Kevin Love is a hot commodity on the trade market.
Denver missed the playoffs for the first time since 2003, which helped them draft Carmelo Anthony.
There’s no secret Denver is in rebuild mode, but they’re trying to speed up the process by landing Love. Under this trade scenario, Denver would send Kenneth Faried, Wilson Chandler and Arron Afflalo to Minnesota. The only problem is that Afflalo is still a member of the Orlando Magic.
Sources: in addition to Wilson Chandler and Kenneth Faried, Denver offering Minnesota a player they would acquire (Arron Afflalo) for Love.

If this trade were to go down, one must ask if Kevin Love would be willing to stay in Denver long-term? It doesn’t seem likely that he would.
