The Cavaliers have relented and are willing to include Andrew Wiggins in a deal involving Kevin Love, the Lake County News-Herald reported on Thursday.
The Cavs and Minnesota Timberwolves re-engaged in trade talks this week, multiple league sources said, in an attempt to bring Kevin Love to the Cavaliers.
Talks between the two teams were dormant until LeBron James returned to the Cavs last week, changing the landscape of negotiations and bringing the two teams back to the table.
One source with knowledge of trade discussions told the Beacon Journal even before James’ decision “no one is untouchable” on the Cavs in relation to a Love deal. That excludes Kyrie Irving, who isn’t eligible to be traded for six month after signing his extension.
Coaches and front office executives polled in Las Vegas during summer league agreed that James will ultimately have the final say on the pursuit of Love. If he instructs the team to make a deal, they will.
