Timberwolves Turn Down Cavs' offer of Dion Waiters, Anthony Bennett For Kevin Love

The Minnesota Timberwolves are on the clock to deal Kevin Love, who can be a free agent after this year, and the franchise apparently turned down a hefty offer from the Cavaliers.

According to Chris Broussard, the Cavs offered Anthony Bennett, the No. 1 overall pick in last year’s draft, as well as Dion Waiters, in addition to a future first-round pick.

The deal won’t go down because the Timberwolves are obsessed with obtaining Andrew Wiggins, a player whom the Cavs have no interest in moving, according to Brian Windhorst.

The report suggested that the Cavs may have to get creative to add Love, and that a third team may be brought in to help facilitate a trade.

Minnesota can’t be faulted for trying to get something for the franchise’s best player, but the organization may have to curb their demands.

The Warriors were interested in Love until the asking price became Klay Thompson. That didn’t sit well with new coach Steve Kerr, and a trade that seemed likely has cooled considerably.

Love and Wolves haven’t made the playoffs together in six seasons.

What do you consider a fair offer to be for Kevin Love, if your Cavs’ GM David Griffin?
