The movements continue in the NBA, this time, involving All-Star forward Kevin Love.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have reportedly reached an agreement in principle to send top overall draft pick Andrew Wiggins and former top pick Anthony Bennett to the Minnesota Timberwolves in exchange for Love.

Cleveland will also send a protected 2015 first-round pick to Minnesota.

Love would team up with recently-signed four-time league most valuable player LeBron James and could solidify the Cavaliers as a favorite to represent the eastern conference in the NBA Finals.

The deal cannot be finalized until August 23, because Wiggins cannot be traded until one month following the signing of his rookie contract.

Meantime, Bennett, the first overall pick in the 2013 NBA draft had a rough start to his rookie campaign with Cleveland. -- ANC, Dateline Philippines, Aug. 8, 2014
