The trade the Cleveland Cavaliers and Minnesota Timberwolves made 17 months ago will go down as one of the most fascinating in NBA history. The deal, headlined by Kevin Love going to Cleveland and Andrew Wiggins to Minnesota, involved the eventual Rookie of the Year (Wiggins) and a three-time All-Star in his prime (Love).

A year and a half later, we can still reasonably pose the question: When Cleveland traded Wiggins, the No. 1 overall pick, for Love, did they win or lose the deal?
