Minnesota Timberwolves want future first round picks in Kevin Love trade

The Cleveland Cavaliers are in hot pursuit of Kevin Love at the moment but they can’t seem to land him in a trade despite the Wolves seemingly wanting to get rid of him as fast as they can.

A new report suggests that the Wolves are ready to deal Love to the Cavaliers but the Cavs are unwilling to meet the demands being set fourth.

According to Jeff Goodman from ESPN.com, the Wolves demands include the Cav’s 2015 first-round pick from the Miami Heat as well as a protected pick from the Memphis Grizzlies.

This isn’t a whole lot to ask for if you’re Minnesota so it’s a bit surprising to see the Cavs balk at the offer that seems like it should be the easiest to make. There’s no Wiggins, not Waiters and seemingly no problem.

Both Minnesota and Cleveland are in contact on a daily basis which shows that the process is slow but it’s there nonetheless and something might get done as both sides continue to double down on one another.
