Report: Cavs and T-Wolves Have a ‘Handshake Agreement’ on Kevin Love

As Minnesota Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor recently admitted (in a quick and radical change of opinion), Kevin Love is well on his way to Cleveland. The Wolves and Cavaliers reportedly have an agreement in place for the All-Star forward. Per CSNNE:

Brian Windhorst on ESPN Radio: “The deal is done but not done. The teams have agreed, but they can’t say they have agreed and they can’t agree, because we’re in this weird moratorium period because you can’t trade Andrew Wiggins until the 23rd of this month.”


“So, between now and then – which is, what, 19 days – could some of that happen? Could a team come in with a trade that maybe Minnesota doesn’t see? Yes, it could happen. So therefore it is not done.”


“But essentially, before the papers have been signed, there is this handshake agreement that Kevin Love to the Cavs, Andrew Wiggins to the Timberwolves, and I believe Thaddeus Young will end up in Minnesota either as part of a separate deal or as part of a three-way deal. Possibly, Anthony Bennett, who’s on the Cavs right now could get re-routed to Philadelphia in part of a deal for Thaddeus Young. There will be draft picks involved.”
