Minnesota Timberwolves small forward Corey Brewer will not be sent to the Cleveland Cavaliers in any potential trade packages involving star power forward Kevin Love, according to the Associated Press.
The News-Herald reported Thursday that a potential deal could involve Cleveland sending Andrew Wiggins and Anthony Bennett, the No. 1 picks in the last two drafts, plus a 2018 first-round pick to Minnesota for Love and "possibly" Brewer.
Brewer, 28, averaged 12.3 points and 2.6 rebounds in 81 games for the Timberwolves last season.
As of Wednesday, the Cavaliers were the only team engaged in trade talks with Minnesota for Love, according to ESPN.com.
Love, 25, is said to be intent on leaving Minnesota if the team does not trade him before the end of next season, when he can opt out of the final year of his contract to become an unrestricted free agent.
The three-time All-Star averaged 26.1 points and 12.5 rebounds a game last season.
