The Wolves also signed veteran guard Mo Williams this week, making fellow vet J.J. Barea -- who sources say Minnesota is determined to offload as part of a Love deal -- more available. It's believed the Wolves hope to convince Cleveland to take Barea as part of a Love trade or find a third team to absorb Barea's expiring contract. ESPN.com

Minnesota wants a package for Love to include guard J.J. Barea, who has $4.5 million left on his expiring deal – and possibly guard Kevin Martin, who has three years and $21 million left. As part of a larger deal, the Cavaliers want to include 2013 No. 1 overall pick Anthony Bennett and a future No. 1 pick for Love. Yahoo! Sports

For those who missed the memo, the summer of 2015 is a large priority for quite a few teams because of Kevin Love. The T'wolves star can opt out of his deal at that time, and first-year team President Flip Saunders is well aware that missing the playoffs for a seventh consecutive season would certainly not help his campaign to keep him in town. Translation: The T'wolves should be on the personnel prowl. Among their players thought to be available are point guard J.J. Barea, forward Dante Cunningham and guard Alexey Shved. USA Today Sports

"I understand that my private life should belong to me alone, but seeing the insinuations that have appeared in the media that are not true, I decided to deal with the situation and speak openly about it. Zuleyka and I have not been together for some time," Barea said. GlobalPost
