In response to CelticGreenLP's comment:
Per Woj the 76ers and Wolves completed a deal sending Thaddeus Young to Minny for Luc Mbah A Moute, Shved, and a protected 1st from Miami.
Tanking done aggressively! I'm amazed the Sixers aren't getting more scrutiny from the league.
The Sixers of the future: MCW - Emmanuel Mudiay - Dario Saric - Noel - Embiid!
The Wolves made out pretty well considering how the Love situation was looking at the beginning of the offseason. When it's done they will have come away with Wiggins, Bennett, and the established player they wanted, Thad Young. Good haul for Kevin Love and a couple scraps.
Take a look at their lineup, it is atrocious. With any luck, they will go 4-78, then get the third pick. We will be better this year strictly for the reason we are going 5-0 against them.
Yeah, they will be bad this year, if they do get a top pick though they could have a very nice young team moving forward (until of course they all jump ship after their rookie deals run out).
But a core of Wiggins, Dieng, Bennett, and maybe a guy like Stanley Johnson, or Mudiay would be a great jumping off point. But I don't see how on earth they think they are going to "compete" this year. Or why they even bothered bringing in Thaddeus Young? I mean, what is he going to do for them? Not suddenly make them a playoff team, that is for sure.
oh wait, were you talking about the 76ers? I thought you were discussing the Wolves for some reason. Whatever, they are both gonna suck. You could kinda say the same things about either team, which is really sad for the Wolves because they actually want to try to win.
