Cavs make it official; they've signed Kevin Love

(Minneapolis)--The Cleveland Cavaliers issued a press release Saturday afternoon confirming that 25-year-old Kevin Love of the Minnesota Timberwolves will join the team.

The Minnesota Timberwolves, Cleveland Cavaliers and Philadelphia 76ers have completed the long-discussed blockbuster trade of Love for overall first round draft pick Andrew Wiggins.

When they do, it will make Andrew Wiggins a bit of an anomaly.  He will join Chris Webber as the only No. 1 overall draft picks to be traded without playing a game for the team that drafted them since the NBA-ABA merger in 1976.

The Cavaliers are sending Wiggins and Anthony Bennett to Minnesota for Love.  They will also send Miami's 2015 first-round draft pick to the 76ers in the three-team deal.

The Sixers will also get guard Alexey Shved and Forward Luc Mbah A Moute from the Timberwolves, and send Thaddeus Young to Minnesota in the trade, which will be announced on Saturday.
