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:
Colts signed running back Zurlon Tipton.
The Colts lost Ahmad Bradshaw for the season with a wrist injury on Sunday. Indianapolis decided to promote running back Zurlon Tipton from their practice squad. He will provide the back up duties to the old veteran Frank Gore in the Colts back field. Analysis: Drew Phelps
Luol Deng (hamstring) is officially listed as out for the Heat on Monday.
There was not much of a sweat as to whether or not Deng would play on Monday night but the Heat are hoping that he'll be able to return to the court on Thursday against the Thunder. This will be his third consecutive missed game. The hamstring is a tricky thing and it depends player to player how fast they can return. "My jump shot is fine. It's when I try to sprint, and I'm trying to just take off. That's when it's troubling me," Deng said. Gerald Green will start on Monday and should make for a nice daily fantasy value play.

Marc Anthony is now representing Aroldis Chapman.
In the spirit of Jay-Z, Anthony has taken his company, Magnus Media, and launche da sports division as a joint venture with veteran agents Barry Praver and Scott Shapiro, who will team with Magnus Media CEO Michel Vega to oversee the operations of the newly formed Magnus Sports. Praver and Shapiro have an extensive history working with Latino ballplayers and the expectation is that a number of them will follow the two to Anthony's group. This shouldn't have any effect on negotiations moving forward for the potentially soon-to-be-dealt Chapman. Analysis: Howard Bender
