Two people with knowledge of the deal tell The Associated Press that Minnesota
and Cleveland have agreed to a trade that will send All-Star forward Kevin Love
to the Cavaliers for Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett and a future first-round
The two people spoke Thursday on condition of anonymity because no official
agreement can be reached until Aug. 23, when Wiggins, this year’s No. 1 draft
pick, becomes eligible to be traded.
The deal will unite Love, LeBron James and Kyrie Irving in a new-look Big 3 in
Cleveland. Love is a three-time All-Star but failed to make the playoffs in his
first six seasons in Minnesota.
