The Minnesota Timberwolves have reached an agreement in principle to send All-Star forward Kevin Love to the Cleveland Cavaliers for Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett and a protected 2015 first-round draft pick, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
Cleveland is making the deal with Minnesota with a firm agreement Love will opt out of his contract in 2015 and re-sign with the Cavaliers on a five-year, $120 million-plus contract extension, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
The deal cannot be finalized until August 23rd because Wiggins cannot be traded until one month after the signing of his rookie contract.
With the addition of Love, the Cavaliers should be the favorites in the Eastern Conference to win that elusive championship Cleveland has been waiting for since 1964.
