Philadelphia’s Alexey Shved has hoped to continue his NBA career as an unrestricted free agent at season’s end, but the Russian guard will instead strongly consider returning to Europe where he has received outlines for multi-million dollar offers, league sources told RealGM. RealGM

Nevertheless, Shved has lost enjoyment for his current situation due to low minutes. The 6-foot-6 product averaged nearly 23 minutes as a rookie, but just 10.5 per game a season ago. Despite being one of their most productive players this season, the 76ers have played Shved only 16.8 minutes a game. Before dealing Shved to the 76ers, the Minnesota Timberwolves scanned several other teams interested in him, including the Indiana Pacers, league sources said. If he ultimately returns to Europe as a free agent, Shved, 26, would recoup significant minutes and a lucrative offer comparable to, if not higher than, his NBA value. RealGM

With a fresh start in Philadelphia, Alexey Shved believes he will get more opportunities than he had in his two seasons with the Timberwolves. In a three-team trade in August, former Wolves players Shved and Luc Mbah a Moute went to the 76ers and Kevin Love went to Cleveland. In turn, the Wolves received Andrew Wiggins and Anthony Bennett from Cleveland and Thaddeus Young from the Sixers. "For me, it's much better because I can show my potential in the game," Shved said.

An NBA source said Shved has a chance for some minutes and that Mbah a Moute is also expected to stay, as opposed to being waived or bought out. Young, who makes $9.2 million, was likely to decline his $9.7 million player option next summer, making him an unrestricted free agent. This way, Hinkie gets something in return for Young.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have acquired forward Kevin Love in a three-team trade that sends guard Andrew Wiggins and forward Anthony Bennett to Minnesota and a projected 2015 first round pick (via Miami) to Philadelphia, General Manager David Griffin announced today from Cleveland Clinic Courts. As part of the three-team trade, Minnesota will also acquire forward Thaddeus Young from the 76ers, while Philadelphia receives forward Luc Mbah a Moute and guard Alexey Shved from the Timberwolves. “Kevin joining the Cavaliers represents a very special and unique opportunity for our team. At only 25, Kevin has already firmly established himself as one the NBA’s elite players and his talent, versatility and fit are major parts of our team’s vision for success,” said Griffin. “We want to also wish Andrew Wiggins and Anthony Bennett the best as they will continue the start of their careers in Minnesota. They are both outstanding young men that have great potential on the court and long, very successful careers ahead of them.” NBA.com

The Minnesota Timberwolves today announced the team has acquired Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett, Thaddeus Young and a trade exception in a three-team trade between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Philadelphia 76ers. In exchange, the Wolves will send Kevin Love to Cleveland while sending Luc Richard Mbah a Moute and Alexey Shved to Philadelphia. The 76ers also received the rights to Miami's 2015 first-round draft pick from Cleveland in the trade. Minnesota will introduce its new acquisitions at the Minnesota State Fair on Tuesday, August 26. Additional information regarding the introduction will be issued later today. "We are excited to add three young, talented and athletic players to our team in Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett and Thaddeus Young," said Timberwolves head coach Flip Saunders. "With the additions of Wiggins, Bennett and Zach LaVine this summer, we have brought in three exciting young athletes who all have the potential to have an impact in this league. All three of them complement each other very well and we believe they will be foundations of our team for years to come. In Young we are getting a proven NBA player who is entering the prime of his career. Our fans will enjoy watching these exciting players this coming season and beyond. NBA.com

"I appreciate all that Kevin, Luc and Alexey have done for our organization and wish them the best of luck with their new teams. I want to personally thank Kevin Love for his six seasons with the Wolves,” said Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor. “On the floor, Kevin has worked hard to make himself a great player in the NBA. He also made it a priority to give back to the community through his Coat Drive and numerous other charitable endeavors. He represented the state of Minnesota well during his time with us and we wish him nothing but the best in Cleveland. I also want to thank Luc and Alexey for their contributions to the team and wish them well in Philadelphia. I am truly excited to welcome Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett and Thaddeus Young to our team. Adding these young players, along with our No. 1 pick from this year, Zach LaVine, to our existing squad gives us a solid nucleus for the future.” NBA.com
