HoopsHype Anthony Bennett rumors
Love was traded away in the offseason to Cleveland in a blockbuster move to acquire Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett and Thaddeus Young. Wiggins was the centerpiece of the deal, and the Timberwolves are hoping he might be the face of the franchise in future years. It also appears he wants to stay here as he recently purchased a home in Minneapolis. “One thing a lot of people don’t know is he moved his entire family up here, his younger sisters, his mom and dad. They bought a house here in the Twin Cities,” Timberwolves vice president of communications Brad Ruiter told WCCO-TV’s Ali Lucia on WCCO This Morning. “The fact that he moved his entire family up here tells me that he wants to put some roots down here.” CBS Minnesota
Sam Hinkie insists he never talked about acquiring Anthony Bennett from the Minnesota Timberwolves. “I can tell you unequivocally we didn’t have any conversations about (Bennett),” the Sixers’ general manager said during a 30-minute conference call Tuesday. The Intelligencer
"I've been hearing all the talks for a while now," said Bennett, the No. 1 overall pick in 2013. "So me being here in Minnesota, it's a great (state). It's a great fan base, great team coming up where everybody's young. We have some vets, too. I'm just here to learn from everybody." Minneapolis Star-Tribune
