HoopsHype Kevin Love rumors

July 23, 2014 Updates

"When a deal like this takes a long time, there are going to be more ants circling the picnic," one front-office source told Sporting News. "This is not likely to be a one-to-one trade." Sporting News

Sources told Sporting News that Philadelphia and Denver, again, are interested in participating in whatever deal happens for Love. Denver has interest in acquiring Love themselves, while the Sixers would like to facilitate a trade by including forward Thaddeus Young. Sporting News

On top of all that, there are league-wide whispers of a third team perhaps getting involved in a potential Cavs-Wolves deal, whispers of the 76ers possessing a strong interest in Cavs guard Dion Waiters, whispers of another major transaction on the way. Yeah. Unreal. FoxSports.com

Doug McDermott wouldn’t be an immediate option, after the team announced he signed his contract early Tuesday afternoon, which according to NBA rules, makes it so a rookie can’t be traded until at least 30 days after he puts his name on the dotted line. Chicago Sun-Times

Cleveland's discussions with Minnesota have escalated with the Cavaliers' willingness to include No. 1 overall pick Andrew Wiggins in the deal, sources said. Without Wiggins, there's no other combination of Cleveland players and picks that would interest Minnesota. Once Wiggins signs his rookie contract, a trade involving him can't be formally completed for 30 days. Yahoo! Sports

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
