Earlier on Saturday, Taylor had this to say about the Love situation (via Pioneer Press).
I’m saying it’s most likely because Kevin has made it pretty clear that that’s what he wants to do.
Let’s do the math here quickly. The Cleveland Cavaliers signed Andrew Wiggins on the 24th of July. If Taylor’s time frame is correct, it means that a trade for Love will likely go down once Wiggins is able to be traded, which takes effect 30 days after signing his rookie deal.
The NBA team store just recently discontinued Wiggins’ jerseys online, which is another indication that the league believes a deal btween the Cavaliers and Timberwolves is imminent. If Cleveland is able to add Love to the mix with LeBron James, it immediately becomes the odd-on favorites to win the 2014-2015 NBA championship.
