The Cleveland Cavaliers have finally acquired Kevin Love from the Minnesota Timberwolves, thus ending a month long back and forth about what would be included in a trade and what wouldn’t be.
In the end, Love was the centerpiece of the trade but the Wolves got back some serious return for their part in the deal. While Cavs fans can flaunt Love, they have to acknowledge that the Wolves equally won this trade as picking up Andrew Wiggins and Anthony Bennett — as well as Thaddeus Young from the Philadelphia 76ers — was quite the haul for a player they were going to lose anyways.
The Sunday editions of the Star Tribune and Pioneer Press have been printed and sent out for distribution, and in each of them is an ad that welcomes Andrew Wiggins, Thaddeus Young and Anthony Bennett to the team.

This is a small victory for the print business as the internet didn’t get wind of the Love trade getting finalized until later in the afternoon. Actually, the internet and Twitterverse didn’t get wind of the trade getting finalized until word about the newspaper ad spread — which is sort of cool when you think about it.
