Source: Sixers to trade Thad Young

The 76'ers are reportedly involved in a blockbuster trade.

A person with knowledge of the situation tells The Associated Press that the Minnesota Timberwolves will receive Sixers power forward Thaddeus Young as part of the deal that will send Kevin Love to the Cleveland Cavaliers. The person requested anonymity because an official announcement has not been made.

The Wolves agreed weeks ago to send Love to team up with LeBron James in Cleveland. The Wolves will also get Andrew Wiggins and Anthony Bennett in the deal, which cannot be completed until Saturday, 30 days after Wiggins signed his rookie contract.

The Sixers will get Alexey Shved and Luc Mbah a Moute from Minnesota and a 2015 first-round draft choice from Cleveland.
