Golden State Warriors not sure about trading Klay Thompson for Kevin Love

The Minnesota Timberwolves and Golden State Warriors are apparently deep in trade talks that involve finally moving Kevin Love to a new team, but there sees to be some slowing of momentum that we saw build so rapidly on Thursday afternoon.

Golden State is reportedly read to finally offer Klay Thompson in a deal for Love, but while the Wolves are now listening thanks to Thompson’s inclusion in the deal, there seems to be conflicting feelings within the Dubs front office about whether Thompson is a tradable asset.

According to ESPN.com’s Marc Stein, the Warriors seem to be internally re-thinking their eagerness to include Thompson in a trade for Kevin Love but that doesn’t mean the deal is going to die.

Sources told ESPN.com that the Warriors, while they covet Love greatly, have been weighing internally whether they’re prepared to give up two such assets in addition to former All-Star forward David Lee for Love and Wolves swingman Kevin Martin.

Minnesota has long coveted Thompson and if he’s not included in a trade offer then the Warriors chance go back down below that of the Bulls, Celtics and others. Thompson is an x-factor no other team has and the Dubs reluctance and now internal conflict about including him in a deal may be their finals stages of getting over him before they finally offer him up officially.

    Only trade Klay for Lebron and no one else!!!!!!!!! The kid plays good offense and getting really good on defense and the warriors will screw up this team and probably lose Curry down the road if they trade him for Love….Don’t do it!!!!!!!!!!
