Sources: Cavs, T-wolves agree on Love trade

UNDATED (AP) - It won't be long before LeBron James has a new All-Star teammate with him on the Cavaliers.

     Minnesota and Cleveland have agreed in principle to a trade that will send Kevin Love to the Cavaliers for Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett and a first-round draft pick, two people with knowledge of the deal have told The Associated Press. They spoke on condition of anonymity because no official agreement can be reached until Aug. 23, when Wiggins, this year's No. 1 overall draft pick, becomes eligible to be traded. 

     By that point, the deal could be expanded to include a third team, according to one of the people familiar with the talks. The Timberwolves have had discussions with the Philadelphia 76ers about acquiring forward Thaddeus Young to help fill Love's shoes. 

     Durant out for US

     UNDATED (AP) - Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant has withdrawn from the U.S. national team, dealing yet another blow to the weakening American team. The NBA's MVP has informed USA Basketball that he is mentally and physically drained from the season. 

     His withdrawal comes less than a week after Indiana's Paul George was lost to a broken right leg.

     Mavs' Felton suspended

     DALLAS (AP) - The NBA has suspended new Dallas guard Raymond Felton for the first four games of the upcoming season after his guilty plea in a New York gun case. Felton's suspension without pay was announced Thursday, two weeks after he took a plea deal that involved admitting a felony but avoiding jail time.

     Felton said in a statement released Thursday by the Mavericks that he demonstrated poor judgment and takes full responsibility for his actions.
