View Full Version : Rockets explore trade for Kevin Love

• Kevin Love’s breakout double-double (23 points and 24 rebounds Tuesday night against the Lakers) only underscored the bizarre dispute between the 22-year-old and coach Kurt Rambis over his minutes. Love has been walking a fine line between publicly grumbling and saying the right things of late, and other teams have taken note. One team that would be an ideal fit for Love, Houston, has explored the possibility to the point of presenting trade scenarios to the Wolves. Coach Rick Adelman lives in Love’s hometown, Lake Oswego, Ore. Adelman's son, Patrick, was a teammate of Love’s in high school. Those overtures, sources say, have been met with an icy response. Another team to keep an eye on with regard to Love is the Trail Blazers. No stranger to frontcourt injuries, Portland doesn’t want to get caught shorthanded again.

Not sure why Houston would want to trade for love when they just signed Scola to his deal, and have Jordan Hill who they traded for last year. Of course they would be trading Scola to let Love start...

We need a center not another PF when already have Scola, who albeit is just as good or barely better than Love, but ill listen for Noah. :rolleyes:

I think it's because you have the Heat, Lakers, Magic & Boston as really the only teams probably winning the title. If you want to compete and give your fans a reason to at least show up in the reg season, you gotta at least appear you're going to compete or trying to compete against those teams.

I also think with the new CBA next summer, teams are trying to put themselves in the best position financially. Add into that the fact that some guys who signed during th summer can't be traded until 15-Dec, you throw out names here and there, all the while on background so you can plausibly deny "making a call" but it's not lying if you "take" the call. You get some of the rough edges to a possible deal, and then work on the details as you get closer to 15-Dec.

Plus, if JA Adande says he heard from sources that the Lakers might trade Lamar to team X, if your team Y WTF do you have to lose to call and see if you can get in on that deal? Or another teams floats something to pressure a team they are currently talking to, to do something.

This stuff happens all the time, but the fact you've got really 4 alpha dogs and a new CBA coming next summer, teams need to make themselve better cap wise for sure and also keep their fan base happy.

well, the Wolves are loaded with picks and cap room, so picks and expirings don't make sense. Oden is not worth the risk currently, and Aldridge and Batum would be too much to ask, but them seperately is not enough.
The Rox have Scola, but the Wolves are in development. Scola will be an old man by the time the Wolves are competitive. And the Rox have nobody else to fill the PF void that will be left behind.

Pure rumors really

kevin love going to be traded haha yeah right. there's a better chance that Minny drafts another PG before they trade Love

rockets would have to give up alot, I dont see this going down, Scola's playing well, they prolly looking to trade away Yao Ming, Since he cant stay healthy

Only thing that makes sense is Yao for the money factor if you're Minny, but it ain't happening unless Houston feels that they are done with him.

Bynum for Love.

NTY. As good of a rebounder Love is, Bynum will crush him wif 1 leg on the offensive end. Love can't play C like Bynum. Bynum for Gasol + picks or mike conley =P

I love all the PG jokes.

If you look at the Wolves roster, you would see that we only have Telfair that's healthy at the moment...

lol, you dont know crap when it comes to David Kahn. Just cuz when he talks to the media and he says stupid stuff doesnt mean he is a bad gm, by the look of the twolves now from what he started with...im pretty damn happy with Kahn. 2 2nd rounds for Beasley is pretty stupid....

actually 2, we got Mo Ager too, but yes, we had one draft where we drafted Flynn, Rubio, and Lawson and than dealt Lawson and than we got millions of jokes about us. So bad to have nice depth at PG these days...?

again though, Minnesota is in the early stages of developing a young team. They have TONS of cap room, so expirings aren't of interest. Yao or Scola would just be too old when the Wolves became competitive, and Love is way better than Hill or any other big player the Rox can give them.
As for Portland, there just isn't a direct match player/money wise
