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.
One exec on Cavs chance at K-Love w/out including Andrew Wiggins. "No way. If I'm Minnesota, I want Wiggins, Dion Waiters and two No. 1's."

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.
