Kevin Love was officially traded to the Cavaliers.
For those who missed the announcement from Thursday, it all went down like this: 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 Miamis 2015 first-round pick that the Cavaliers own as well as the expiring contracts of Wolves players Luc Mbah a Moute and Alexey Shved.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Kobe Bryant is still unsure if 2015-16 will be his final season in the NBA.
“We haven’t set anything in stone and I’ve talked about it before. But could this be the last [season]? Absolutely," Bryant told Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports. "It’s tough to decide. It’s really tough to make those types of decisions." In a nutshell, Kobe said that he won't be able to make a decision until after the season. He wants to see how much he enjoys playing still and the only time to make that determination is after the season comes to a close. It looks like this will annoyingly drag out all season and all of next summer. Analysis: Howard Bender
Ameer Abdullah is apparently impressing during the early stages of training camp.
Abdullah has been turning heads since being selected in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft. The Lions' see him as the second coming of Reggie Bush in Joe Lombardi's offensive system. If that is true, he'll get the ball on average 10.5 times per game but most expect that number to be the bare minimum for Abdullah's rookie-year. The ADP on Ameer has him getting selected in the sixth round of most drafts. Analysis: Drew Phelps
