We really shouldn’t even be talking about this (shhh, keep your voice down), but the latest word from ESPN’s Brian Windhorst is that a deal between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Minnesota Timberwolves is all but done.
The teams are waiting until Aug. 23, the date No.1 overall pick Andrew Wiggins is eligible to be moved, to consummate the deal. Philadelphia would also be involved. From Windhorst:
Anthony Bennett, who’s on the Cavs right now, could get re-routed to Philadelphia in part of a deal for Thaddeus Young. There will be draft picks involved, but essentially what you need to know if you’re an NBA fan: Kevin Love will end up in Cleveland barring anything unforeseen, and Andrew Wiggins will end up in Minnesota.
What this essentially boils down to is that you’ve got about three more weeks of seeing pictures of Love on Boston.com.
