Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett and Thaddeus Young will be headed to Minnesota; Kevin Love is destined for Cleveland; and Alexey Shved, Luc Mbah a Moute and a first round pick from Cleveland (via Miami) is headed to Philadelphia.
The Wolves will also receive $6.3 million trade exception as part of the deal as well.
In total, the Cleveland Cavs and Minnesota Wolves did well in this trade. The Cavaliers get what they wanted in Love, and the Wolves get the last two No. 1 overall NBA Draft picks (Wiggins, Bennett) and a potential position replacement (for Love) in Young and an additional first round pick for next season.
Minnesota came out looking a whole lot better than what could’ve happened. They might even have come away with a better team.
