The Minnesota Timberwolves are trying to trade Kevin Love and it’s a situation that is even causing the All-Star forward to pull out of the FIBA World Cup and not participate on the Team USA roster.
But while Love won’t be playing for Team USA this summer, his focus is on where he will be playing in the fall and there’s hope that it won’t be in Minnesota. After a summer of endless trade rumors, it appears that Love has settled on playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers but it’s just a matter of finding a way how to get traded to Cleveland this summer.
According to Sam Amico from Fox Sports Ohio, the reported trade request that Kevin Love has told his agent may or may not have trickled down to the Minnesota Timberwolves just yet.
Sources could not say for certain whether Love or Schwartz have made a formal trade request to the Timberwolves. Most believe if such a request is made, the Cavs will be able to obtain Love at a considerably cheaper cost than what is being discussed by the teams.
This could be the Wolves just ignoring a factor that drops Love’s trade value for them, as a trade request would put the ball in Minnesota’s court and they’d have to lower their demands. Still, the Wolves can get decent return from the Cavaliers even if a trade request is made, which at this point it doesn’t seem as though it formally has.
