BULLS INTENSIFY KEVIN LOVE TRADE TALK
Kevin Love is the man of the moment. Central Division rivals Cleveland Cavaliers and Chicago Bulls are now locked into a hot pursuit of the former NBA rebound king. The Chicago Bulls are now willing to include Taj Gibson, the 10th overall pick Doug McDermott and even their wild card asset Nikola Mirotic in the package to Minnesota. The Bulls believe that if the Cavaliers could parade a Kevin Love and LeBron James combo, they are the clear favorites to take the East. "The Chicago Bulls have offered a package of Taj Gibson and rookies Doug McDermott and Nikola Mirotic to the Minnesota Timberwolves for All-Star forward Kevin Love, a league source told SheridanHoops.com on Wednesday. The package is extremely intriguing to the Timberwolves, but there is a catch; it cannot be completed for another 29 days because McDermott and Mirotic signed their rookie contracts Tuesday. NBA rules prohibit rookies from being traded within the first 30 days of inking their rookie deals."
