Kevin Love Officially Traded To Cleveland Cavaliers

In a breaking news report from ESPN, it appears that the Cleveland Cavaliers have finally acquired Kevin Love via trade. Dating back to the moment Lebron James arrived in Cleveland, rumors were swirling about Kevin Love and if he would end up there. The only problem with this was that the Cavs would have to trade for him and probably end up giving up their last few first round picks, including the current one, Andrew Wiggins.

Other deals were on the table for Kevin Love, including Golden State jumping in to see if they could make a big move to grab the big man. Many think that if the Warriors grabbed Love, they had a team that could compete next year. He was seen as their “one piece away.” Love seemed to always want to end up with the Cavs, however, and knew that if James went there, he would push for the trade.

Finally, the trade happened. The details of the trade seemed to be what everyone expected. The Cavs get Kevin Love, of course. The Minnesota Timberwolves get Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett, and a 2015 first round pick. The deal is actually good for both teams. This gives the Wolves some depth and a future pick to do with what they will, although we can probably expect it to NOT be the first overall this time.
