Cleveland Cavaliers may trump Bulls Kevin Love trade offer with first-round picks

The Chicago Bulls have stormed out of the complete blue to all of a sudden dominate the Kevin Love trade talks these past few days, which is both surprising and suspect depending on how you view the supposed offer that was made.

According to Chris Sheridan from Sheridan Hoops,the Cavaliers may be in hot water when it comes to their chances of landing Kevin Love but they have the assets to get back into the race if they truly want to, which is why this all may be a giant smokescreen created by the Timberwolves.

The source who spoke to SheridanHoops said he believed the Bulls offer was better in the minds of the Wolves than the Cavs’ current offer of Wiggins, Anthony Bennett and a No. 1 pick.
But if Cleveland is willing to include a second future No. 1 pick (Cleveland owns the rights to Miami’s first rounder as well as Memphis’ in 2015), it might be enough to trump Chicago’s offer.
Cleveland has the assets to offer Minnesota what they want but they’ve increasingly gotten cold feet when it comes to making a deal happen, which has been an issue in this whole trade situation. Throwing in the two first rounders could sweeten the pot but if the Bulls offer is real then it’s hard to see Minnesota passing on that.
