CLEVELAND (AFP) - The Cleveland Cavaliers have reached a tentative agreement to trade the two most recent number one overall picks to the Minnesota Timberwolves for star forward Kevin Love, US media reported Thursday.

The Cavaliers will send 2014 overall top draft pick Andrew Wiggins and last year's No. 1 selection, Anthony Bennett, to the Wolves, Yahoo Sports reported on Thursday.

Wiggins and Bennett are the first two Canadian players to be taken first overall in back-to-back National Basketball Association draft years.

Minnesota would also get a first-round choice in 2015 in exchange for Love, a three-time NBA all-star who has reportedly stated that he would opt out of his contract with the Wolves in 2015.
