Kevin Love trade: Cavs confident, Klay Thompson still the x-factor

148

Minnesota is also reportedly seeking non-guaranteed contracts from Cleveland that would offer the Wolves cap relief... There's also the chance Minnesota would prefer more established players than Wiggins and Bennett. If Golden State were to put Klay Thompson back on the table, it would likely make the Wolves think long and hard about accepting the deal. Chicago can also offer a package of veterans that would include Taj Gibson and Jimmy Butler...If Cleveland if offering Wiggins and Bennett, the package is likely too good for the Wolves to pass up.

From "Cavaliers 'confident' they'll land Kevin Love in trade involving Andrew Wiggins" via Ricky O'Donnell of SB Nation NBA.

And Woj has more on the story, which includes the Denver Nuggets jumping into the mix as a suitor for Love.

2014 NBA free agency rumors: Kent Bazemore searching for 'a chance to prove' himself

2

"It was an unfortunate situation for myself with Golden State, I did make the team, but they were so guard heavy... I was fortunate enough to go down to LA, where there were a lot of minutes out there on the floor and I was able to kind of show [what I can do]... My [sample] size is very small. I just need a chance to prove myself again, so minutes are definitely the first thing I’m after. Everything else is just basketball. You hear a lot of guys talking about the bad cities of the NBA and all of that, but a guy like me, I just want another opportunity to go out there and show that I can really be a great player in this league."

From Bazemore Weighs Free Agency Options via Alex Kennedy of Basketball Insiders.

The Golden State Warriors are among the teams pursuing free agent Kent Bazemore, but their already-crowded guard rotation makes it extremely unlikely that he'll return to the Bay.

In any event, the whole interview is great - it's really hard not to root for this guy.

Rumor: LeBron is part of Warriors' motivation to pursue Kevin Love?

643

...I think the Warriors are very motivated to get Kevin Love in part I think not just because he’s an upgrade over David Lee, but in part because I think that now that you can have a Steph Curry and you have a Kevin Love, I think they feel at that point that they could be credible suitors for LeBron James.

From ESPN’s Chad Ford: Warriors want Kevin Love so they can make ‘compelling case’ for LeBron James by Diamond Leung of the Bay Area News Group.

Now they're just toying with us...

Ford also suggests that it's Harrison Barnes - not Klay Thompson - holding up the deal at this point, as tweeted previously by Jerry Zgoda,

Luke Adam's Thoughts on GSW

Question: Is it time to panic as a Warrior fan or do you see hope in the future and to finish down the stretch?

Luke Adams: The ultra-competitive West is cause for some concern, but it's not panic time for the Warriors yet. They're really missing Andre Iguodala right now. If they're still playing poorly after he returns, maybe it's time to get worried, but I still have faith in Golden State.

Finally, the conversation turns to their favorite shooting drills. One in particular stands out: Shoot three-pointers from around the arc until you miss two in a row. "Almost every shot is a pressure shot," Thompson explains. Curry's high last year is impressive: 76. Indeed, when this became public knowledge last spring, there was much amazement among fans. It seemed otherworldly. Seventy-six NBA three-pointers without missing two in a row? And yet here we find a surprise. Asked his high, Thompson smiles. "I hit 122 last year," he says. "Right there on that far basket." He points to a nearby hoop. Seated next to him, Curry shakes his head in admiration. And then the best three-point shooter in the history of the NBA looks down at his feet. Says Curry, "I'm almost embarrassed by my number now." *SOURCE: Warriors coach Mark Jackson, last spring. Accuracy: hotly debated.

BLOGTABLE: SURPRISE TEAMS?

John Schuhmann, NBA.com: Golden State could be top three in the West if Andrew Bogut plays close to a full season. With a healthy Bogut and Andre Iguodala, they have the potential to improve several spots defensively (where they ranked 13th last season), and we know they’ll be potent offensively with Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and David Lee. Denver has obviously taken a step backward and it’s hard to believe in the Clippers until they show us that they can defend consistently, so there’s a real chance for the Warriors to have home-court advantage in a first round series next spring.
