Talks have continued since James opted to return to Cleveland.
The Cleveland Cavaliers are reportedly offering No.1 overall Draft pick Andrew Wiggins in a bid to trade for Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love, ESPN reports.
It is understood that the two teams have been engaged in discussions since LeBron Jeames secured a return to Cleveland last week, and the move promises to significantly shift the balance of power in the Eastern Conference with the Cavs continuing to strengthen.
Although coach David Blatt has insisted that they are just rumours at this point, it is reported that the Cavs had previously refused to include the NBA prospect in any such deal, but with James reportedly reaching out to Love, it remains to be seen whether or not the franchise would be willing to sacrifice one of the most talented long-term pieces on their roster.
Wiggins had 21 points on 3-of-5 shooting and five rebounds in the 96-90 loss to the Houston Rockets in the NBA Summer League on Thursday, and is understood to be in discussions about signing with the Cavaliers.
Meanwhile, the Timberwolves are also understood to be discussing a possible trade deal with the Golden State Warriors for Love.
The Warriors have offered All-Star David Lee and Harrison Barnes as part of the deal, but their unwillingness to include Klay Thompson is ensuring that the offer has been rejected thus far.
As a result, should Love opt to join Cleveland, it would mark a significant moment for the organisation as they continue to emerge as a potential favourite to come through the East to reach the NBA Finals next season.
After sealing the return of James, the Cavaliers already have one of the most talented point guard’s in the game in the shape of Kyrie Irving, while Mike Miller and the potential arrival of Ray Allen would continue to make them an all-round threat.
Should Love be added to the equation, it would be concerning for the remaining teams in the East who would have a difficult time in competing with such a talented roster.
