Kevin Love deal morphs into three-team trade
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Cavaliers' acquisition of Kevin Love is set to go down Saturday, and Yahoo.com reports it will end up being a three-team deal.

The Timberwolves will receive Andrew Wiggins , Anthony Bennett and a lottery-protected first-round pick from the Cavaliers in exchange for Love, and are set to move one of those pieces to Philadelphia to complete the deal.

The Wolves will move the first-round pick -- a top-10 protected pick from Miami -- to the 76ers along with Alexey Shved and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute in exchange for Thaddeus Young, as first reported by the Minnesota Star-Tribune.

Trade doesn't hurt Kevin Love's potential too much
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Though the move to Cleveland and a stacked Cavaliers roster should make life considerably easier for Kevin Love, should Fantasy owners be moving him down their draft boards a bit after Thursday's news?

Love carried a huge load for the Timberwolves last season, logging 36 minutes per game and finishing the season second in Fantasy scoring overall. He averaged a career-high 26.1 points and 4.4 assists per game, while adding 12.5 rebounds, but will now have to adjust to life as a second or even third option offensively.

With LeBron James and Kyrie Irving already on hand, Love is almost certainly going to take on a smaller scoring role. He attempted 18.5 field goals per game a year ago, which actually led this trio a year ago. However, he is also much more reliant on his teammates setting him up than the other two, so he should have the ball in his hands a little less by default.

Even if Love takes three fewer shots per game next season, there is little reason to drop him too much for Fantasy purposes. With his three-point range and offensive rebounding skills, Love still promises to be one of the most efficient scorers in the league. Even after adjusting his projection to reflect his new reality, Love is still projected for 23.2 points, 11.8 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game next season.

Love likely won't be one of the three most productive Fantasy options in the league again next season, but there is no question he is still a slam dunk first-round pick. He shouldn't go much later than 8th overall on Draft Day.

Report: Cavs, Wolves finalize Kevin Love deal
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The long-awaited deal to send Kevin Love to the Cavaliers has been agreed to, according to a Yahoo.com report Thursday.

Though the deal cannot be officially finalized until Aug. 23, the Timberwolves are expected to acquire the last two No. 1 overall picks in the deal, in the form of forwards Anthony Bennett and Andrew Wiggins. They will also reportedly receive a 2015 first-round pick in the deal.

The report also indicates the Cavaliers have received a commitment from Love that he will opt out of his current contract next offseason and re-sign a five-year max contract worth $120 million.

by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com

Team USA will be without two of its star power forwards for the August FIBA World Cup, as Blake Griffin and Kevin Love both withdrew from participation.

According to the AP, Love wants to be cautious and not risk injury while seeking a trade from the Timberwolves.

Griffin said in a statement that he appreciated the invite but would decline the opportunity in order to focus his energy on improving the Clippers

Report: Bulls offer three players for Kevin Love
by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com

A rumor surfaced early Wednesday that indicated the Chicago Bulls would be willing to give up three players to obtain forward Kevin Love. According to SheridanHoops.com, Chicago has offered the Timberwolves bench stud Taj Gibson, first-round pick Doug McDermott and recently signed Spanish star Nikola Mirotic for Love. 

It's been speculated that rumors including Chicago are merely smokescreens to coax the Cavaliers into adding more to their reported offer. The report suggests that should Cleveland sweeten the deal by including a second future first rounder in addition to Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett and the initial future first round pick, that Cleveland would have a better chance of stealing Love away from the Bulls. 

The Timberwolves would be wise to do everything in their power to speed up this process, considering Love is set to become a free agent next season and has already said that he will test the market.
