Report: Cavs offer Wiggins to Timberwolves for Love
ESPN The Magazine reported that league sources have confirmed the offer.
The clubs have been in trade discussions since LeBron James announced that he would return to Cleveland last Friday. The Cavaliers and new coach David Blatt had stated that they would not deal the 19-year-old Wiggins.
But they are now reportedly in discussions with Wiggins' representatives about signing the rookie. If the Cavaliers sign Wiggins, they would have to wait 30 days before trading him.
Love has told the Timberwolves he will not re-sign with them upon becoming a free agent after next season. Sources said Love has said he would sign a long-term contract with Cleveland to play alongside James.
Noteworthy* The Los Angeles Lakers have acquired Carlos Boozer, 32, on amnesty waivers, according to a report.
Sources told ESPN.com that the Lakers acquired Boozer with a blind bid of $3.25 million, which means the Chicago Bulls must pay the remaining $13.6 million that Boozer is owed in 2014-15 on the final year of his current contract.
* Free-agent guard Eric Bledsoe has turned down a 4-year, $48 million offer from Phoenix, according to a report.
ESPN The Magazine reported that Bledsoe, who averaged 17.7 points and 5.5 assists with the Suns last season, wants a maximum 5-year, $80 million deal.
* Dallas has re-signed guard Devin Harris. The Mavericks didn't reveal contract terms but ESPN reported Harris, 31, got a $16.5 million, 4-year deal.
* The Washington Wizards officially signed veteran forward Paul Pierce.
Pierce, an unrestricted free agent who turns 37 in October, spent 15 seasons with the Boston Celtics before being traded to the Brooklyn Nets last season.
The 10-time All Star averaged a career-low 13.5 points last season.
