NBA News: Kevin Love Trade Talks With Golden State Warriors Are ‘Dead’

Share on FacebookTweet about this on Twitter

Over the past few days, rumors have been circulating that star forward Kevin Love could be headed to the Golden State Warriors in a three-team deal. The blockbuster trade appeared imminent, but now the deal is dead, according to Bleacher Report’s Ric Bucher:

With so much interest in Love’s services, trade talks will almost start up once again with either the Warriors possibly retooling their offer or other teams getting involved. Love’s immediate future appears to be with another team, but it still remains to be seen where he might land.

The Los Angeles Lakers were involved in the three-team deal with Klay Thompson said to be headed to Los Angeles. The Lakers would’ve sent their seventh pick in the upcoming draft to the Minnesota Timberwolves as a part of the deal, but it seems as though Los Angeles will hold on to the pick unless things change in the days leading up to the draft on Thursday.

It may only be a matter of time before Love is sent elsewhere, but as of right now, the three-time All-Star will have to wait a little longer before he’s playing for another team.

As for the Lakers, the Warriors and Timberwolves aren’t the only teams that the storied franchise has been rumored to be in trade talks with. The Philadelphia 76ers have also been a team mentioned as a potential trade partner with Steve Nash and the seventh pick possibly headed to Philadelphia in exchange for Michael Carter-Williams and Thaddeus Young.

Although it has been said that the Lakers are leaning toward keeping their lottery pick, a trade seems like a very realistic possibility for Los Angeles.

    All because they didn’t want to trade Klay Thompson. Did they expect to just take the T-Wolves franchise player for nothing?

    • benbrung

      Not true. What was reported locally is that the W’s objected to Thompson AND Kevin Martin BOTH being included. When they first started rebuilding, pairing Curry with a defender who had the size and quickness to cover opposing point guards was priority one. If Thompson leaves that becomes priority one again but with the league’s 4th ranked defense and the need to be better this year in the wake of firing a popular coach, the stakes are even higher this time around. The team is willing to play hardball because the risk of trying to replace that missing piece with 0 draft picks & their cap space being swallowed by Martin’s obscenely criminal contract (seriously, who gave him that?) is nearly as great as not getting Love now. Especially since they are on Love’s short-list of destinations in free agency. It’s Kevin Martin who is killing the deal at least as much as Thompson. I have no doubt a deal would work as long as Thompson & Martin end up on the same team.

      You are an idiot… First of all Warriors offered All start David Lee and Barnes which is a good offer for the twolves who have NO SAY in keeping LOVE after this year.. Meaning TWOLVES get JACK SHIITE if they cant make a trade… THe truth is TWOLVES actually have VERY LITTLE say in trades because MOST if not ALL teams are unwilling to give up much if KLOVE does not sign extension pass the one year rental…
      For example, if CAVS offers everything they had but KLOVE refuses to sign extension why would CAVs even offer the farm for one year rental? Trades leverage is soley in hands of warriors bulls and KLOVE…PERIOD>

      • TheTruthKills

        The Wolves will make a deal that’s best for their team. Lee and Barnes (who looks like a bust so far) isn’t enough. The Wolves have the asset, which means they control the market. They’ll get the trade they’re looking for eventually. If you don’t understand that then go look in the mirror. You’ll find the real idiot there.

        • Rob L

          Lee is a 2 time allstar and barnes had off season because he played with NBA worse bench players for most of the season.. Barnes played with Bench players who didnt know how to spread the floor or willing to pass. Watch Barnes when he plays with the starters..
          The Wolves have the asset for ONE year and than they get jack shit, meaning the wolves have to make a trade AND can only get GOOD return IF KLOVE is willing to sign extension with the team giving up the GOOD trade package. So guess what, your the moron who doesnt know shit about basketball or trades…

          • TheTruthKills

            A former all-star and a bust is not a good trade. Maybe it is in your 2k fueled fantasy world, but in reality it isn’t. And last time I checked there are a lot of deals on the table for the Wolves to look at. Guess who gets their pick of the litter? Guess who’s gonna get starting caliber players and draft picks to rebuild with? There are teams out there willing to rent Love because they know a deep playoff run will be a good bargaining chip in future negotiations. And there’s your lesson for today. We’re done here. Don’t bother embarrassing yourself further with another half assed reply. Have a good one.

  • iEATcelticBabies

    WE WANT LOVE !!!

    • comrade24

      maybe they’ll hold on to Love until the trade deadline and we’ll have assets by then and can trade for him then

    • BULL

      I say be patient and wait. . .

      • Patrick Jackson

        I say say it again

    • Badazztj12

      Well I don’t want love. The dude doesn’t play defense

      • iEATcelticBabies

        the only guy’s to play defense in the history of the NBA played in the 80′s…. did you just awake from a cryo sleep?

