According to a report from Tony Rizzo of Cleveland's ESPN Radio affiliate, the Cleveland Cavaliers are making their move to get Kevin Love from the Minnesota Timberwolves. Rizzo believes that they have included first overall pick Andrew Wiggins in their offer.
Fox Sports Ohio's Sam Amico also believes that the Cavs are currently pursuing Love.
Source says Cavs also "pursuing a big." Won't give names, but hearing from other sources outside organization that "big" is Kevin Love.— Sam Amico (@SamAmicoFSO) July 9, 2014
This is crazy. I highly doubt that the Cavs would deal Wiggins unless they knew for certain that LeBron James is going to be on the roster next season. But who knows? Maybe Dan Gilbert and David Griffin are willing to gamble on the belief that this is their best chance to lure LeBron back to Cleveland.
You may also recall that ESPN's Chris Broussard reported a few weeks ago that Love would be willing to stay in Cleveland in LeBron is on the team.
Source who spoke with KLove says he would definitely "100 pct" stay in Cleveland longterm if LeBron is there— Chris Broussard (@Chris_Broussard) June 27, 2014
Stay tuned. Things are moving quickly.
