NEW YORK -- The Minnesota Timberwolves have dealt No. 3 pick
O.J. Mayo to the Memphis Grizzlies for Kevin Love in an eight-player, late-night blockbuster trade.
The Grizzlies have confirmed the deal and plan to hold an early
morning news conference.
Love was chosen fifth by Memphis.
The Timberwolves also receive guard Mike Miller and frontcourt
players Brian Cardinal and Jason Collins from Memphis in exchange
for the draft rights to Mayo, forward Antoine Walker and guard
Marko Jaric and Greg Buckner.
The deal allows the T-Wolves to dump Walker, who was unhappy
riding the bench on a young team, and Jaric's contract, which has
three years and more than 21 million dollars remaining.
