NBA Trade Rumors: Kevin Love Headed To The Cleveland Cavaliers?

Share on FacebookTweet about this on Twitter

The trade rumors surrounding Kevin Love have been floating around the NBA over the past couple of months with the consensus being that the Minnesota Timberwolves will trade their superstar sooner rather than later.

Lakers Nation Store Is Back! Check Out The Latest Gear!

Love has made it clear that he will not sign a contract extension with the Timberwolves and as a result will likely be traded as some point between now and the NBA trade deadline next season.

One potential suitor for Love is the Cleveland Cavaliers after LeBron James agreed to return to the team in free agency. According to ESPN, Love would commit long-term to the Cavs:

Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love is “intrigued” by the idea of being traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers and would commit long term to the team, a source close to the situation told ESPN.com’s Marc Stein.

The Cavs are trying to build a title contender around LeBron and Love could be the final piece to the championship puzzle in Cleveland. The real question heading into trade talks involving the star forward is whether Cleveland would give up Andrew Wiggins in the deal.

– Think You’re The Biggest Lakers Fan? Take The Ultimate Fan Quiz! –

With LeBron not mentioning Wiggins or Anthony Bennett in his Sports Illustrated essay, the writing might already be on the wall in Cleveland. It’d be safe to assume that a potential Love trade was part of the pitch to LeBron to bring him back to Cleveland, but it remains to be seen if a deal can get done even if Love is willing to sign an extension with the team.

    Omg what then. Melo to the Cavaliers?

    • Ejavin808

      Maybe. That’s how NBA stars today. They don’t compete each but rather play together against mediocre team(s). This is no longer NBA in the 80s, 90s and early 2000s. This is the Cry Baby, Flopping, Uncompetitive era.

        • Mardorang

          Does she take her clothes off at this job?

  • http://people.ign.com/ltsjoemama ltsJoeMama

    Could they even afford Love? They already have Kyrie at max, LeBron at max (more than likely)
    Wouldn’t he have to take a MAJOR pay cut?

    • Kobe Gagnon

      Yeah I don’t think it’s happening they’ll keep wiggins. Don’t read into lebron not making mention of every player on their roster, including noobs fresh to the nba

      • stucktrader

        if they’re trying to win NOW… they will trade Wiggins… but that would be it… the only other choice… Waiters, Bennett and multiple (Nash-like 1st round picks)

    • kookiebuger

      The Cavs would have to trade Waiters,Wiggins, Thompson, and maybe Gee for Love or they will get another team involved but from what I’ve heard Wiggins camp doesn’t want to play for the Timberwolves, so he might force his way out of there.

      • Jim Cogar

        Gee is already gone, & Wiggins would be enough trade bait. I would hate to see him go, he’s got so much talent, but Love would make three superstars on the Cavs, with potential All-Stars like Waitors & Thompson added to the mix. Hello NBA Finals! Finally, a ring in Cleveland.

        • emanuel colon

          i feel bad for laker nation no ring 6 for kobe

        • stucktrader

          Yea… Wiggins is the minimum the Wolves have to get in return…

          The NBA draft with the Cavs sneaking in to the #1 pick led to all this chaos… the only good is that it split up the so-called big 3 in Miami…

          Cavs are trying to replicate Mia…
          Kyrie = Wade, Love = Bosh, but with young role players.
          Ray Allen of course will follow… but really he should check out going to OKC… or the Bulls…

    • Jeff

      I think that’s just the media and espn letting the lebron hysteria get them too excited.

      Part of what makes Cleveland an
      good destination is that they have another star young player and a bunch of good young players for depth. Trading that away to get another “big 3″ in lebron, love and Irving is pointless. They’ll be another top heavy team scrounging for cheap crappy role players.

    • kb24

      It will take effect in 2016(kyriemmax)

  • sena(believe it or not)

    lakers big 3=KOBE,MELO,LOVE

    • Raffaele D’Abrusco

      Dreams, sweet dreams.

