While the NBA trade deadline has since expired and rosters are seemingly set for the remainder of the 2021 season, you better believe this upcoming offseason will be just as entertaining as the NBA trade deadline was. Two teams who could be interested in making a trade together could be the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Minnesota Timberwolves.
The Cleveland Cavaliers have been rebuilding for a few years now and have finally come close to putting together a roster that could make the playoffs. The Minnesota Timberwolves, on the other hand, are entering their name into the mix to land the number one overall pick in the NBA Draft.
A trade between these two teams could catch a lot of people off guard, but we’ve seen many great trades go down in the league’s history between two sub-par squads. A deal between these two teams could help each side build for the future, while also investing in their current roster as well.
Cavaliers power forward Kevin Love was mentioned in NBA trade rumors to be dealt at the NBA trade deadline this year, but a deal never came to fruition for the 13 year veteran. Love could instead be dealt this offseason and a reunion with the Timberwolves could be an ideal landing spot.
Many have forgotten about the impact that Love can provide for a team since he has struggled to stay healthy in recent years and has a very substantial contract. A team that is seeking a shooting threat that can bully mismatches in the post and on the glass should be calling the Cavaliers about him. Could that team be the Timberwolves?
Let’s take a look at an NBA offseason trade scenario centered around Kevin Love featuring the Cleveland Cavaliers and Minnesota Timberwolves.
