The Kevin Love trade drama never seems to simmer for long before it’s bubbling and splattering out of the pan all over again.
At last report, the Wolves and Cavaliers hadn’t been talking about a Love trade for a while but something different is being said by the Minnesota Timberwolves owber Glenn Taylor, who directly stated that Love is more than likely to be traded to the Cavaliers at some point.
According to Sam Amico from FOX Sports Ohio, the Timberwolves may very well be waiting out Andrew Wiggins involvement in this Kevin Love trade, which is why the NBA scribe described the talks as ‘pending’ in his headline.
The Wolves say they expect to trade Love by Aug. 23 or 24. That time frame falls in line with when Cavaliers swingman Andrew Wiggins, the No. 1 overall pick in the June draft, is eligible to be traded after signing his rookie contract. Wiggins has reportedly been a centerpiece in trade talks involving the Timberwolves, Cavs and Love. Per league rules, the Cavs must wait 30 days from the day of signing Wiggins to trade him.
This is hardly something you’ll want to bet the farm on, but having Love in Cleveland and Wiggins back in Minneapolis is something that makes a lot of sense for the two different teams at two very different places in franchise history.
