Kevin Love August 2014

All signs point to the Cleveland Cavaliers landing power forward Kevin Love from the Minnesota Timberwolves by August 23 or 24. In addition, the Cavs would send rookie Andrew Wiggins to the T-Wolves.

ESPN's Brian Windhorst went on the radio to discuss the latest trade rumors regarding this situation. Windhorst confirms that the trade is close to being done.

"Oh, it's got traction," Windhorst told ESPN New York 98.7 FM on Monday. "The deal is done but not done. The teams have agreed but they can't say they've agreed and they can't agree because we're in this weird moratorium period. Because you can't trade Andrew Wiggins until the 23rd of this month. Before now and then could something happen? Could some team come in with a trade that maybe Minnesota see? Yes, it could happen, so therefore it is not done. But essentially, before the papers have been signed there is a handshake agreement that [would send] Kevin Love to the Cavs, Andrew Wiggins to the Timberwolves, and I believe Thaddeus Young will end up in Minnesota either as part of the deal or a separate deal."

Windhorst says that Anthony Bennett could go to the Philadelphia 76ers if they are involved in the trade between Cleveland and Minnesota. This, of course, leads to the rumor of Thaddeus Young going to the T-Wolves.

ESPN adds that other players likely to be involved in this blockbuster trade would be J.J. Barea, Kevin Martin or Alexey Shved.

Stay tuned to see what happens within the next few weeks.
