Wow that didn't take long for the trade suggestions. He is going nowhere and by the end of the season when whe are in the second round of the playoffs this will be a joke.
Gallinari, Faried, and Mozgov is a superb package and I like it a lot but when your talking about trading a star player like Love I will have to say no to the trade. Love is a top 10 player in the NBA right now and he is the best power foward in the game. Gallinari, Faried, and Mozgov without a doubt will add a lot of depth into the T-Wolves roster for sure. But as of right now it's not a good idea to trade Love.
Pairing Mozgov with Sexy and AK. Where's Sasha Kahn when you need him??
What concerns me is if 2 good contracts down the line are better than a huge contract to a "star" player.
What else does that top 10 player provide? Referee calls? Popularity?
I like almost any trade that gets us Derrick Favors. I have a feeling he will explode next year. And if I had to trade Love, so far, the Denver package is the best by far - either that or Utah would be nice trade partners.
PSD Grammar Lesson #1:
a) their - stands for "belonging to them"
b) there - means "over there" as in location
c) they're - short for "they are"
Also those 2 guys to me seem like the perfect pairing to play with Rubio, Faried and Gallo play the game the right way, they are not just about stats.
I almost like MIN better with that trade, the defense improves, and you can then trade Dwil and add another good piece. Dwil for Affalo?
I think that team is significantly better than DEN's team last year and a 50 win team with growth potential. Legit 10-11 deep.

Kind of the same with Smith from the Hawks. He would be going to a winning team, we would be taking someone who can replace him, but Love and Horford have been fighting like little girls when we have played.
And now that I remember it, last time we played Denver, Love got into a fight with Koufos (who for some reason unknown to me -despite the fact he is Greek-) Karl envisions as the starting C of that team.
^yup, I heard that too.
I understand everyone is peeved at Love, and he hasn't returned to form yet, but no way in hell we move him over the next 2 years. That would insane.
If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.
I wouldn't trade Love, but I like to think about his trade.
I would love to get Anthony Davis. We're pretty deep in all positions, so we are looking to get a PF in return. Millsap/Favors/Faried etc are nice but Davis can be way better than all of them in a year or two.
Or get a SG, but I don't like the possible options(Reddick)
As far as the Denver deal, I'm not a fan. Don't get me wrong, I do like Gallo (have since '08) and Faried is a nice player, but you have nowhere to go after that trade. If you get young talent that is poised to break out (you think) or a star wing, the team has upward mobility.
^That's also why I love draft talk and young players. The investment is relatively cheap for what you get when a prospect turns out. The issue is taking the right risks and picking the right guys i.e. Rondo over Gerald Green.
