The Daily News has learned that the Sixers will, indeed, be involved in the Cavs-Timberwolves deal.
While the news came out Thursday that Minnesota and Cleveland had agreed in principle to a trade that will send All-Star Kevin Love to the Cavaliers for Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett and a first-round draft pick, the Daily News has learned that the Sixers will, indeed, be involved in the deal.
