Chicago Bulls trade rumors about Kevin Love have really started to take shape. In fact, the most recent Chicago Bulls trade rumors actually suggest that an offer is in place to the Minnesota Timberwolves. According to a report from NBC Sports on Monday evening (June 23), the package would include players and picks in an effort to acquire the All-Star power forward.
The report states that the offer include Taj Gibson, Tony Snell, the No. 16, and the No. 19 pick of the 2014 NBA Draft. This appears to be a deal that has a very short shelf life, especially with the draft ready to take place on June 26. That leaves very little time for the Wolves to consider the package, but it would certainly help them to rebuild the roster in the short-term. Minnesota already possesses the No. 13 pick as well.
These latest Chicago Bulls trade rumors follow dozens of other teams being linked to the Timberwolves and their best asset. Teams like the Boston Celtics and Golden State Warriors have already made it well known that they are interested in acquiring Love as well, but a road-block between the Warriors and Wolves really opened the door for other teams to step through.
In the latest mock drafts posted on the main NBA site, there appears to be a lot of talent that teams drafting in the teens could acquire this year. That definitely makes it possible for Minnesota to select several players that could provide an impact to the team right away. On the other side of the potential deal, the Bulls would love to combine the talents of Love and Derrick Rose with possibly a third star player.
While none of the deals on the table will return a superstar player like Love to the Timberwolves, it appears that the Bulls may be willing to give up the most assets in order to get a deal done. Adding a player like Gibson could be a huge boost for the Wolves, in addition to anything they are able to get on draft day.
