Now that the moratorium on trading Andrew Wiggins (due to the dated 30-day waiting period after signing rookie draft picks) has ended, Wiggins has been officially flipped along with Anthony Bennett and our first round pick from Miami. As a part of the trade, Philadelphia also has gotten involved in the trade, though not for Bennett as originally expected. Minnesota ends up with Wiggins, Bennett, and Young (a pretty solid haul) for Love, while Philly gets Luc Mbah a Moute and Alexy Shved, along with the Miami #1.
Now that everyone involved can finally speak openly about the trade, we get some player reactions to the trade as well:
Dion Waiters / Shawn Marion / Joe Harris
LeBron James / Mike Miller / James Jones
Kevin Love / Tristan Thompson / Dwight Powell
Anderson Varejao / Brendan Haywood / Alex Kirk
Oh, and on a similar note to the Love news, the Cavs finally signed their other second round pick, Dwight Powell, who was acquired and with Brendan Haywood by trading Scotty Hopson to the Bobcats during the draft.
We'll be bringing you some new analysis content in the coming days, as well as some more offseason fun, but we're probably in for a bit of a lull in the Cavs news for a while. Stay pumped, because there's a long season of excitement to come!