    • roseducanna

      Never happen.

    • stucktrader

      Would have been possible had Jeanie not signed the check on Kobe’s extension… should have left it a blank slate… traded away Pau when they had a chance to PHX… for a 2nd rounder (not much, but useful…)

      The dream that would have been possible…
      PG: LBJ
      SG: KB
      SF: Melo
      PF: Randle
      C: Any rim protector/rebounder…
      Bench: Ray Allen, Bazmore would have resigned, Sacre, J. Clark

      I thought the following was possible:
      PG: Isaiah Thomas/J. Clarkson/Kane(betr than Marshall)
      SG: Kobe/Bazemore
      SF: Ariza/Xavier
      PF: Randle/Kelly
      C: Monroe/Sacre
      and hopefully find a few gems for the rest…

  • Edy

    So there building a championship team in cleaveland with Irving ,James, love while where building a senior citizen roster with kobe, Nash, probably boozer what a wonderful day in laker land I’m for ever disappointed

    • rival

      Don’t worry we might get Lin lol

    • comrade24

      Boozers not coming to LA.

      • stucktrader

        yup… no sign and trade happening…

        BUT… the highest bidder gets Boozer if he is amnestied.

        • comrade24

          do we really want boozer though? terrible defensively and inconsistent on offense.

  • DKWTTY

    This is some bullshit if this happens! Dan Gilbert was one of the owners who bitched to the league about CP3 coming to the Laker and now he gets #1 pick Kyrie, another #1 pick in Wiggins, their old #1 pick in Lebron AND Kevin Love? Veto that!

    • Jim Cogar

      You guys have all of those rings, and you have the nerve to whine. Cleveland deserves a winner, & we’re finally going to get one. We have the greatest fans in the world, & we will show it when both the Cavs AND the Browns win it all!

      • Matthew Kenney

        Browns! Hahahahahaha!!!

      • DKWTTY

        Shut your ass up. Cleveland doesn’t deserve shit. How many #1 picks do you need until you win? They had Lebron and lost him through their own incompetence and they DESERVE to win? You don’t have the greatest fans in the world. All of your records went down when Lebron left and you treated him like a runaway slave.

      • Silo Silo

        “Boo hoo. We never win. ” Listen man, everyplace has great fans to their team. Simple fact is Gilbert got cp3 vetoed, he, like most cavs fans are huge whiners

      • Tyrone Von Gilyard

        Let ne tell you something. I reside in Toledo, Ohio.. Fuck the browns and most def fuck the cavs. Its only 2 teams from ohio that matter to shit, Thats the indians and the buckeyes. Fuck the cavs getting a ring. And most def fuck the browns winning a superbowl

        • stucktrader

          Elway still haunts the browns to this day…

      • comrade24

        why are you even on this site? Lebron has his own site. go troll there.

      • Mardorang

        This is the most special blend of delusion and entitlement I’ve seen in a long time.

    • Jim213

      There there… no need to cry about CP3 who actually wanted to play for the clipps rather than Lakers. Let it go…
      http://articles.latimes. com/2012/sep/19/sports/la-sp-sn-chris-paul-gq-interview-20120919

      • DKWTTY

        Yeah you believe that-AFTER the fact moron. He called Kobe after and was pissed. There there no need to cry when the Rockets and Cavaliers win and we continue to lose. Should be real fun.

        • Jim213

          Don’t PMS over it… there’s other sources and available info that backs this up. Smh, you never managed to present vialble info to your argument. Cool tho as this is a different topic but (no diss) bitching and moaning about the past is a useless. No point to it now…

          • DKWTTY

            You sound like the one on the rag being passive aggressive and bitch like in your response to me from something that happened days ago. I don’t hold it against you and neither should you. Get over it and stop riding my top comment! Nick is coming back and Bosh is staying in Miami so finally some good news. Move around.

