On Saturday, Aug. 23, a trade was approved to send Kevin Love from the Minnesota Timberwolves to the Cleveland Cavaliers. This comes about a month after the initial reports of the deal.
The Minnesota Timberwolves walk away as winners of this trade, too.
In exchange for Love, the T-Wolves received the past two No. 1 overall selections in the NBA Draft: Anthony Bennett and Andrew Wiggins.
Minnesota also took on Thaddeus Young from the Philadelphia 76ers for a future first rounder, Alexey Shved and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute.
Losing Love hurts, but Minnesota improved its long-term future in a dramatic way by trading its star.
