Thaddeus Young Headed To Minnesota Timberwolves In Three-Team Kevin Love Trade

The Kevin Love trade that was agreed upon weeks ago will be made official on Saturday as the 30-day waiting period will come to an end. The deal was originally going to only involve the Cleveland Cavaliers and Minnesota Timberwolves, but the Philadelphia 76ers will join in by inserting Thaddeus Young to the trade, according to reports made by Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune.
The official deal will send Kevin Love to the Cavaliers to form a new big three withLeBron James and Kyrie Irving.
The Minnesota Timberwolves will receive Andrew WigginsAnthony Bennett, Thaddeus Young, a first-round draft pick from the Cavaliers, and a trade exception worth nearly $4 million in which the Wolves will have an entire year to use.
The Philadelphia 76ers will acquire Luc Mbah a MouteAlexey Shved, and Miami Heat’s first-round draft pick that Cleveland owns.
Minnesota has always wanted Young as a replacement for Love. Young will supply the youthful Wolves with veteran leadership and versatility as a power forward. He averaged 17.9 points and 6.0 rebounds per game last season. Andrew Wiggins, as everyone knows, has star credentials and will be the future of the Timberwolves.
Philadelphia continues its rebuilding project as they unload more talent to ensure a high lottery pick in the near future. However, Mbah a Moute and rookie big manJoel Embiid share a great relationship as they are both from Cameroon, and Mbah a Moute has served as a mentor for the twenty-year old.
Cleveland really likes Andrew Wiggins, but they figure that their winning chances are much higher with Kevin Love as of now. Love plans to opt out of his contract regardless but will surely re-sign a long-term deal with the Cavaliers.
After completing a trade call with the league offices, the deal will be done. The Timberwolves are reportedly prepared to introduce Wiggins, Bennett, and Young on Tuesday.

Nick Cannon Confirms Reports of Split From Mariah Carey

Nick Cannon has confirmed he and wife Mariah Carey are separated.
“There is trouble in paradise,” Cannon told The Insider With Yahoo on Thursday. “We have been living in separate houses for a few months.”
The actor, producer and television personality didn't reveal the cause of the separation, but he did squash the notion that infidelity was a factor.
Cannon, who hosts the hit NBC summer series “America's Got Talent,” made the announcement a day after his network tied an all-time series low in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic. But he insists the show's ratings are not what's on his mind right now.
“My main focus is my kids,” he added, referring to the separated couple's three-year-old twins, Monroe and Moroccan.
As far as Carey's career goes, the five-time Grammy winner's latest album in May 2014 — “Me. I am Mariah … The Elusive Chanteuse” — sold fewer than 60,000 copies in its debut week. Despite Carey's massive popularity, the CD only debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 200.
Following the album's disastrous release, Carey parted ways with her manager and longtime producer Jermaine Dupri.
On Aug. 6, Dupri issued a statement to Billboard about the split.
“I'm a very hands-on person when it comes to my work,” Dupri said. “I put my all into every project. But when I'm not allowed to do what I do, then I know it's time for me to move on. Mariah and I enjoy working together and will continue to make great music together in the future.”
Dupri also served as executive producer of “The Elusive Chanteuse,” and he previously produced two of Carey's biggest hits — “We Belong Together” and “Always Be My Baby.”
As for Cannon's career, he'll next appear in the upcoming the VH1 movie “Drumline: A New Beat.”
The “Drumline” sequel stars Alexandra Shipp as Dani Bolton, and will debut in fall 2014. While Cannon's character Devon Miles only makes a cameo, the entertainer served as one of the film's executive producers.
Cannon also serves as master of ceremonies on MTV2's “Nick Cannon Presents: Wild ‘N Out,” and has a recurring role on BET's faux reality series “Real Husbands of Hollywood.”
Carey, 44, is one of the best-selling music artists of all time, having moved more than 200 million records worldwide. She also briefly worked as a judge on Fox's “American Idol.”
The pop icon and Cannon tied the knot in 2008. She was previously married to former Sony Music Entertainment executive, Tommy Mottola.
Carey's reps did not immediately respond to the TheWrap‘s request for comment.
Anita Bennett and Tony Maglio contributed to this report.

Cash Money Could Lose Some Cash Money

In this digital age, having a heavy  online presence is a key component to success in the music industry but according to a new lawsuit, Lil Wayne’s Young Money camp may be in danger of losing a part of their web presence. The label struck a deal to buy the youngmoney.com domain from a company that used it as a portal for young entrepreneurs. As part of the 2011 deal, YMCMB had to make on time payments of the $600,000 purchase or face forfeiting the domain. The suit claims the label hasn’t paid the $250,000 balance and the seller wants the domain back.
As of now Wayne or YMCMB haven’t commented on the suit. Weezy might be a bit on the busy side being that he’s currently getting ready to hit the road with his protege Drake for the Drake Vs Lil Wayne tour that kicks off Aug. 8. And just last week Weezy also announced the signing of his daughter Regiane Carter to Young Money.

Football Season is Around the Corner

The 2014-15 NFL season is just 74 days away, and we must say, we are ready fro Texans Football. Despite the breakdown season we had this past run, I feel the Texans are ready to dominate this year. The Power staff  is most definitely ready for the "Watt & Clowney" Double team.

Judging from the Texans website, Bill O'Brien has been working hard at getting the team prepared for the new season. We just hope Andre Johnson is still considering the Texans as his team. So make sure you get all your Texans gear from the store at, www.HoustonTexans.com

The BOSS Needs PERMISSION to Perform: Detroit NO FLY ZONE

Rick Ross was scheduled to headline HOT 107.5′s Summer Jamz 17 in Detroit this weekend, but reports coming out of the city is that the Maybach Music Group boss was not allowed to hit the stage.
When it was time for Ross to perform an announcement was made that the Mastermind rapper did not make it into the venue. He was reportedly stopped by large group of people outside.
“We had Rick Ross right outside here tonight. At about 11 o’clock, when he was pulling up to come into Chene Park, he was met by 100 individuals outside,” 107.5′s program director Jay Hicks told the crowd. “We have tried to pull every resource together and asked him to come back. He is in fear of his life.”
HotHipHopDetroit.com reports rapper Trick Trick may have placed Ross in the “No Fly Zone” which is also the name of the Goon Sqwad member’s new single. That would mean Rozay cannot enter Detroit without the approval of Trick aka “The Mayor of Detroit.”
“[Ross] may never come back to Detroit,” Hicks added.
Rick Ross addressed not performing at Summer Jamz on Twitter.
