Apparently the PHI/MIN portion of the trade is Thad Young for MIA's protected 1st round pick, as well as a few of MIN's expiring deals, and thus both Thad and Bennett will be TWolves at the start of the year:

The Pros and Cons of Thad Young - Canis Hoopus

I guess we'll see in 10 days.

Well that's a different spin - even better move for the Wolves than I thought.

ah, it was news to me that the pick Cleveland planned to include in the trade belonged to Miami from the previous Lebron departure. That pick has a bit more value, since their is potential for Wade and Deng to miss a lot of games, leading to the Heat having a pick in the 15-18 range. And then Minny flips it to Philly for Thad. Okay, that makes a bit of sense. Philly is going full tank again, and probably figured Thad would leave very soon anyway, so why not?

@WojYahooNBA
Cleveland, Minnesota and Philadelphia have completed NBA trade call, source tells Yahoo. Kevin Love has joined LeBron James with the Cavs.

Just goes to show I was right about having reservations on the Wolves shipping out Bennett for Thad Young. With both of them now they actually aren't a half bad team as is. They'll still be a contender for a top 5 pick in the west though. Still, a win-win trade for everyone involved. Except everyone else in the Eastern conference.

It could even get better for Minny, especially if Thad Young has a great season. That way they could move him as an expiring contract for probably on younger asset or another 1st round pick.

I was really hoping though that Minny would have played hard ball and forced Cleveland to throw in Tristan Thompson, instead of making the Thad Young trade with Philly.

Either way, Minnesota are going to become pretty exciting over the next few years. Sadly though, I expect their management to fuck things up once again.
