UNDATED (AP) — Two people with knowledge of the deal tell The Associated Press that Minnesota and Cleveland have agreed to a trade that will send All-Star forward Kevin Love to the Cavaliers for Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett and a future first-round draft pick.

The two people spoke Thursday on condition of anonymity because no official agreement can be reached until Aug. 23, when Wiggins, this year’s No. 1 draft pick, becomes eligible to be traded.

The deal will unite Love, LeBron James and Kyrie Irving in a new-look Big 3 in Cleveland. Love is a three-time All-Star but failed to make the playoffs in his first six seasons in Minnesota.

King James, meanwhile, got his football fix, showing up at the Browns’ training camp with his two sons.

James spent nearly an hour on the sideline as the Browns went through a morning workout. It was the NBA superstar’s first public appearance since re-signing with the Cavaliers last month.

James spoke with Browns coach Mike Pettine for several minutes and posed for pictures with several Browns players, including Pro Bowl cornerback Joe Haden. James also chatted with rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel.

James declined comment afterward, saying, “I’ll see you tomorrow” as he walked off the field holding hands with sons LeBron Jr. and Bryce. James will be welcomed back to Akron in an event Friday night.

Pettine joked he’s “father of the year” after he got his daughter in a photo with James.
