Cleveland, OH, United States (4E Sports) – The NBA can stop the Cleveland Cavaliers from acquiring Kevin Love if an extension deal is being offered to the all-star forward, without the trade agreement being official.
Reports are saying that the Cavs are already offering a $120 million extension deal to Love next summer.
This violates NBA stipulations and could be grounds for the league to prevent the all-star from joining the team since the trade deal is not yet approved.
The Cavs and the Minnesota Timberwolves should wait for 30 days for the deal to be official, since Andrew Wiggins signed with the team.
The 26-year-old is said to have been adamant about being a free agent next summer wherever he is playing.
If the league proves there are future arrangements made without the approval, both teams will be sanctioned.
Love played all six seasons of his career with the T-Wolves but failed to make it in to the playoffs.
Because of this, he expressed his desire to get traded and leave Minnesota instead of exploring free agency in 2015.
The three-time all-star lead his team averaging 26.1 points, 12.5 rebounds, and 4.4 assists last season.
