There has been a lot of hype about the Cleveland Cavaliers acquiring Minnesota Timberwolves power forward, Kevin Love. And that hype has been pretty convincing. It seems as though the Cavs are confident in somehow and some way, making a deal to entice the Timberwolves into trading him. Nothing has been put into motion just yet and now sources say that the Chicago Bulls have made a push to get Kevin Love as well. They entered into the wheeling and dealing late, but will be Cleveland's biggest competition.
The deal made with the Timberwolves for Cleveland to get Love would be headlined with this year's and last year's No. 1 overall picks, Andrew Wiggins and Anthony Bennett. Though, Cleveland sources are saying that Wiggins is very close to signing with the Cavs and if that does happen, he is unable to be traded for at least 30 days according to NBA rules and regulations. So if a trade does happen, it can't be finalized until a month after Wiggins' signing.
Now with LeBron James back in Cleveland, he has a lot to do with the team and who he wants surrounding him on the court. Even though James is highly intrigued and impressed with Wiggins' performance during summer league, the King is interested in the "win now" philosophy for Cleveland (as most of us are).
Acquiring Love is something that James is passionate about and a chance that Kevin, himself, wouldn't want to pass up. Cleveland's name is already being tossed around in the running for the NBA Championship and some have even dubbed them "The Beast in the East". If Kevin Love were to be traded to Cleveland, the possibilities and potential for the Cavaliers will be endless.
