The Kevin Love trade drama continues for another day, despite there being little movement on the front as of late. There have been talks between the two teams but so far nothing has happened of any significance.
Despite there being no new talks between the Wolves and the Cavaliers, there is still news to be reported as there seems to be another addition to a possible Kevin Love trade. According to Bob Finnan from the Morning Journal & News-Herald, the Wolves are thinking about kicking in Corey Brewer as part of the Kevin Love trade offer.
Nothing can be announced until Aug. 23 – 30 days after Wiggins signed his contract with the Cavaliers. However, that falls on Saturday. The teams could delay the announcement until the following Monday, Aug. 25.
The crux of the trade appears to have the Cavaliers sending Wiggins, forward Anthony Bennett and a 2018 first-round pick to Minnesota for Love and possibly forward Corey Brewer.
It was reported last night — in this same pieces actually — that the Cavaliers and Wolves had framework in place for a Kevin Love trade and that appears to be what this is. Trading Andrew Wiggins isn’t something that the Cavaliers want to do, but if they want Love they can’t be greedy and unreasonable, they have to be one or the other.
This deal seems to fall somewhere in the middle of that.
