Kyrie Irving, LeBron James and Kevin Love is a great of a core to build around you could ever imagine. But will Tristan Thompson, Dion Waiters, Anderson Varejao and Mike Miller be enough of a supporting cast?Love is expected to sign a 5 year $120mil extension.Bennett desperately needed a new home after a tumultuous rookie season in Cleveland as the #1 overall pick in 2013. Wiggins now becomes the face of the T'Wolves franchise that features Ricky Rubio, Kevin Martin and Nikola Pekovic. Minny also has Corey Brewer, Shabazz Muhammad, Gorgui Dieng, rookie Zack LaVine on the roster and added veteran Mo Williams recently.  There are a lot of players looking for playing time, and only 48 minutes per position.  It will be interesting to see who wins position battles.The deal can not be finalized until August 23rd.
