Saunders: 'We're not trading Kevin Love'


A report from Sheridan Hoops says the Cleveland Cavaliers are interested in trading the No. 1 overall pick in the June 27th NBA Draft to the Timberwolves for All-Star forward Kevin Love.

It's just a report, and it's highly unlikely to happen.

Wolves president of basketball operations Flip Saunders told KFAN-FM 100.3 on Friday that trading Love would be nothing short of "absurd."

Love played in only 18 games last season due to injury. In the 2011-12 season, Love was in the mix for league MVP after averaging 26 points and 13.3 rebounds per game.
