Three days after trading their best player, forward Kevin Love, to the Cleveland Cavaliers as part of a three-team deal, the Minnesota Timberwolves introduced their newest players Tuesday in front of a friendly crowd at the Minnesota State Fair.
The Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday traded their third-string center Hasheem Thabeet to Philadelphia for a $1.25 million trade exception. The Thunder also will receive a heavily protected 2015 second-round draft pick.
The 30-day waiting period on the Kevin Love trade to the Cleveland Cavaliers ends Saturday and the Minnesota Timberwolves expect to land Philadelphia 76ers power forward Thaddeus Young in addition to No. 1 overall draft pick Andrew Wiggins, according to multiple reports.
