaddeus Young to the Wolves, and receiving Alexey Shved, Luc Mbah a Moute and a draft pick.

Young should help fill the void left by Love, as the 7th-year power forward scored 17.9 points per game last season.

The move ends an odd era in Timberwolves history, as Love tantalized the fans with his throwback style of play and eye-popping statistics – but never reached the playoffs in his six seasons with Minnesota.

With the trade, the Cavaliers instantly become the heavy favorite to win the Eastern Conference with its new “Big Three” of LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and now Kevin Love.

And for the Timberwolves, the rebuilding process has begun – again.
