Sorry, Cavs fans. I hope you didn’t your hopes up for Corey Brewer

As the Cavaliers and Timberwolves wait out the Andrew Wiggins clock and negotiate the details of a Kevin Love trade, rumors about the exact terms of the deal have emerged. The latest: Brewer – rather than Kevin Martin or J.J. Bareawould be included in the trade.

Rather than get the most valuable player in that trio, Cleveland will have to try another option.

Jon Krawczynski of the Associated Press:

Krawczynski, based in Minnesota, has been all over details of the Love trade. I’d take his word on this.

It also helps that logic dictates the Timberwolves – with leverage thanks to having Love – don’t want to dump a player with positive value like Brewer. Martin/Barea and Brewer sure aren’t mix-and-match pieces.

    So basically speculations will continue be made until Wiggins is available after 30 day mark. Well, in other news..

    Smart move by the Wolves.

    Bad news for C-Brew.

      Corey Brewer is a bust who still happens to have a job.

    Why would the Cavs give up Much of anything outside of Wiggins for Love? They are the only team bidding for him right now, why try to outbid yourself?

    Personally, I wouldn’t make a trade until the trade deadline for Love. Minny will be desperate, and it gives you almost 4 months to see how the team currently constructed runs.

    And I’m not even a Cavs fan

      They aren’t the only team bidding for Love. They are the team leading the bidding. The Dubs have a sub-standard offer (according to the Wolves) and the Bulls can’t outbid Wiggins offer. Doesn’t mean they aren’t trying.

    Not only was it a surprise to hear corey brewer’s name linked to Cleveland, it was a surprise to know that Jon Krawczynski (who??) broke this recent story.

      You never watched “The Office”?

    hopefully Wiggins becomes a star for Twolves. The NBA in its next CBA have to make it harder for players to leave. Love leaving the Wolves sets this franchise back even further. Its not fair to fans of small MKT teams. Cleveland is no longer a “small MKT team”. Lebron’s presence changes that whole dynamic.

      They have to make it harder for players to leave? LOLOL! This isn’t the 1970’s. Players aren’t property of the franchises anymore. What player would accept being forced to play for a team he didn’t want to play for? Besides, franchises that are too inept to build around superstar players shouldn’t be rewarded by being able to suck up a player’s prime years like a black hole.

    @csbanter Think to the summer of 2010. Lebrons a free agent. The Cavs thought he was staying. He was a home town kid. They could offer him the most money. Guys always took the money. He said nothing giving them no indication. Then on national tv he told them he was gone. The Cavs were screwed. 4 very long years followed. The Wolves are very lucky Love told them he planned to leave. Now they’ll have Andrew Wiggins.

      The Cavs got 3 #1 picks in that time that Lebron left, would the league rig that for the Wolves, no way

  7. seasickcecil - Aug 2, 2014 at 12:34 AM

    Heres how it is Flip. You are so very fortunate that Lebron moved to Cleveland and wants to play with Kevin Love. If Wiggins and Bennett aren’t good enough for you fine. You can contact the Bulls and see if their offer of Bucky McNuggets and the Euro trash is still on the table. Enjoy mediocrity now and forever.
