With LeBron in hand, the Cavs can think even bigger and look to create their own super-team by trading for Kevin Love. But are they willing to give up their prized rookie asset to do so?
Source: Cavs have told Wiggins he's not being traded. TWolves want Wiggins. Cavs will try 2 do it w/out losing Wiggins. Must find 3rd team— Chris Broussard (@Chris_Broussard) July 11, 2014
It also sounds like the Warriors are unwilling to give up Klay Thompson in a deal for Love.
The Warriors still have no plans to offer Klay Thompson to Minnesota for Kevin Love, even if the Cavaliers go hard to acquire Love in the wake of LeBron James’ imminent Cleveland arrival, according to two NBA sources. That’s the word for now: Status quo on the Warriors’ front, even though they want to remain in the hunt for Love.
So does this leave the door open for the Celtics to get back into the bidding? Especially now that they've added yet another draft pick to their arsenal? Perhaps, but I find it hard to believe that, given the opportunity, the Cavs won't cave and include Wiggins in the deal.
We'll see though.
To consider moving Love, Minn was looking for Klay Thompson or Wiggins. If both unavailable, Wolves have to rethink plan -- or do nothing.— Steve Bulpett (@SteveBHoop) July 11, 2014
Celts have never really been in serious contention for Love... still hoping Minn changes its mind or that they can get players Wolves want.— Steve Bulpett (@SteveBHoop) July 11, 2014
