The NBA Draft is right around the corner and with it is going to come plenty of trade rumors about who is going to get swapped for what draft picks and which stars will be trading teams. The biggest trade talker at the moment seems to be Kevin Love and where he will end up, and it’s sounding like the Golden State Warriors are making a strong push.
According to Tim Kawakami from the San Jose Mercury News, the Dubs are not interested in trading Klay Thompson, which seems to nix any and all deals we’ve been hearing that involve him in any way.
The Warriors are making it clear to everyone in the league, including Minnesota president Flip Saunders, that they very much do not want to part with Klay Thompson, the key part of any Minnesota demand.
This seems to throw a kink into the trade talks that have supposedly been going on between the Wolves and Warriors but also the Lakers as well. The Minnesota Timberwolves are still unsure of whether they truly want to move Love and not having Thompson as part of a deal sinks their chances significantly.
Only time will tell, but it’s looking like the gung-ho Warriors are getting cold feet and having second thoughts about offering up Thompson to land Love.
