The Sixers are expected to be the third team involved in a trade that would send Kevin Love to the Cleveland Cavaliers and Andrew Wiggins to the Minnesota Timberwolves, according to a report from Brian Windhorst of ESPN. Windhorst was less clear about what the Sixers would be receiving back, saying the Sixers would "possibly" send out forward Thaddeus Young to the Timberwolves, with Cavaliers second-year player Anthony Bennett coming back to the Sixers as well as unspecified draft picks. This is not the first time reports have surfaced that the Sixers would be involved in a Love-to-Cleveland trade. "The deal is done," said Windhorst of Love to the Cavaliers. "The teams have agreed, but they can't say they have agreed." The teams being forced to wait to execute the deal leaves the completion of it up in the air, as another team could come in and offer a sweeter deal to the Timberwolves.
Love to Cavs, Wiggins and Young to the Wolves and Bennett to 76ers?
