TORONTO - Andrew Wiggins will officially be heading to Minnesota on Saturday and fellow Canadian Anthony Bennett will be joining him.

The deal sending Kevin Love to Cleveland for the past two No. 1 overall picks and more, the league's worst-kept secret, will finally be concluded Saturday, with a news conference expected Tuesday.

Bennett will not just be there for show. Some reports had him heading to Philadelphia immediately, in exchange for Thaddeus Young, but three sources told the Sun Thursday that Bennett's future is with the Wolves. That echoes recent reporting by Timberwolves beat writers Jerry Zgoda and Jon Krawzynski that Bennett would be staying put.

Two sources told the Sun Young still will be dealt by the Sixers to the Wolves, complicating the playing time picture for Bennett somewhat, since both are combo forwards.
