The Golden State Warriors are one of the teams in the NBA that want o be active at the deadline but don’t know how to go about doing so. While they don’t want to trade Harrison Barnes, it appears that they may end up having to in order to keep Andre Iguodala happy.
One player that the Warriors are reportedly enamored with is Minnesota Timberwolves star Kevin Love. Really, everyone in the NBA, including the Wolves, are enamored with Love but there are a few teams extending offers Minnesota’s way to get Love.
Golden State hasn’t extended an offer, but Chad Ford from ESPN.com thinks that the Warriors could, as they badly desire acquiring Love.
Minnesota may not be able to bring Love back, so a trade that lands them Harrison Barnes and other considerations may be something that appeals to them. They won’t get a star back if they lose Love in free agency, rather the franchise will likely be set back again.
Getting Barnes for Love isn’t a proposed deal, but we’re getting to that point in the deadline season where this type of deal is possible.
