According to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Kevin Love will be traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers in a three-team deal with the Philadelphia 76ers. The trade would send Cleveland's Andrew Wiggins and Anthony Bennett, Philadelphia's Thaddeus Young and a trade exception believed to be worth at least $4 million that they can use to acquire a player in the next year without being strapped by salary-cap rules to Minnesota while the Sixers would receive Miami’s 2015 first-round pick that the Cavaliers own as well as the expiring contracts of Wolves players Luc Mbah a Moute and Alexey Shved.

KA-BLAAAAM! Now THAT'S a deal. Even the Sixers make out well here turning Young into a first-rounder.The deal won't be announced until Saturday, but apparently all of this was agreed upon on Thursday.

J.R. Smith says one of his goals for the 2014-15 season is to be a leader.

Smith endured a down season a year ago, but appears poised to make a big comeback and take more of a leadership role in the team's backcourt. The Knicks shooting guard averaged 14.5 pints and 3.0 rebounds over 32.7 minutes per game during the 2013-14 season.

Thanasis Antetokounmpo has decided to play for the Knicks D-League team over playing in Europe next season.

This decision will allow Antetokounmpo the chance to join the Knicks sooner rather than later. He won't be paid or under contract to the Knicks, but he will be playing under coaches that will be taking direction from the New York front office. It may be awhile before Antetokounmpo makes the main roster, but at least he is closer to the Knicks playing in the D-League.

Blazers sign Darius Morris to their training camp roster.

Morris signed a non-guaranteed contract to try and land a spot on the Blazers roster this season. He bounced around to three different teams last year and averaged just four points and one rebound in just under 12 minutes per game over 27 games played. The Blazers are fairly well-stocked at the guard position, but Morris has some decent experience as a role-player.

Andre Drummond finished Team USA's 102-65 blowout win with 12 points on 6-of-10 shooting, five rebounds, and a steal in just over 16 minutes of play.

With DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis a little banged up, Drummond could see some extra minutes on the court come his way. The 21-year old is building up some solid experience here and should enjoy being a part of what appears to be a gold-medal winning team in the World Cup of Basketball.

Derrick Rose will not play in Wednesday's exhibition game vs. the Dominican Republic.

Reports were that Rose is dealing with knee soreness and had asked to sit out of the team's practices. Given Rose's documented history with knee injuries I would expect him to be very cautious and make sure he is ready for the upcoming NBA season.

Cavaliers coach David Blatt has added former Bucks coach Larry Drew to his staff.

This will be quite an upgrade for Drew over the roster he had with the 2013-14 Milwaukee Bucks. It's good to see Drew land on his feet in a good position after the way he was just tossed aside in Milwaukee with the hiring on Jason Kidd as their new head coach. Drew is the type that could end up getting another shot as a head man somewhere in the future.

DeMarcus Cousins is questionable to play for Team USA on Wednesday vs. the Dominican Republic.

This weekend it was reported that he was expected to play in Wednesday's friendly vs. the Dominican Republic in New York. This downgrade is a shot to the possibility of Cousins making the final roster for the US team. It is clear that Cousins wants to be apart of this team and with the lack of size already on the roster, I'm shocked he hasn't already been named to the team.
