Saunders impressed so far with promising Andrew Wiggins
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Timberwolves coach Flip Saunders has been impressed with the preseason performance of rookie forward Andrew Wiggins. He revealed his feelings when talking about Wiggins' performance Tuesday night against Indiana.

"He's more than just an athlete," Saunders told the team website. "He's pretty skilled. He can hit a shot when he wants and make a couple threes, he went to the basket, got to the free throw line a lot, so the more he plays, the more he plays with veteran guys."

Wiggins racked up 18 points, four rebounds, three assists and three blocks in the defeat to the Pacers. He also went 8-for-10 from the foul line.

Timberwolves not ready to name Andrew Wiggins the starter
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Timberwolves head coach Flip Saunders has not indicated if guard Andrew Wiggins, the No. 1 overall pick in this year's draft, will be the starter come Oct. 29 when the team opens the regular season at Memphis. According to the team's play-by-play radio announcer, Saunders is more concerned about who finishes the games, rather than who is starting.

Wiggins is competing with Corey Brewer for the starting job. Brewer already admitted he's comfortable with coming off the bench

"I don't mind coming off the bench. Let's be honest, we got the No. 1 pick. I just want to win," Brewer said.

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.

Landing in Minnesota should improve Andrew Wiggins' value
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The prize of the trade that ultimately sent Kevin Love to Cleveland will likely be the Timberwolves' acquisition of No. 1 overall pick Andrew Wiggins , assuming there are no unexpected changes in the deal the two sides agreed to.

If Wiggins does ultimately land in Minnesota, as expected, this should be a boon to his Fantasy value. Though Wiggins will have substantially less help as he makes the transition to the NBA than he would have in Cleveland, he is also likely to be much more of a featured option than he otherwise might have been.

Wiggins was likely going to be the third or possibly even fourth offensive option for the Cavs, and likely would have been so for some time, given the presence of LeBron James and Kyrie Irving on long-term deals. Now, the Timberwolves get to build around Wiggins as their long-term centerpiece, and he should be given plenty of rope as the team tries to navigate their upcoming rebuild.

Wiggins is raw, but still put up 17.1 points and 5.9 rebounds in 32.8 minutes per game as a freshman at the University of Kansas. There are some questions about how well his game will translate to the NBA, but he will at least have some help, in the form of point guard Ricky Rubio, who knows exactly how to set up teammates for shots they like.

Wiggins is mostly upside right now, but should be considered a second-round pick in all keeper-league Fantasy formats. In yearly re-draft leagues, he is more of a mid-round option at this point, albeit one with tremendous upside.

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.
