Well then, this report just about made my day. In the report, it is stated that Brian Windhorst of ESPN, went on ESPN radio yesterday and said that the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Minnesota Timberwolves have a handshake agreement regarding the much rumored trade involving Kevin Love and Andrew Wiggins.
The finer details of the trade have yet to move past speculation. With the only thing set in stone appearing to be Andrew Wiggins being the deal’s center piece.
That said, those speculated finer trade details include Philly possibly sending Thaddeus Young to the Timberwolves and the 76ers acquiring last year’s first overall pick Anthony Bennett as well as additional draft picks.
The trade would honestly be a win-win for everybody. The 76ers have the opportunity to take a flyer on a kid with upside and continue on with their rebuilding plan. The Cavs get the best Power Forward in the game. Meanwhile, the Wolves get Wiggins, a potential superstar, and Thad Young, a 26-year-old 7-year NBA veteran small ball four who is a solid starter with the ability to stretch the floor.
Yes, T-Wolves fans, it would be nice to get a pick thrown in as well. But honestly, and Cavs fans, take note -- sometimes it’s best to take what you’re given and not be greedy.
