Kevin Love has supposedly been ticketed for Cleveland since LeBron James made his decision last week to return there.

According to the News-Herald of suburban Cleveland, a league source says the Cavaliers are now willing to include No. 1 overall pick Andrew Wiggins is a deal for Love.

More from Bob Finnan of the News-Herald:

A league source said on July 17 that the Cavs are now willing to trade the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 draft.

Wiggins, a 6-foot-8, 194-pounder, has played well at the Las Vegas Summer League, where he’s become a crowd favorite. The former Kansas star has averaged 13.7 points and 3.0 rebounds in the Cavs’ first three games. However, he’s shooting just 37.8 percent from the field.

Up until this point, it was assumed the Cavs wanted to hang onto Wiggins, largely because of comments made by Coach David Blatt.

However, a source said James wants the 6-10, 250-pound Love on the roster.

And, what James wants, he normally gets.
