Sports Buzz: Kevin Love Trade Talks With Cavaliers Heating Up
Cavaliers-Timberwolves Deal for Kevin Love Coming Soon?
It’s not a matter of if, just when. According to ESPN, the Minnesota Timberwolves are only talking to the Cleveland Cavaliers — and no other team — to move All-Star power forward Kevin Lovein a possible trade. Another indication that the trade may be happening soon is that Love withdrew from Team USA competition last week and Cavs power forward Anthony Bennett was just pulled from Toronto Pro-Am competition on Tuesday. The same agent represents both players. If reports serve true and Andrew Wiggins is involved in the deal, then August 23 will be the earliest date that the trade can be executed. Cleveland signed Wiggins to a rookie contract last week and NBA rules stipulate that a team trying to trade a rookie must wait at least 30 days to officially execute a deal.
