Just as I was tweeting about how my newfound strength as a Cavs fan had me balking at the idea of trading Andrew Wiggins for anyone, Chris Broussard has sourced a report that the Cavaliers might feel strong today too.
Source: Cavs have told Wiggins he's not being traded. TWolves want Wiggins. Cavs will try 2 do it w/out losing Wiggins. Must find 3rd team

Of course, it hasn’t been the best day of reporting for Chris Broussard, but that doesn’t mean he is off his game here and now. Plus, it makes tons of sense. Assuming we’re talking about Kevin Love, the Cleveland Cavaliers are now talking from strength and the Timberwolves have very little leverage. They can move him now and get something or they can risk losing him to free agency as he walks away.
Given that fact and given that the Cavaliers are sitting on a lot of accumulated assets, it’s probably not a great time to just jump at the first couple of rings on the old telephone.