        • Badazztj12

          You must haven’t heard defense wins championships. When was the last time a totally offensive team won the championship in any sport? Spurs beat Miami with team defense. The Seahawks best the Broncos with there defense which was rank in the top 3 next to the Broncos top 1st offensive. You must don’t watch the playoffs. There aren’t those 120-110 games like the regular season. Why you think a team like Warriors keep getting put out the playoffs. Offensive Is just nothing but hype

          • iEATcelticBabies

            you have too play both…offense , defense, defense, offense, comes down to who wants it more…if anything, it was the spurs offense that won the championship…this league has slowly moved to a more offensive league to make it more palatable…

          • Badazztj12

            So you think holding Miami under 100pts during the whole series is not playing defense? I want you to name a team in history that just wins with offense. You can see why love hasn’t even taken his team to even to one playoff appearance with at least some talent on the team

          • iEATcelticBabies

            i agree, that was fantastic, but it’s team D, not individual D…ofcourse it doesnt hurt to have a beast like World peace.. but how many players in the league can u say are real defensive beasts… not many..

          • Badazztj12

            o I see what you think am talking about. You think I just want a defensive specialist but not I want someone who can come in and put our guys in right positions to play D. We didn’t have any communication on the court last year on D. That’s why it sucks so bad. Spurs play great D because they call out for each other and get each other in there spots

          • iEATcelticBabies

            moreover, these guys are the PROS, everyone in the league can play defense, they just have to want it… look at kobe in game 7 vs the smelltics…

          • Badazztj12

            There are guys who are decent, who want to play defense, or that give a shit about defense to save energy for offensive. That is what Kobe does if you haven’t known that he don’t have the young legs like these younger guys that don’t even want to be touch

  • Lakers Rebuilding

    Doesn’t surprise me one bit both teams were asking for a lot and now it doesn’t even seem that k love is going to be dealt before next years trade deadline .Which means now the lakers got a legit shot to trade for love or better yet the wolves can just hang on to love till next offseason then the lakers can come swoop in and sign him. This is a win win situation for the lakers

  • Jim213

    Per Sean Deveney: Lakers aren’t too serious in considering a rumored trade involving the No. 7 pick and Michael Carter-Williams. Bulls may move up for Kings’ No. 8 pick, giving up their two first rounders.

  • Jim213

    David Aldridge (TNT), Lakers will make a play for Kyle Lowry this summer.

    Very doubtful given he’d likely command a double digit salary.

    • LakersHeatBeef

      Seriously wow what are your thoughts on this?I am shocked.No Smart?

      • Jim213

        IMO, the effects of giving up too much for mediocre players given the Lakers have no assets (draft picks/valued players) to wheel and deal a trade to lure someone like K Irving etc. FO might as well wait until 2015 to address the 1 position for the long term.

        Too much pay to dish out for someone like Irving who’d likely end up being over paid given the demand/need. I’d go after Patty Mills and Isaiah Thomas (consistent pg for the regular season per stats). At least FO would end up acquiring assets given if things didn’t pan out they’d be trade able to aside of being young players.

        • LakersHeatBeef

          Reasonable strategy is to go young and cheap for PG.Their is no way in hell the Lakers should pay Lowry huge money when Marcus Smart,Elfrid Payton,Zach Lavine and Patty Mills,Darren Collinson are much cheaper options than Kyle Lowry i personally would just select Marcus Smart and call it a great draft day and walk away smiling.

    • LakersHeatBeef

      $13-$15 million dollars is the price in the media for Kyle.I say draft Marcus Smart much better potential and much much much cheaper contract.

    Lakers Join Raptors As Suitors For Kyle Lowry

    Jun 23, 2014 3:54 PM EDT

    The Toronto Raptors have a decent shot to re-sign Kyle Lowry, but other suitors are expected.

    The Los Angeles Lakers are at the top of the list of potential suitors.

    Lowry averaged 17.9 points and 7.4 assists for the Raptors this past season and has stated he hopes to return.

    Via David Aldridge

    • BULL

      he better not be playing with our emotions.. if so, that will make it easier on the draft.. we can go for shooter like Dmount, or just pure athleticism like Levine.. what am I saying.. if Scott coach and Gordon available.. its a wrap;..

  • Jason Decker

    I don’t see this actually happening, but possibly for salary cap relief the Lakers could trade for Love and Kevin Martin for the 7th pick. That would give the T-Wolves a solid first round pick and salary cap relief from Martin’s Contract, which is 4 years. That is an option if think think someone at seven could be a franchise player. Otherwise they will most likely get offers for other late round picks or take Boston’s deal. I think Love will actually end up on Boston or Chicago to tell you the truth.

  • BULL

    Lakers and us fans need to just be patient and wait for K.Lov next year is available. Am I the only one that wants to give Ryan Kelly another shot? he will be stronger and better this year than last, and he’s a true 6’11 with shooting range.. Aaron G, Randall and Vonleh are all under 6 10 and besides Vonleh, the others can not help spread the floor.. I say we keep the 7th pick and take the best available pick or see if Phili is serious and make the MCW and Young deal happen.. if B. Scott is hired as coach and A. Gordon is available, we all know he will be picked.. Scott already made it clear he loves Gordon and want him on the team.. we all will see thursday

    • iEATcelticBabies

      Nope…R-kelly (no pun ) will be great soon enuff.. im with you comrade

      How do we get Payton and Embiid with one draft pick?

      • Kb24

        Swap marshall for payton

  • Joseph Apohen

    I never listen to this Bucher. He is the same person who said Kobe will never play for the Lakers again and that he was headed to Chicago. This happened when Kobe was threatening to leave the franchise. This man is full of it.
