Thaddeus Young trade: Could it be any more done without actually being done?

As mentioned last night, the Kevin Love (and Thaddeus Young) trades is/are all set, in principle, and will be finalized over the weekend.

But admit it: we were all waiting for Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski to confirm what we already knew. No offense to Jerry Zgoda, Darren Wolfson, Jon Krawczynski and other media members that had already reported as much. But nothing is true in today’s NBA without being confirmed by a WojBomb.

Woj wrote up a piece detailing the Thaddeus Young angle to the three-team deal, but it’s exactly as has been talked here at DWW for some time.

In the interest of the Wolves being the Wolves, we won’t breakdown the new-look, painfully young squad as of yet. The trade is all but official, but “official” will be the key word. Then the analysis can flow forth.

Even still, the Wolves are already lining up a way to get all three newcomers, along with first-round draft pick Zach LaVine, to Minnesota in the coming week to introduce them as the new core of the organization.

There are some rumors floating out there that the “introduction” of sorts will take place at the Minnesota State Fair. An interesting first impression of Minnesota for the new guys, but hey…let’s immerse ‘em in Midwest culture, right?

It’s doubtful anything else will break throughout the course of Friday and early Saturday, but we’ll keep you posted in the event that anything does. And when the official word is released at some time on Saturday or Sunday, we’ve got you covered.
