Kevin Love Trade Rumors: Cavaliers have framework in place for trade

The Kevin Love trade drama just doesn’t go away and it seems we can’t go a day without new rumors popping up left and right to keep things interesting.

Despite there being no new talks between the Cavaliers and Timberwolves regarding Kevin Love in recent days, it appears there has been progress made as the Kevin Love trade might be closer than we all think.

According to the Morning Journal, the framework for a Kevin Love deal has been agreed upon and it’s just a matter of time before the deal is made. That being said, there are many moving parts left in the trade that could change at any point despite the framework being done.

It appears the framework of the Cavaliers-Timberwolves trade is done. However, there are still some moving parts in the possible deal. The Cavaliers would prefer to hang onto rookie swingman Andrew Wiggins. That much is true. However, the Timberwolves probably won’t make the trade unless Wiggins is included. Timberwolves president/coach Flip Saunders might get booed out of the state of Minnesota if he traded three-time All-Star Kevin Love to the Cavaliers and didn’t bring back Wiggins.

Of course, this isn’t the first time we’re hearing about a potential deal and it won’t be the last. The fact of the matter is, we won’t believe a deal is done until it actually is, and that won’t happen until at least the end of August, but the framework for a deal being in place is something that is encouraging to the Cavaliers, even if Love won’t sign an extension with the Cavaliers if traded there.