          • Andy Koz

            DKWITY – No you sound like you’re on the rag. Complaining about others when you’re the only one doing all the whining and bitchin. “Riding my top comment”… what kind of loser even says that? Probably just butthurt now that Miami is finished as a contender. Now back to your room to cry and touch yourself over those old Lebron pics. Peace faggot

          • DKWTTY

            Go eat a dick faggot. Why would I be on Lakers Nation if I’m a Heat fan? Only a dumbass fan would be happy that their team sucks. You want the Cavs to get Kevin Love? Are you retarded? Of course I’m going to complain about that shit when their owner is the reason CP3 isn’t a Laker. I’M A LAKERS FAN YOU ILLITERATE CUNT! Why would I be happy about Kevin Love going to Cleveland? Do you snort cocaine? You can go join the Cavs bandwagon and 14 people agreed with me so fuck off.

          • Andy Koz

            ahahahahaha. That was quality. Only question is… why u so butthurt though? You sound like a Heat fan.

          • DKWTTY

            Because you are retarded, hence your retarded ass reply. Are you even a Lakers fan? You are one of the ones who give us a bad name. Only an idiot would be glad that a team who made us lose a great player would be getting another great player. You sound like you have downs syndrome.

          • Troll Hunter

            I have found another troll lurking… and you are an angry little troll. Please put the keyboard down. tell your mom that you love her but that you decided to move out of her basement, and get yourself a girlfriend if you can find one trollboy.

          • Tyrone Von Gilyard

            So it just took 3 people to gang up on one person. For yall to complain of someone whining. Yall just did some real bitch shit. 3 dude gang up on one dude thats real soft..

          • DKWTTY

            I can handle it. Notice none of them have an argument for what I said and went straight to ad hominem attacks. These are the fake Lakers fans. They are all some soft punks. Correct!

          • DKWTTY

            9 comments. Hmmm which loser are you that I told off returning under a different username like a butthurt little girl? You dedicated your name and time to “trolls”…online. I couldn’t think of anything more wasteful of persons time. Tell your mom fuck off and die, then get your ass out her house and off the internet and find a real girlfriend you virgin fuck.

          • Jim213

            Lol, seems others favor my view but will save my venom for another time. :P

          • DKWTTY

            21 upvotes and other agreeing in the comments down below>>>a few retards who think the Cavs stacking players is good for the Lakers. Damn you stupid.

          • Jim213

            Smh, at my frienemy, you brought it up first (post).

          • DKWTTY

            AND?

          • Andy Koz

            just lol.

          • DKWTTY

            Jim you should really stop creating accounts to agree with yourself, it’s pathetic. lol at that.

          • Jim213

            jim213, There there… no need to cry about CP3 who actually wanted to play for the clipps rather than Lakers. Let it go…

            Jim213, Lol, seems others favor my view but will save my venom for another time. :P

          • DKWTTY

            So you not only like your own comments but create other accounts to agree with yourself and then copy and paste the entire conversation as if I didn’t see it. I guess you can’t count 21 likes>>>your alter egos “agreeing with you”.

          • Jim213

            You’re crazy as well as senile if you believe I’d waste my time replying or making up aliases. Bring reason to the convey not bitching and moaning. CP3 could’ve joined the Lakers if FO would’ve acted accordingly and not rushed the deal. Don’t care (CP3), b/c he ain’t winning a title in the near future.

            But the last post to in reply to your AND post. Keep believing I’d waste my time ion the likes of you lol, smh.

          • DKWTTY

            You like your own comments so I wouldn’t put it past you to create other accounts to agree with yourself. Funny enough all those accounts have less than 10 comments including the ones in response to me. What are the odds of that happening? I never see that on LN. You don’t care because he’s surrounded by losers, if he were a Laker then chances are Dwight would have come to LA willingly and the Lakers would be in a much better situation currently. I don’t know what kind of dumb fan is happy about that but you seem to constantly defy all logic.

