Report: Wolves, Warriors Kevin Love deal 'dead'
by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com

What seemed like a deal inching toward completion just a week ago is now considered "dead." According to Bleacher Report, talks between the Timberwolves and Warriors have ceased, making a deal involving Kevin Love "unlikely" to occur before the draft. 

Reports last week revolved around a possible Klay Thompson for Love swap that could include future draft picks or additional pieces, but apparently neither side could agree on exact terms.

Warriors willing to deal Klay Thompson as part of possible Kevin Love trade
by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com

Golden State may have just moved one step closer to trading for Kevin Love, as ESPN reported Thursday that the team would be willing to part ways with Klay Thompson to sweeten a potential deal with the Timberwolves

The Warriors would likely swap David Lee and perhaps a future first round pick to acquire Love's services for the coming season. A potential deal will now come down to whether the Timberwolves prefer a player-heavy or pick-heavy offer.

No matter where he ends up, Love currently stands to become a free agent in the summer of 2015, further complicating potential trade scenarios.

Still nothing definitive in Kevin Love trade situation
by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com

While one report Wednesday suggested that the Timberwolves thought they wouldn't get a better offer than what the Celtics had put forth, another more recent report says that haul "isn't nearly the best" deal Minnesota has fielded for Kevin Love.

According to the Boston Globe, sources close to the situation say Boston's offer of first-round picks and young players doesn't peak the Timberwolves' interests. One source said the Nuggets and the Warriors have both made better offers for Love. The report also suggests that Minnesota is content picking 13th overall despite offers to move up.

Flip Saunders calls his own number, will coach 'Wolves
by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com

Timberwolves' president Flip Saunders confirmed to reporters Thursday that he will indeed be Minnesota's head coach for the 2014-'15 season, according to ESPN. 

Wednesday a report stated that Minnesota would try once more to talk Kevin Love into staying before ultimately deciding to trade him, but that trade talks wouldn't proceed until a new coach was found. So it shouldn't be too long before we know Love's fate and trade rumors begin to swirl. 

Saunders previously served as 'Wolves coach from 1995-2005. He led them to all eight playoff appearances in franchise history, including the Western Conference finals in 2004. Saunders most recently coached the Wizards in 2009.

Kevin Love's departure seems like a foregone conclusion
by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com

One day he's traipsing around Boston, chatting with Rajon Rondo and going to Red Sox games. The next day reports surface about his preferred destinations via trade. The writing is on the wall, and it reads: Kevin Love won't be a member of the Timberwolves for long.

Yahoo Sports reported Wednesday that the Timberwolves are discussing deals involving Love, but that the team wouldn't commit to any deal until a new head coach had been hired. The report went on to note that Minnesota will once again try to convince Love to buy in once they've hired a new coach, but that the All-Star forward's longing to leave has not budged as of now. 

Right now he's a top-five Fantasy pick, and he'll stay that way if he moves to Boston. But should the Celtics land other talented free agents or Love get traded to a talented team like the Warriors or Rockets, you might consider dropping Love to top-ten range. I just can't see Love improving on 25-plus points, 12-plus rebounds and 4-plus assists per game. Only seven guys in the history of the league have achieved that line for a season, and, of those seven, only Elgin Baylor and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar were able to do it in back-to-back seasons.
