The Timberwolves have been steadfast in their stance when entertaining trade offers. They know what they want and are unwilling to part with Love right now unless they get what they want in return.

The Cavs were reluctant to include Wiggins in a deal but realize the only way to get Love is to trade Wiggins to Minnesota. Wiggins has not signed his rookie deal with Cleveland yet, and once he does, he cannot be traded for 30 days. If Wiggins signs soon, the Love-to-Cleveland sage could drag on for at least the next month. USA Today Sports
