It looks like Kevin Love will no longer be putting on a jersey for the Minnesota Timberwolves. After weeks of speculation, a deal is finally in place to send Love to the Cleveland Cavaliers in exchange for this year’s number one overall pick Andrew Wiggins and last year’s number one overall pick Anthony Bennett.
Here are the links to the Cavaliers-Timberwolves trade and some Washington Wizards updates.
Since Wiggins has already signed his rookie contract, he cannot be traded until one month after the date that he put ink to paper. That means that Wiggins will be eligible for a trade on August 23, so we could see an official deal take place at that time.
Although Roy Rogers was a power forward during his playing days, he does have coaching experience and he’ll probably be a good fit.
If I’m not mistaken, this was the first time Bradley Beal played at a Pro-AM league during the summer. His teammate, John Wall, gained some popularity for dominating the Pro-AM circuit during the 2011 lockout season.
John Wall had to compete with Derrick Rose, who got basically all of the coverage during the start of camp, Stephen Curry, Damian Lillard, and of course, Kyrie Irving. Although Wall is arguably a better NBA player than some of the players I listed, his skill-set doesn’t necessarily translate as well to the international game.
So, that does it for today’s Wizardly Links.
The Kevin Love trade will undoubtedly dominate the NBA headlines tonight and we’ll make sure to cover what this means for the Washington Wizards. Stay tuned.
