Sixers will be sending forward Thaddeus Young to Minnesota for a package that will include Anthony Bennett. The deal will not be official until August 23rd.
Although the Timberwolves are losing out on Kevin Love, they will certainly make out in the deal, adding Andrew Wiggins and Young to their roster. As for Bennett, he will move into a position to start for the Sixers as he will get a chance to prove his first overall pick status. In the end, this is a win-win for all three teams involved.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
