In what is probably the biggest news in the Midwest aquarium community in recent memory, SEA LIFE, the aquarium based at Minnesota's Mall of America, traded its octopus' name to the Greater Cleveland Aquarium.

Indeed, with the official Kevin Love-Andrew Wiggins, et al. trade, SEA LIFE has sent the octopus moniker "K-Love" to Cleveland in return for a to-be-determined play on Andrew Wiggins' name. (The Cleveland octopus was named Ocho; SEA LIFE reports that it'll probably waive that name and come up with something more creative and Wigginsy.)

SEA LIFE Minnesota at Mall of America has felt the sea of change lately with one of their famous creatures, K-Love the octopus. As the trade breached this weekend, the Aquarium has decided that the name, K-Love, should follow his human counterpart in the trade to Cleveland. The memories Kevin Love has given the Timberwolves will stay in Minnesota, and the octopus will be staying at SEA LIFE Minnesota as well. The K-Love name, however, will be traded to the Greater Cleveland Aquarium to be used for their giant pacific octopus.
SEA LIFE reports that it's now considering "Sqwiggins, Iggy, or A-W" among its octopus name prospects.
