That Kevin Love Trade Rumor Mill Is Now Going Full Force (So Many Tweets)
On July 12th, following Cleveland’s LeBron signing, Love declared he was “intrigued” by the idea of joining the Cavs, after having repeatedly expressed his frustrations with his current Minnesota Timberwolves. That’s when things started to get interesting.
Next, Cavs coach David Blatt said he wasn’t considering giving up #1 pick Andrew Wiggins in a deal for Love.
Sources say KLove remains “intrigued” by chance to join LeBron with Cavs. I’m told Wolves, though, still asking for off-limits AWiggins

Thanks, Marc for, five days ago, repeating what I JUST SAID. Then there was this:
LeBron James has reached to tell Kevin Love of his desire for them to play together with the Cavaliers, front office sources tell Yahoo.

Indeed, Cavaliers have put Andrew Wiggins on table in their effort to acquire Kevin Love from Timberwolves who been firm in trade demands.

but don’t forget about this old chestnut:
Cavs working three team deal w/ Warriors/TWolves. Warriors get multiple 1st rnd picks. Wolves get Klay and Tristan Thompson. Love to Cavs

Because today we have this:
Andrew Wiggins has not been offered for Kevin Love. Klay Thompson has not been offered for Kevin Love. This is where things stand.

So that should put matters to rest. In summary. Kevin Love will probably play professional basketball next year, likely in the NBA, and nobody has the foggiest notion where that might be.
