The Minnesota Timberwolves will acquire Philadelphia 76ers forward Thaddeus Young for a 2015 first-round draft pick and two role players, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
The Timberwolves will send Philadelphia the Miami Heat's 2015 first-round pick Minnesota will acquire as part of the Kevin Love deal with Cleveland, sources said. The T-Wolves will send forward Luc Mbah a Moute and guard Alexey Shved to the Sixers.
The draft pick is lottery protected to No. 10 in the 2015 and 2016 drafts, and unprotected in 2017.
Mbah a Moute has a long-standing relationship with Sixers rookie Joel Embiid, and Philadelphia considers him an important part of the mentoring process for the third pick in the 2014 NBA draft.
The deal will be finalized on Saturday, concurrently with the closure of the deal that will send Cleveland's Andrew Wiggins, the No. 1 overall pick in the '14 draft, and Anthony Bennett to Minnesota for All-Star forward Kevin Love.
The Minnesota Star-Tribune first reported the final structure of the Young deal.
