Kevin Love trade rumors: 76ers, Warriors could be third team in trade

The Cleveland Cavaliers are trying to find a third team to make a Kevin Love trade happen but that’s a lot easier said than done at the end of the day.

According to Sean Deveney of The Sporting News, the Philadelphia 76ers and Denver Nuggets are two teams to keep an eye on when it comes to being third teams in a three-team Kevin Love trade between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Minnesota Timberwolves.

Sources told Sporting News that Philadelphia and Denver, again, are interested in participating in whatever deal happens for Love. Denver has interest in acquiring Love themselves, while the Sixers would like to facilitate a trade by including forward Thaddeus Young.

The Sixers have come up a few different times now thanks to their reported interest in Dion Waiters but the Warriors getting involved could make things interesting as the Cavaliers could use assets like Harrison Barnes and David Lee to their advantage and maybe not have to give up as much as they do now.

There’s no saying that a third team will make a trade happen, but it’s looking like this won’t be a trade between just two teams.
