Timberwolves announce Kevin Love trade with newspaper ad

Saturday August 23rd, 2014

How happy are the Timberwolves with the Kevin Love trade? Enough to take out a big, colorful newspaper ad touting the players they got in the deal, along with first-round pick Zach Lavine and newcomer Thaddeus Young.

The trade -- which sent Love to the Cavaliers in exchange for Anthony Bennett, Andrew Wiggins, and a 2015 first-round pick -- was announced earlier this month, but won't likely be official until today.
