Sheridan reports a Bulls offer on the table in Kevin Love trade talks

Sheridan reports a Bulls offer on the table in Kevin Love trade talks

A report Wednesday morning from Chris Sheridan outlines a package the Chicago Bulls have offered in an attempt to trade for Wolves superstar Kevin Love:

Taj Gibson, Doug McDermott and Nikola Mirotic.

That deal could not be completed for another 29 days, because McDermott and Mirotic signed their rookie contracts Tuesday, and NBA rules prohibits trading rookies in the first 30 days of their contracts.

A similar waiting period would be required to deal with the Cavaliers if rookie Andrew Wiggins is involved.

The report, posted on SheridanHoops.com, said Golden State and Boston also remain in the running for Love.

Here's more from that report:

The source who spoke to SheridanHoops said he believed the Bulls offer was better in the minds of the Wolves than the Cavs' current offer of Wiggins, Anthony Bennett and a No. 1 pick.

But if Cleveland is willing to include a second future No. 1 pick (Cleveland owns the rights to Miami's first rounder as well as Memphis' in 2015), it might be enough to trump Chicago's offer.
