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.

    Thinks? Key word is thinks and of course assumes.

    Another terrible article. How do you know the Warriors don’t know how to be active at the trade deadline? You gave zero information to back this up. How do you know Iguodala has an issue with Barnes? They can play different positions and be on the court at the same time and have done so with Iggy at the 2 and Barnes at the 3. They’ve played Barnes at the 4 as well. Is there word that there is a chemistry issue between them?

    Why would a trade of Barnes for Love work for the Wolves? Another player or two must be included, and you don’t even mention who else could be traded. Barnes on a rookie deal, Love making over 15 mil next year. A bench player for an MVP candidate?

    You get an F for effort. I keep reading this and wondering where the rest of the article is.

    Lee, Thompson and Green for Love may be a deal that causes the Wolves to bite, even adding a player like Brewer.

    I would rather have them trade Igoudala instead of barnes. Iggy isnt having a good season at all and barnes can still improve as to where iggy is towards the end of his career

    Barnes for Love? that’s stupid because Barnes is still in a rookie contract which would make Golden state $10+ mil over the salary cap the only logical trade (which won’t happen) is David lee, the difference between their contracts is about $3 mil, do you not know how trades go? this isn’t 2k14 where you can trade a mediocre player for an all star.
