Sources: Cavaliers to Sign Top Pick Wiggins

Sources: Cavaliers to Sign Top Pick Wiggins

Christian Petersen/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Despite the rumored talks between Minnesota and Cleveland that include trading Andrew Wiggins for Kevin Love, sources now say the Cavaliers plan to sign their top draft pick later this week. Those same sources also say the delay in signing Wiggins has nothing to do with the apparent trade talks.
Instead, the Cavs have been reportedly weighing how to use the remaining $1.4 million available to them after signing the Kansas forward. Wiggins’ contract will net him in the neighborhood of a reported $5.5 million as a rookie. Once signed, Cleveland must wait at least 30 days before they can trade him. 
After the Cavs sign Wiggins, they are expected to ink Mike Miller to a two-year $5.6 million deal.
Cleveland has also been rumored to have interest in Ray Allen, a teammate with Miller in Miami. However, the Cavaliers would only be able to give Allen the league minimum of $1.4 million.
All of these front office moves have been to try and build the best possible team around returning forward LeBron James.

ESPN: Warriors Weighing Trade for Kevin Love

ESPN: Warriors Weighing Trade for Kevin Love

Minnesota Timberwovles/NBA(NEW YORK) — If the Golden State Warriors truly want to get their hands on Minnesota Timberwolves All-Star forward Kevin Love, they’ll have to pay a heavy price. ESPN reports that the team is seriously weighing their options to find what it would take to acquire him via trade.
Reportedly the Timberwolves are asking for a future first-round pick, Klay Thompson, David Lee, and maybe Harrison Barnes in exchange for Love and Kevin Martin.
That is a steep price to pay, but Love is arguably one of the best players in the NBA. This past season, the 25-year-old averaged 26.1 points and 12.5 rebounds per game. He was the only player in the NBA this past season to be in the top-5 in points and rebounds.
Despite Love’s immense talent, he hasn’t made it to the playoffs during his six-year career. While he hasn’t officially asked for a trade, he is likely to opt out of his contract next season to test free agency.
Other than the Warriors, the Denver Nuggets and Boston Celtics have reportedly engaged in trade talks for Love.

Ricky Rubio Will Pitch Kevin Love on Staying in Minnesota

Ricky Rubio Will Pitch Kevin Love on Staying in Minnesota

Thomas Northcut/Digital Images(NEW YORK) — With rumors growing that Minnesota Timberwolves All-Star Kevin Love wants to be traded sooner than later, his teammate, Ricky Rubio, will do his best to convince Love to stay with the organization.
“I don’t want to convince him if he doesn’t want to stay. But I want him to stay and I’m going to tell him what I think, which is we’ve been improving each year and he’s a great player, he helps us a lot,” Rubio told NBA.com.
“I think we need to make the next step. …The media says it’s pretty settled, but I don’t know what he thinks. What I’ve been hearing is from the media, not from him, so I don’t trust that. It can be an opinion from you guys. I just really want to talk to him as a teammate,” he continued.
While the team has improved their win total each season since Love and Rubio’s first season together in 2011, the Timberwolves still haven’t made the playoffs since Love entered the NBA in 2008.
