The Cleveland Cavaliers selected Andrew Wiggins with the #1 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft. They have multiple assets that they may look to move to add veterans to help draw LeBron James back to Cleveland. It is possible that Kevin Love could be that player. Reports earlier this week was that he wouldn’t stay in Cleveland, that has now been shot down:
Source who spoke with KLove says he would definitely "100 pct" stay in Cleveland longterm if LeBron is there

Broussard is close with James and his people. Adding Love to Wiggins and Kyrie Irving would be huge for bringing James home. What it would take for the Cavs to trade for Love would be interesting. If you see the Cavs make moves for young veterans or picks tonight that could be a sign of trying to gather assets to get Love.
It is doubtful that Wiggins would be a part of that deal but nothing can be excluded at this point. Wiggins defense, Love’s shooting, Irving’s playmaking and LBJ’s all around game would be a title contender in the near future.
The deal would require a number of draft picks and a number of young players, likely including Dion Waiters, in order to satisfy the Wolves desires. The current leader in the clubhouse was Klay Thompson and a draft pick from the Warriors. The Cavs should be able to beat that deal.
What do you think of the possibility of Love staying if James comes?