            I’ll leave you and all those personalities in your head to keep arguing. You act like a scorned girl. You had an issue with me days ago so you’re going to reply negatively and argue with me all the time now no matter how right you know I am. One last time, more people agreed with me than you. Learn math.

          • Andy Koz

            Fuckin hell you’re in your own little faggot world. Keep telling yourself that it’s all one person dumbass. Get the admin to check I.P addresses if you really want. I’m from a different country fool and all those people are real.

          • DKWTTY

            Eat a dick butt hurt faggot. You seem mighty invested for someone who wasn’t addressed in this discussion you cunt. IP addresses can be scrambled dipshit and why the fuck would I go out of my way to prove what I already know? I didn’t reply to you again so why are you back? Kill yourself. You aren’t smart enough.

          • Jim213

            Just to let you know he’s a she.

          • Jim213

            You’re seriously hallucinating if you believe that LOL. The only person arguing is yourself with yourself . You’re seriously not making any sense. If CP3 wanted to be a Laker he wouldn’t have promised the Clipps to re-sign with the team and signed with the Lakers which likely would’ve increased the odds of re-obtaining DH.

            LMAO you need a psychiatrist to help you with your hallucinations. Don’t have any issues with you b/c you can’t carry a serious argument as proven recently. Could care less what you think. Just wanted to point out that CP3 preferred the Clipps over the Lakers and you start PMS-ing over a previous argument. Must have forgot to take your meds smh.

          • Andy Koz

            Hey Jim can you believe this idiot? He’s just calling me whatever i call him like he has no brain of his own lol. I call him a butthurt faggot then he calls me exactly the same thing. bahahahaha

          • DKWTTY

            Waiting an hour between your alias posts doesn’t throw anyone off. Weren’t you the paranoid one who said I work for LN? Yes it was you. So I guess that accusing me stuff was projection on your part? Doesn’t feel so good to be accused of something, huh? Let us not forget you are the clown who said MARSHON BROOKS scored 66 points in a game. L-O-L!!

            There is a difference between re-signing with a team you are already with and made better and a team he never played for that went downhill in that same time.

            I have destroyed literally every argument you have tried to with me, so much so that weeks later you are randomly replying to me still upset. Unlike you I don’t hold your indiscretions against you and bring it up weeks later just to annoy you. The phrase is “I couldn’t care less”. If you could care less that means you DO care. #helpful

            I was just pointing out that 1. I don’t care about your opinion and 2. That was a lie. Sorry if your girlie feelings got hurt. You reply in an arrogant, condescending, provoking manner and use that misogyny shit again then wonder why I destroy you?

          • Andy Koz

            Sorry but what exactly have you “destroyed”? It appears you have many people disagreeing with what you say – that should tell you that the issue is not with everyone else but entirely only with yourself.

            To even TRY and tell yourself that it’s all the same person under different names when it’s clearly a range of different posters shooting you down is borderline insane. You have gone right past that and actually convinced yourself that it’s all 1 guy out to get you! You need serious help.

            There are ways to actually check that the comments are coming from different and individual people against you. Or are you too scared to find out the fact that it’s the truth? I guess you would be because your entire delusional arguments depend on it! Everything you’ve ever said here will be blown apart when you find out it was actually many different people all along.

          • Jim213

            Smh, thankfully you’re not on the payroll lol (LN’s) mistaken b/c you couldn’t write a 200 word article about Lakers news/rumors. You’re seriously paranoid if you believe I’d spend my time on the likes of you lol. Yes, should’ve done better research on Brooks (mentioned that already while admitting mishap) but given Bazemore and Meeks chose other teams likely related to better pay can’t compare the two better options to Young who’s still in the roster for now (trade bait down the road).

            Seriously you fail to present a good argument and settle for PMS-ing rants as others have mentioned (not me). Don’t care about your rants but if you’d done your homework you should’ve known why CP3 preferred the Clipps over the Lakers. You must be on some serious meds to believe I’d waste time creating other names to argue with you LMAO.

