Report: Cavs offer trade for Love; Love open to joining LeBron


The King is returning to his original throne in Cleveland, and with that, the door for Kevin Love to join LeBron James and Kyrie Irving could be opening.

According to ESPN's Marc Stein, Love might be open to signing a long-term deal to play in Cleveland.

ESPN's Chris Broussard is hearing that the Cavs have opened trade talks by offering Dion Waiters, Anthony Bennett and a first-round pick for Love.

This all on the heels of a report earlier this week that said the Cavaliers had a trade on the table that would send the No. 1 pick in the draft Andrew Wiggins to Minnesota for Love.

Is that still the case now that LeBron is headed home? Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune picked up on something LeBron didn't write about in his essay.

Read the essay and you'll notice this: LeBron talks about how he wants to mentor and raise Kyrie Irving, Tristan Thompson and Dion Waiters right. Glaringly, he never made mention of consecutive No. 1 picks Andrew Wiggins and Anthony Bennett.

The price will be Wiggins -- and other pieces inclulding draft pick(s) and perhaps Bennett -- and right now it's not clear just how eager the Cavaliers will be to do so.

Did LeBron intentionally leave Wiggins and Bennett out of his article because he knows something everyone else doesn't?

The Big Lead says there is "no way" LeBron didn't intentionally leave Wiggins out of his measured article.

Ken Berger of CBS Sports is hearing the Wolves will indeed have a shot to land Wiggins.
