The Knicks tried to get in on Kevin Love.
With the Minnesota Timberwolves looking to deal their disgruntled star the Knicks and president Phil Jackson offered Tim Hardaway Jr., Iman Shumpert and Amar’e Stoudemire (for contract matching purposes) in exchange for Love (Herring, July 25th).
It was a longshot chance to begin with, and the Timberwolves shot it down. Minnesota has had extensive talks with Golden State, Chicago and Cleveland. The Cavaliers are reportedly putting No. 1 pick Andrew Wiggins on the table in exchange for Love. The Cavaliers signed Wiggins on Thursday and can’t trade him for 30 days.
