2014 NBA Draft: Cavaliers Offered First Overall Pick For Kevin Love
With the 2014 NBA Draft just one day away, there is still uncertainty what the Cleveland Cavaliers will do with the first overall pick. While the team is deciding between Andrew Wiggins and Jabari Parker, Cleveland reportedly offered the pick as part of a package deal for Kevin Love according to Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski:
Cleveland pushed on deal centered on No. 1 pick for Kevin Love, but his refusal to re-sign w/ Cavs has killed talks, sources tell Yahoo.

Over the past week, all the trade speculation has been about Love. Although he was nearly dealt to Golden State, the Warriors ultimately did not want to part with Klay Thompson and the Timberwolves are not expected to trade him before the draft.
For the Cavaliers, they are exploring all options including potentially trading the pick. While Love would refuse to sign an extension if he was traded, Cleveland is hoping LeBron James returns and is a realistic destination for the four-time MVP.
