Report: 'Handshake deal' done to send Kevin Love to Cleveland

Brian Windhorst on ESPN Radio in New York (around the 9:30 mark of the audio clip):

The deal is done, but not done. The teams have agreed, but they can't say they have agreed and they can't agree because we're in this weird moratorium period because you can't trade Andrew Wiggins until the 23rd of this month...But essentially before the papers have been signed, there is this handshake agreement that Kevin Love to the Cavs, Andrew Wiggins to the Timberwolves, and I believe Thaddeus Young will end up in Minnesota, either as part of a separate deal or as part of a three-way deal. Possibly Anthony Bennett, who's on the Cavs right now, could get rerouted to Philadelphia in part of a deal for Thaddeus Young, there'd be draft picks involved.

This really just confirms what we've all suspected for some time now.  Windhorst does say that it's possible a better offer could come along in the next 19 days (before August 23), but he clearly doesn't expect that to happen.
