The Cleveland Cavaliers pulled off the move that has shocked the basketball world as they’ve managed to get LeBron James to return to the place where he started out his career and come back to Cleveland.
One player who has been increasingly linked to LeBron James and his decision is Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love. It was stated that the Cavs might need to trade for him to get LeBron to come back but now that LeBron is indeed back, the pursuit of a Love trade hasn’t gone away.
Source close to situation says Kevin Love indeed "intrigued" by idea of being dealt to Cavs and would commit long there if traded there

This is all proof of the power LeBron possesses. Just a month ago the Cavaliers couldn’t trade the No.1 overall pick for Love as he wouldn’t commit to signing with Cleveland long-term but what a difference a single decision can make.
Love being traded to the Cavaliers would likely require Andrew Wiggins to be traded but the Cavaliers have already accomplished the impossible and might as well go after Kevin Love at this point as there seems to be no stopping them from getting what they want.
