It’s all but certain that Minnesota Timberwolves power forward Kevin Love will be traded to the Cavaliers just as soon as the rookie contract signed by Andrew Wiggins allows the deal to go through.

But some recently reported details could possibly place the entire thing in jeopardy if it can be proven that an illegal agreement -- in terms of the league’s collective bargaining agreement -- is already in place.

Both teams have been careful not to say too much, lest the league come down on them with severe consequences for working outside of the rules.

But if Love has in fact implicitly agreed to re-sign in Cleveland as has been reported, that may be an issue that the league office has no choice but to address.
