In an interview with ESPN New York radio, reporter Brian Windhorst, pretty well-connected to the Cleveland Cavaliers, reports that there is a "handshake agreement" between the Cavaliers and Minnesota Timberwolves for a Kevin Love trade.
Poor Andrew Wiggins has been yo-yoed about since the day he was drafted, and now signed, the Cavs have to wait 30 days to trade him. It's assumed he's as good as gone, and the Cavs will have the most formidable 1-2 punch in the NBA. ANALYST:
Brett Oberholtzer will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Fresno Wednesday.
Oberholtzer has been recovering from a blister on his finger and is expected to throw 65-70- pitches in this outing to prove he is ready to return. The real question, though, is what his role will be upon his return. With rookie Lance McCullers pitching well, Oberholtzer might end up in long-relief rather than in the rotation. It might not be a permanent situation, but that's definitely the way it could start. Analysis: Howard Bender
