The Bulls are back in the mix for Kevin Love.
According to ESPN.com, Chicago is making a late push to try to get into discussions with the Timberwolves for the All-Star forward. But the Cavaliers continue to remain confident in their chances to outbid any other team.
Cleveland reportedly is willing to offer No. 1 pick Andrew Wiggins, 2013 No. 1 pick Anthony Bennett and a future first-round pick for Love.
The Cavaliers continued to juggle the finances Tuesday when they sent the guaranteed contract of guard Carrick Felix, a future second-round pick and cash to the Jazz for guard John Lucas III and forwards Erik Murphy and Malcolm Thomas. The trade gives the Cavs more flexibility and trade assets to make a future move that could be related to acquiring Love. The combined salaries of Lucas, Thomas and Murphy total more than $3 million.
A trade for Love may have to wait, however.
The Associated Press reported Tuesday that Wiggins will sign his rookie contract with the Cavs, preventing any potential trade involving the team’s top pick for 30 days.
Meanwhile, LeBron James had cupcakes delivered to his neighbors to apologize for the traffic jams caused by his return.
“Dear Friend,” read a card that came with the cupcakes. “We know things have been hectic in our neighborhood these past few weeks and we are sorry for the chaos. We are so thankful to live in this wonderful community and we are so blessed to have understanding neighbors like you.”
