Kevin Love trade rumors: Deal won't get done without Andrew Wiggins or Dion Waiters?


The Cleveland Cavaliers are looking at ways to improve the roster after landing LeBron James and the first place most people go with a suggestion is out west to Minnesota and All-Star forward Kevin Love.

But while the Wolves are looking to trade Love and the Cavaliers want him, the haggling over price has led to the deal to begin cooling on the hot stove. The main sticking point seems to be Andrew Wiggins and Dion Waiters — two players that have been rumored as being involved but pulled from discussions for various reasons.

That’s going to be an issue moving forward but it’s something hte Cavs have to look at realistically. They have a chance to pair LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love on the same team and form an unbeatable Big 3. That combo would be seemingly unstoppable and if it came at hte price of an unproven No. 1 overall pick and a guard who has been rumored to be on his way out anyways, then that’s a very small price to pay.

    Not happening. Period. Never. Get use to it. Wiggins is the future and his defense will be sorely needed. He wants to play with James and Irving so why give up so much when he can be signed when he becomes a unrestricted next season. So just wait it out.

      EXACTLY!!!!! plus love plays ni defense and irving plays even less defense so bron would be defenseless in cleveland

  • Real M-Fing talk !!!

    @Mercy2000:disqus and @reggieflenory:disqus
    You guys are correct But the Cavs are making the decision and it should have Cavs fans worried, The Owner had to pull a power play just to draft Wiggins…. i wouldn’t give up anything other than picks, if the Wolves don’t take it , sign Kevin as a free agent and fill the stop with a player like Blatche or use those picks and a player like Tristan and see if you can get Cousins
