Report: Bulls Could Re-Enter Kevin Love Trade Sweepstakes If Cavaliers Balk

Kevin LoveWhat LeBron James wants, LeBron James usually gets. But the NBA’s best player isn’t the only party pushing the Cleveland Cavaliers to make a decision on Kevin Love.

The Love sweepstakes keeps dragging on, but the Minnesota Timberwolves reportedly are willing to “pull the trigger” on a trade with the Cavs, Gery Woelfel of the Racine (Wisc.) Journal Times tweeted Tuesday. Except now it’s the Cavs who are balking, apparently at Minnesota’s request for future No. 1 picks.

Cleveland can’t wait too long to make up its mind, however, as a dark horse continues to lurk in the background. [tweet align=’center’] [tweet align=’center’]

If Nikola Mirotic, a Montenegrin stretch-four, is made available by the Chicago Bulls, the Love saga may experience its first bidding war. Mirotic is highly regarded around the league — arguably higher than the Cavs’ No. 1 draft pick, Andrew Wiggins, by some — and his arrival in the NBA has been anticipated for a long time. Mirotic, 23, will make his NBA debut this season after playing the last three seasons with Real Madrid.
