Love to Cavs for Wiggins, more

It's official: Kevin Love is a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers, joining LeBron James and Kyrie Irving on the new-look team. Meanwhile Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett and Thaddeus Young will try to bring the Timberwolves back to the playoffs. There's no telling what could come of this -- Love is an excellent player, but Wiggins could end up being a superstar, and there's no guarantee whether James' second version of a big three will work out as well as the first.

Andrew Wiggins for Kevin Love?

Perhaps we haven't seen the last of elite player movement in the 2014 NBA offseason. After long insisting they wouldn't trade Andrew Wiggins, the Cleveland Cavaliers reportedly are willing to include the No. 1 overall pick in a deal that would bring Kevin Love from the Minnesota Timberwolves and pair him alongside LeBron James. This would firmly entrench the Cavs in win-now mode. Would it be the right move for Cleveland? For Minnesota?

The Minnesota Timberwolves reportedly are eyeing Andrew Wiggins in a trade for Kevin Love. The Cleveland Cavaliers' coach, David Blatt, says the 2014 No. 1 draft pick isn't going anywhere, not even for an All-Star to team up with LeBron James.

Whatever his future, Wiggins is doing things now. As in, throwing down a 360-degree, behind-the-back dunk in summer league warm-ups like it's nothing.
