"In the strongest statement to date, Minnesota Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor to the St. Paul Pioneer Press the team will likely trade All-Star power forward Kevin Love on Aug. 23 or Aug. 24.
Love’s trade to the Cavaliers has been speculated for almost a month. By rule, the teams can’t make the deal until Aug. 23 because that’s 30 days after Cavaliers swingman Andrew Wiggins signed his rookie contract.
The Cavaliers are expected to send Wiggins, forward Anthony Bennett and a first-round pick to the Timberwolves for Love. There would be several other minor parts to the deal." - CLICK HERE to read full story.

"Cleveland Cavaliers fans who wanted to get an Andrew Wiggins jersey could be out of luck.
The Cavaliers have been reported as the only team with a chance to land star Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love. For any deal to get done between the two clubs, it appears that Cleveland must include Wiggins.
And maybe the NBA feels Wiggins will never touch the court as a member of the Cavaliers, because it has discontinued his jersey on the league's website." - CLICK HERE to read full story.
