The Minnesota Timberwolves and Golden States Warriors are talking about Love again.
Kevin Love, that is.
The All-Star forward has been the subject of trade rumors involving the Warriors since before the NBA draft, and after initially backing out, the Warriors are interested again, the Associated Press reports.
The Warriors were not including Klay Thompson in previous trade negotiations with the Wolves.
It’s unclear whether the Warriors stance on Thompson has changed in the new talks, but in previous negotiations they have talked about sending David Lee, Harrison Barnes and draft picks in exchange for Love.
The Timberwolves have also talked to the Cleveland Cavaliers in recent days about sending Love to play alongside LeBron James. The Cavaliers, however, have refused to include No. 1 overall pick Andrew Wiggins in any offer.
Love becomes an unrestricted free agent after next season.
