According to AP Writer Jon Krawczynski, the Golden State Warriors have restarted trade talks with the Minnesota Timberwolves in regards to prized Timberwolves forward Kevin Love:
The Minnesota Timberwolves and Golden State Warriors have reopened trade talks for All-Star forward Kevin Love, a person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press on Tuesday. Timberwolves president and coach Flip Saunders was seen talking to Warriors GM Bob Myers at the arena on Sunday as the two sides look to bridge the gaps that caused discussions to stall. The Warriors have been reluctant to include shooting guard Klay Thompson in any package, which has been considered a deal-breaker for the Timberwolves.
Kevin Love could quite possibly be the missing link that boosts the Warriors over the hump in the west, but if Golden State wants to remain competitive they need to make sure they don’t give away too much of their young supporting cast to get Love alone.
