A few NBA players, coaches, and analysts weigh in on the trade that sent Kevin Love to the Minnesota Timberwolves
The Minnesota Timberwolves traded a first-round pick in 2020 and two first- and second-round picks in 2021 to the Cleveland Cavaliers for Kevin Love, the team announced Tuesday.
The deal was first reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
Wojnarowski said the Cavs will receive the pick from the Timberwolves in 2020 (pick No. 24), 2021 (pick 25), and 2022 (pick 26).
The Timberwolves have been linked to Love since the season started.
ESPN’s Chad Ford reported last month that the Wolves were considering making a trade to move Love, who averaged 20.5 points, 8.5 rebounds, and 2.7 assists last season.
The Timberwolves’ draft picks come with the trade.
The pick is not guaranteed to Minnesota, but the Cavs would have a first and second round pick in 2019, 2020, and 2021.
