CLEVELAND CAVALIERS VIDEOS

August 7, 2014 Updates

The agreement would send Love to Cleveland for 2014 No. 1 pick Andrew Wiggins, 2013 No. 1 pick Anthony Bennett and a protected 2015 first-round pick. But the deal cannot be consummated until a 30-day moratorium on Cleveland's ability to trade Wiggins has expired. Simply put, the terms of the trade can be re-examined in the meantime, or either side could decide not to finalize the deal, league sources said. The whole scenario erected a tightrope between Cleveland and Minneapolis that both teams will have to walk for 16 days. Neither team was confirming the arrangement Thursday, for fear of reprisal from the league office over the 30-day rule, sources said. CBSSports.com

On one hand, rules are rules. On the other, a deal is a deal. Both teams will face enormous pressure from all parties involved to honor their word. "In this business," one party involved in the talks said, "nothing is done until it's done." CBSSports.com

The Warriors haven't spoken with Minnesota for weeks about Love trade scenarios, another league source said. That's due in part to their long-held reluctance to include Thompson in the discussions, but also due to the fact that the Cavs and Wolves settled on these basic deal points weeks ago -- before Love pulled out of his Team USA obligation, one of the league sources said. One rival GM told CBSSports.com that Minnesota has been exploring a separate trade with Philadelphia for Thaddeus Young, who would replace Love in the Wolves' starting lineup. CBSSports.com
