Ray Allen Satisfied With Trespassing Charges

10-time NBA All-Star Ray Allen and his wife are pleased that trespassing charges have been filed against the seven teens who entered their home last week in the wee hours of the morning.

The seven teens were charged with first-degree misdemeanor trespassing of an occupied structure Wednesday according to the Miami Herald.

Allen dismissed the notion that it was nothing more than a prank gone bad, and the group only wanted to see the inside of the Allen home when they entered through an unlocked door at 2:30 a.m.

Shannon Allen, Allen's wife, was awakened while sleeping with the couple's four young children.  She heard male voices discussing the couple's property and then encountered several individuals with flashlights in the bedroom and ran them off with her screams.

The charges carry a maximum penalty of one year in jail and a $1,000 fine.

Thaddeus Young Still Likely Headed To T-Wolves

Anthony Bennett now appears to definitely be staying in Minnesota as part of the Kevin Love for Andrew Wiggins trade that should get finalized this weekend.

It was previously believed that Bennett would be shipped to Philadelphia for Thaddeus Young after the deal completed.

Young is reported to still likely headed to Minnesota, with Philadelphia receiving Alexey Shved, Luc Richard Mbah a Moute and the first round pick from Miami that Minnesota will own.

Mbah a Moute is close with Joel Embiid, Philadelphia's prized #1 pick in the 2014 draft.

If it goes through, Minnesota would then ultimately be getting back Wiggins, Bennett and Thaddeus Young in exchange for Love, who was going to leave next year if he had not been traded.

Bennett For Young Deal Not Happening?

Anthony Bennett will not be headed to Philadelphia for Thaddeus Young according to Jerry Zgoda of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

Minnesota was reported to have a deal in place with Philly which was set to occur after the Andrew Wiggins for Kevin Love deal can get completed later this month.

Bennett was the #1 overall pick in the 2013 NBA draft and endured a rough rookie season with the Cleveland Cavaliers. However, he did show flashes of being able to be an effective player in the league.

If he does indeed remain with Minnesota, Bennett will join a young core that also includes Wiggins and first round pick Zach LaVine. Minnesota also has Shabazz Muhammad and Glenn Robinson Jr. on the roster as well.
