Sorry, Cavs fans. I hope you didn’t your hopes up for Corey Brewer

As the Cavaliers and Timberwolves wait out the Andrew Wiggins clock and negotiate the details of a Kevin Love trade, rumors about the exact terms of the deal have emerged. The latest: Brewer – rather than Kevin Martin or J.J. Barea – would be included in the trade.

Rather than get the most valuable player in that trio, Cleveland will have to try another option.

Jon Krawczynski of the Associated Press:

Krawczynski, based in Minnesota, has been all over details of the Love trade. I’d take his word on this.

It also helps that logic dictates the Timberwolves – with leverage thanks to having Love – don’t want to dump a player with positive value like Brewer. Martin/Barea and Brewer sure aren’t mix-and-match pieces.
