NBA Rumors: Warriors and Bulls ‘intrigue’ Kevin Love


This past week, Kevin Love let the Minnesota Timberwolves know that he does intend to become a free agent after next season. While bad news for the T-Wolves organization, it was actually a classy move by Love to let the team know this far in advance what his plans are rather than to string them along.

With that, the trade rumors will swirl around Love even more so than they have already, and according to a report from ESPN, the Golden State Warriors and Chicago Bulls are two destinations that personally intrigue Love the most.

Sources told ESPN.com that the Golden State Warriors and Chicago Bulls are among the potential trade destinations that intrigue Love.

Love has stopped demanding a trade as he was before, but with the position that the team has been put in by knowing that Love will more than likely not be sticking around, they have no choice now but to field all of the best offers they could for their star prior to next season.

As for the two destinations mentioned above, of course Love is going to want to land with a championship contender, and these are two teams on the cusp of getting over the hump. Both the Warriors and Bulls are perennial playoff participants and adding in the point production Love brings to the table would improve both teams drastically.

    If the Warriors could pull off a Love for Lee/Barnes trade, they would be scary. Would actually be making the best out of a bad situation for Minnesota as well. Lee is a poor man’s Love and Barnes is going to be a great player. He’s just stuck behind Iguodala and hasn’t been able to develop. I think that’s a definite win for Golden State and about the best the Wolves can hope for, overall.
