    • Former Bulls guard Ronnie Brewer has been fined and sentenced to probation after pleading no contest to DUI charges in Beverly Hills.
      Advice: Brewer was waived by Chicago in July and it's unclear whether he's drawn interest as an unrestricted free agent. If he does eventually sign with an NBA team he'll likely face a short suspension from the league stemming from his DUI.

    • Wolves owner Glen Taylor questioned Kevin Love's durability during a recent interview, and said Love "got away with some stuff not playing defense [with Minnesota]."
      Advice: "The only thing I still have a question mark about is his health," Taylor said. "If [the Cavaliers] sign him to a five-year contract like they're thinking about, that's a big contract on a guy who's had some times when he has missed games." Taylor also implied that Love is the third-best player on the Cavs behind LeBron James and Kyrie Irving, and the whole interview feels like sour grapes. "I think emotions are definitely running high right now," Love replied, when told about Taylor's criticism. "For Glen to say that, I think he should be concentrating on the players he just received."

    • Kevin Love was officially introduced by the Cavaliers on Tuesday, and he said he's "committed long term to the end goal, and that's to win championships."
      Advice: Love is expected to sign a long-term extension with the Cavs, but he said that hasn't yet been discussed. A core of LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Love makes the Cavaliers an instant championship contender and they've already lured veterans Shawn Marion, Mike Miller and James Jones to Cleveland. Love will start alongside Anderson Varejao in the frontcourt, but the Cavs still hope to add another center behind Varejao -- they've reportedly targeted Kosta Koufos and Timofey Mozgov.

    • Kevin Love will be wearing No. 0 for the Cavs this season, as No. 42 has been retired by the Cleveland franchise in honor of Nate Thurmond.
      Advice: It's not yet known why Love elected to go with No. 0, but purely speculating, in tennis, zero points is referred to as "love."

    • The Cavs, Wolves and Sixers have completed the Kevin Love trade.
      Advice: We all know the details and the only difference is that the Wolves will get a $6.3 million trade exception, not the $4 million reported yesterday. In case you weren't around the past month, the Cavs get Kevin Love; the Wolves get Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett, Thaddeus Young and that aforementioned trade exception; and the Sixers get Luc Mbah a Moute, Alexey Shved and a 2015 first-round pick.

    • The Kevin Love trade has officially been agreed upon, and the teams are now just awaiting approval from the league.
      Advice: The trade is a three-team deal in which Minnesota will send Luc Mbah a Moute, Alexey Shved (both expiring contracts) and a 2015 first-round pick (via the Miami Heat) to Philadelphia, in exchange for Thaddeus Young and a trade exception worth $4 million. And Cleveland will send two number one overall picks in Anthony Bennett and Andrew Wiggins to Minnesota in exchange for Kevin Love. Wiggins figures to be a primary option on the offensive end in Minnesota, and he'll be a mid-round target heading into this year's draft. Bennett showed promise during Summer League, but the fact he'll be playing behind Young makes him more of a late-round flier in standard leagues. Love will still be an elite talent in Cleveland, but it's unlikely he will be able to sustain his 26.1 points per game while playing alongside Kyrie Irving and LeBron James.

    • Iman Shumpert believes that his offense will improve in coach Derek Fisher's triangle offense.
      Advice: He's spent the summer strengthening his surgically-repaired left knee. "I know this year, this offense, I'll have a lot more opportunities to cut and get to the basket," he said, "so I just want to work on the strength in my leg and be able to jump off and be comfortable." Shumpert shot a measly 37.8 percent from the field last season and he faces heavy competition from Tim Hardaway Jr. and J.R. Smith, which takes the shine off his fantasy outlook.
