The Cleveland Cavaliers are pursuing a trade for Minnesota Timberwolves power forward Kevin Love. Yahoo Sports reports that the trade is contingent upon Cleveland landing free agent forward LeBron James.

In the trade, Minnesota would ask for Andrew Wiggins, the No. 1 pick in the 2014 draft, according to the report.

While the Cavaliers reportedly have not been assured that James will sign with them, the team on Wednesday dealt point guard Jarrett Jack in an apparent attempt to clear cap space in order to acquire the four-time MVP.

However, Brian Windhorst of ESPN.com later reported that the Cavaliers would have made a "version" of the trade regardless of James' intentions.

Multiple teams, including the Boston Celtics and Golden State Warriors, have reportedly shown interest in trading for Love. The three-time All-Star, who averaged 26.1 points and 12.5 rebounds a game last season, can become an unrestricted free agent in 2015 by opting out of the final year of his contract.
