Report: Bulls spice up trade offer for Love

ESPN reported on Monday that the Chicago Bulls had re-entered trade talks with the Timberwolves in an attempt to bring Kevin Love to the Windy City.

Details of what Chicago could offer Minnesota were unavailable until now. NBA reporter Chris Sheridan, the same man who broke the LeBron James going back to Cleveland news two days before it happened, lists three names the Bulls are offering for Love.

Sheridan's report comes less than 24 hours after Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times wrote that the Bulls have not re-entered talks with the Wolves. However, Darren Wolfson seconded Sheridan's report.

Gibson is an outstanding defensive forward, McDermott is a promising rookie and Mirotic is a 6-foot-10 sharpshooting power forward. According to the Chicago Tribune, Mirotic shot 46.1 percent on 3-pointers last year playing overseas for Real Madrid.

Wolfson reported Tuesday that Minnesota likes Doug McDermott and Gibson, but still prefers Andrew Wiggins – the No. 1 pick in the draft – in a potential deal with the Cavaliers.

McDermott signed his rookie contract with Chicago on Tuesday, so any trade involving him cannot be completed for 30 days. The same scenario could unfold in Cleveland with the expected signing of Wiggins. The 30-day window is an NBA mandated hold, but it wouldn't negate any possible trades.

Sean Deveney of Sporting News is reporting that the Celtics, 76ers and Nuggets are all interested in either acquiring Love or helping facilitate a trade that would send Love to Cleveland, Chicago or elsewhere.

Sources told Sporting News that Philadelphia and Denver, again, are interested in participating in whatever deal happens for Love. Denver has interest in acquiring Love themselves, while the Sixers would like to facilitate a trade by including forward Thaddeus Young.

Boston, another source said, would like to acquire Love, but would be willing to include some part of its trove of draft picks if they would help bring in a player who can contribute immediately.

Wolves Star Tribune beat reporter Jerry Zgoda says Thaddeus Young ending up in Minnesota wouldn't surprise him.
