Cleveland, OH, United States (4E Sports) – The Cleveland Cavaliers still tops the list among teams aiming to close a deal with forward Kevin Love.

According to ESPN, the Timberwolves are more interested in the Cavaliers’ trade-offers than any other deals on the table.

The deal will include No.1 picks Andrew Wiggins (2014) and Anthony Bennett (2013).

But the Cavs must wait for a month before trading Wiggins after he signed with the team.

Sources said that Wolves owner, Glen Taylor, prefers a deal headlined by Wiggins rather than Klay Thompson.

Since the rookie has the potential of being a franchise player while only having a starting contract.

The Golden State Warriors were likely to ontain Love earlier this year, until Klay Thompson was pulled off from the deal.

Meanwhile the Chicago Bulls renewed their interest in the all-star forward, after failed attempts to sign Carmelo Anthony.

The Bulls are putting Taj Gibson and Jimmy Butler on the table. But the team also needs to wait for a month to include either of two newly signed acquisitions.

This month, the Bulls signed rookie Doug McDermott and European stalwart Nikola Mirotic.

After the 30-day-period, either McDermott and Mirotic may be part of the Bulls’ trade-offer.

The Cavs-Wolves deal was close to being finalized according to Chris Broussard of ESPN.

But according to sources, the Wolves wants more than the Cavs’ standing offer as of now.
