The Cleveland Cavaliers are trying to find a way to acquire Kevin Love this summer but so far either the Wolves have gotten in the way of things or the Cavaliers own superstitions have.
Either way, no trade has been agreed upon and the stand off continues into what looks to be another month of back and forth between the two sides.
According to Terry Pluto of The Plain Dealer, though, the back and forth has cooled for the most part over the last few days as the Cleveland Cavaliers and Minnesota Timberwolves have not talked about a trade in a week. That’s not good for fans hoping to see some sort of resolution out of this entire matter.
I’ve been told the team hasn’t had any real talks with Minnesota Love for at least a week. Minnesota certainly enjoys all the rumors. Team president/coach Flip Saunders knows he has to make the right deal. The former Cuyahoga Heights star is taking over a 40-42 team that wants the playoffs this season. That’s why the Wolves pursued a deal with Golden State starting with Klay Thompson and David Lee — two established scorers.
This doesn’t mean that trade talks are dead, but it means that things are taking a cooling off period so that proper emotions can be brought to negotiations.
Love is leaving Team USA this summer and potentially giving up a guaranteed spot on the 2016 Olympic roster to see where trade talks go, which is only going to put pressure on a situation that for the most part sounds like it’s laying dormant for the time being.