            My replies are arrogant? lol, not the one talking bs when someone disagrees while presenting their own view as you get real defensive about things. No diss but something must have occurred to you in the past for you to bitch so much aside of being delusional.

            Seriously, often find myself passing your posts given the lack of viable info you bring. But the CP3 bitching and moaning is comical especially since you believe I’d waste that amount of time replying to a medicated poopy head.

            Your English teachings are obtuse in itself. Check the Oxford Dictionary who lists both as having the same meaning tho couldn’t is correct but not writing a paper here LOL. It’s native tongue tho as the other dude (native) brought up you keep repeating the same thing when arguing (repetitive).

            Hell if you could carry a serious convey with someone has a different view we wouldn’t be posting useless replies just as you’ve done with the others. You’re making yourself look even more incompetent with your belief about other bloggers aside of your not stop bitching.

    • stucktrader

      Dude, that is probably one of the most annoying things… the fact that the Cavs landed the #1 pick… led to Kyrie resigning and LBJ being back…

      To me the draft should protect those that have the worst records 1-6(no lower than 6), then 7-12(no lower than 12)…

      Yea… the commish has to Veto any trade for Love that doesnt include Wiggins in the deal…

  • Jay Silva

    I dont care anymore. I just want to see lakers win a championship during my lifetime. These new generation players are so over their heads seeking help any way possible. Its a disgrace to the NBA and to the fans of any team. Before money didnt even mattered, now they trade contracts not players. Embarrasing. I just want to see one of my favorite players i saw growing up win again.

    • Jeff

      Amen

    • roseducanna

      I and every LAKERS’ fan want LAKERS get championship. But who are the players made our dream.

  • kookiebuger

    Time to rebuild.

  • roseducanna

    LAKERS can’ t sign with JAME ,MELO,LOVE for next two years.

  • koby1998

    I hope this plan b is even better then what we had last year as a squad and attract big names In 2015 and rising up stars like klay Thompson ,Marc gasol , Kevin love , rajon rondo now that will be great !! And not try this you can choose your coach and Hollywood stuff pitch because that was a fail

  • wangkon936

    Wow. Kevin Love turns on his iPad, see’s LeBron go to Cleveland and says, “interesting.” Then the internet goes bananas with speculation that he is going to get traded to the Cavs. I love the internetz!

  • John Blackman

    We must prepare for our years of wandering the desert before returning to championship contention. Love would have been a great thing for us to build our future around, but like others he isn’t focused on a Lakers career. If the Lakers have any chance of being a factor in the next 5-6 years it will only be through key mid-level acquisitions (not the likes of Jeremy Lin) and excellence in drafting. Julius Randle was a great start. It’s one of few things the organization has gotten right lately. #CurseOfJimmyBuss

  • Laker4life

    I don’t see this mother F$&@@ making a latter to the commissioner about how stak is his team now but when we could got Chris Paul hi was bishing

    • One Mic

      There’s a new commissioner and so far he hasn’t blocked anything which is good.

    • Troll Hunter

      A tissue for your little troll tears?

  • Bruce

    Don’t know if any of you noticed, during Lebron’s announcement, he did not once mentioning 2 names, Anthony Bennett, and Andrew Wiggins, so most likely it’s them 2 plus draft picks for K Love plus Kevin Martin.

    • Troll Hunter

      Or he just didn’t feel like mentioning every member on the team especially an overated rookie that hasn’t played a game in the NBA

  • Edy

    We should Veto that trade just like cavs veto chris Paul coming to the lakers

  • Yarden Rafiezadeh

    Imagine the starting 5 of Kyrie, Wiggins, LeBron, Love, and Varejao that would be amazing but they would have to be willing to trade they’re best young player who have a lot of potential. MIami’s problem was that they had no good bench players. Now Cleveland to my opinion does. If they trade for Love that could all go away. Not worth it to my opinion
