Kevin Love trade rumors: Andrew Wiggins not offered in trade

The Cleveland Cavaliers pulled off a miracle in bringing back LeBron James this year but they are hardly done with offseason drama.

Kevin Love remains on the open trade market but there has still been no deal made for him despite interest from basically everyone in basketball. The Golden State Warriors at one time looked to be frontrunners to land Love but their reluctance to toss Klay Thompson into a trade package stalled talks out west.

The same now appears to be happening with the Cavaliers as Andrew Wiggins’ availability in a trade seems to be constantly in flux as he’s gone from not being available to being available to now once again being not available in a Kevin Love trade scenario.

Per Bob Finnan from the News-Herald:

The Cavaliers insist rookie swingman Andrew Wiggins has not been offered in a possible trade for Minnesota Timberwolves power forward Kevin Love.

No one involved would guarantee it wouldn’t happen at a later date, but for now the Cavaliers will proceed in Love negotiations without using the mercurial Wiggins as a trade chip, a source told The News-Herald.

And thus continues that violent back and forth of the NBA trade rumor mill. Wiggins may end up getting traded for Love and the resistance on the part of the Cavs to trade Wiggins for arguably the best power forward in the game today has sparked a fierce debate about what the team should decide to do.
