The Golden State Warriors are looking to make a major splash this summer, and if they can pull off this master-plan that they have out … oh boy.
Currently, the Warriors have no interest in expanding their deal that sends Klay Thompson and David Lee to the Minnesota Timberwolves for Kevin Love and Kevin Martin.
The Warriors have their eyes set on Love to get an ever bigger picture for their roster as they believe getting the star power forward can help in luring LeBron James to Golden State.
NBA reporter Chad Ford discussed this issue on ESPN radio:
“At the end of the day, I don’t think there’s a better Kevin Love deal for the Wolves than what the Warriors can offer, said Ford. “And 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,” Ford said.
“There are many suitors that are hoping to be credible suitors for LeBron James, but I think the Warriors can make a compelling case for him if they had Curry and Love. They’re perfect complements to LeBron James.”
The Warriors would have to find a way to get rid of Andre Iguodala and Andrew Bogut first before they can be able to sign LeBron, since they need cap space.
