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

145

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.

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...

Warriors general manager Bob Myers won't comment on specific trade rumors. But while there is chatter regarding a possible deal for star Minnesota forward Kevin Love, he did speak to the chances of a big trade. "I think probably right now unlikely. It's the best I can do for you. But I will say this: If you asked me last year at this time would we be in a situation to grab an (Andre) Iguodala, I would have said the same thing. "Right now, I think it's unlikely. Right now, today."

We know they can get a deal done featuring Klay Thompson, but what kind of deal?

It’s unclear whether the conversations extend beyond their negotiations with the Timberwolves toward a Kevin Love deal, but it appears Warriors GM Bob Myers and company place a high value on acquiring a first-rounder to replace the one they traded to Utah last year.

Don't get me wrong, I'm just as excited as the next Warriors fan about the possibility of acquiring Kevin Love this summer. However, this article really depressed me. I've grown to really like Klay Thompson and, if he is traded, he definitely will be missed. He's become a big part of the team identity and culture as one of the two Splashbrothers and I would just feel bad letting him go. That being said, I would still 100% love to get Love in the rumored deal involving Klay.
