Twitter might break if Kevin Love to Cleveland trade rumors continue circulating. The story has been developing throughout the day on Wednesday.

The latest comes from Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

The news out of ESPN Cleveland is that the Cavaliers have a deal on the table that would send the No. 1 pick in the draft Andrew Wiggins to the Wolves for Love, as reported by LegionReport.com.

Rizzo said on ESPN 850 that he “has heard this deal has been in the works for about a month."

According to CBS Sports, the Cavaliers want to compete next year, and their No. 1 pick – now Wiggins – is attractive to the Wolves.

The question has always been would Love re-sign in Cleveland? If James was headed to Cleveland, too, then Love presumably would.

FOX Sports Ohio NBA columnist Sam Amico is hearing that Cleveland is after Love, too.

Jon Krawczynski of the Associated Press reports that a trade agreement is not in place, but things could change if LeBron signs with Cleveland. That's a huge mystery at this point.

However, Wojnarowski tweeted an interesting nugget about LeBron.

Mike Miller and Ray Allen are now being targeted by the Cavs, according to ESPN's Chris Broussard. In addition to that, the Cavs pulled off a massive three-team trade today – a move that cleared enough cap space to offer LeBron a max contract, per Yahoo Sports.

According to Pro Basketball Talk, LeBron left his meeting with Pat Riley today with committing to a deal with the Heat.

Are these signs that LeBron is quite possibly headed back to Cleveland? Who knows, but this developing story is worth following.

Stay tuned.
