There has been no shortage of rumors as the Timberwolves look for a power forward at the NBA trade deadline. On Saturday, another target emerged as a report states that the Wolves are one of six teams interested in Cleveland Cavaliers forward Larry Nance Jr.

Cleveland.com's Chris Fedor says the Timberwolves have been "aggressively" pursuing Nance since the offseason, but they're not alone. 

The Philadelphia 76ers, Boston Celtics, Miami Heat, Dallas Mavericks and New Orleans Pelicans have also inquired about the 28-year-old but the Cavaliers would have to be "completely blown away" by an offer in order to trade him.

One offer the Cavaliers have reportedly received included "multiple late-round picks."

The Timberwolves have been a popular destination for power forwards across the league leading up to the Mar. 25 deadline. Minnesota has also been linked to Orlando's Aaron Gordon and Atlanta's John Collins as it searches for an upgrade next to Karl-Anthony Towns.

Nance has averaged 9.3 points, 6.8 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game for the Cavaliers this season, but has been out since Feb. 7 with a hand injury.
