Reports: Warriors, Nuggets offer up big names in pursuit of Kevin Love
With the NBA Draft now less than one week away, and with the latest injury to presumed No. 1 pick Joel Embiid potentially throwing the top of draft boards into chaos, reports of potential big-name deals is heating up.
Kevin Love apparently has good reason to smile — he seems to be quite the popular guy right now.
And no name is hotter than Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love.
Love's presence in the trade rumor mill is nothing new — he has been the subject of trade speculation for years. But with Love eligible to opt out of his contract and become an unrestricted free agent after next season, and teams ramping up efforts to position themselves for the draft and for next season, Thursday brought with it a new wrinkle in the Love speculation.
