The NBA Draft is just around the corner and teams are starting to look at not just who they can draft this year but also who they can trade for and what assets they have that can land them superstars right now.
Kevin Love and LeBron James are two giant superstars in two drastically different scenarios, but one team is trying acquire them both.
According to ESPN.com’s Chad Ford, who went on ESPN LA 710 AM to discuss upcoming trades we might expect to see, the Warriors are looking to not only acquire Kevin Love from the Timberwolves but also somehow sign LeBron James as well.
“At the end of the day, I don’t think there’s a better Kevin Love deal for the Wolves than what the Warriors can offer, and I think the Warriors are very motivated to get Kevin Love in part I think not just because he’s an upgrade over David Lee, but in part because I think that now that you can have a Steph Curry and you have a Kevin Love, I think they feel at that point that they could be credible suitors for LeBron James,” Ford said.
Golden State is clearly going all-in here and they may be able to pull this one off if everything goes right. The Wolves won’t get ab better deal than Harrison Barnes, David Lee and Klay Thompson and shedding that salary could lead to there being room for the Dubs to make a run at LeBron James.
It’s a lot easier said than done, but the Warriors are clearly getting bold and creative in their trade strategy and they might end up pulling off a shocker.
