After a summer long of rumors, speculation and fantasy; Kevin Love has officially been dealt from the Minnesota Timberwolves to the Cleveland Cavaliers to join LeBron James and Kyrie Irving.

The Wolves, Cavs and Philadelphia 76ers completed a three-team trade Saturday afternoon, per Yahoo! Sports.

Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett and Thaddeus Young will be headed to Minnesota; Kevin Love is destined for Cleveland; and Alexey ShvedLuc 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.
