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.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Update: Corey Dickerson was removed from Saturday's game with a left quad injury.
While the news regarding Dickerson's plantar fasciitis was positive, he was removed after he fouled a ball off his back leg and is now day-to-day with what the team is calling a quad injury. When his leg appeared to be swollen, manager Walt Weiss opted to play it safe and remove Dickerson who had gone 0-for-3 in Saturday's game against the Giants. Consider him day-to-day for right now and figure he'll be a game-time decision for Sunday. Analysis: Howard Bender
