Wednesday August 13th, 2014

Kevin Love and the Cleveland Cavaliers will play at the Minnesota Timberwolves on Jan. 31, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. The game would be Love's first return to Minnesota after being traded.

Love reportedly will be traded to the Cavaliers on Aug. 23, once 2014 No. 1 pick Andrew Wiggins is eligible to be traded. Love has reportedly agreed to sign a five-year, $120 million extension with the Cavaliers. 

The 25-year-old has spent his entire six-year NBA career in Minnesota.
