Kevin Love Trade To Cavs Eligible To Happen Saturday

If the reports are true, Kevin Love should be a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers Saturday, as Sheridan Hoops founder Chris Sheridan reminded us on Twitter Tuesday afternoon.

The deal reportedly included No. 1 overall pick Andrew Wiggins. The trade couldn’t be completed because Wiggins can’t be dealt until Aug. 23, which is this Saturday.

Let this post serve as a friendly remainder that the deal can finally be legal in the eyes of the NBA. It seems so long ago that reporters connected the dots regarding who was going where.

The Cavs will also deal Anthony Bennett, who is expected to go to Philadelphia with the Wolves getting Thaddeus Young. Minnesota will also get a future Cavs’ first-round pick for Love.

When the deal becomes official, the Cavs will have capped off what may be the luckiest NBA offseason in the history of basketball.
