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.
