They saw Cleveland was willing to give Wiggins and they don't just want to let Cleveland have him. Now the question is who does Minnesota want more, Wiggins or Klay? Personally, I'd take a package of Klay/Barnes/Lee over what would be Wiggins/Bennett/Thompson.

I rather see him end up in GS. Enough is enough with these players following bron around like big brother...

But seriously, I don't even like klove, but getting back klay Thompson for him, is a minimal haul for minny, especially if he's expecting max $.

4 years of wiggins on a rookie deal, or be forced to give Klay a max after next year.


Easy decision.

I'd take wiggins, Klay is no worth a max contract and he's overrated with above average defense and good 3PT. There are better SGs in the NBa than him.

This hardly ever happens. Most teams are left with nothing. But yeah wolves have done well so far.

I'll say this about Klay. Yeah he's going to demand a max, but the market might say otherwise. He'd have to have a monster season with the Wolves to get it

Why? Look at the parsons deal or the Hayward deal those both are pretty high in terms of per year. Lance even got like 11 or 12 per so between 11 and 15 per is what Klay will get if it's not max it would be damn close.. Do I agree no but that's the way the contract are going these days...

raiderposting
07-18-2014, 03:29 AM
If Klay has a similar season than last year he'll command a max. Just take wiggins and hope he develops into the hype and hope you can build a successful team around him. Get wiggins and tank to team him up with another top 3 pick next year. You'll have a nice core with dieng/wiggins/draft pick. Can even move pek for a PG. Klay and Lee will just set them back in the long run.

lincecum=future
07-18-2014, 03:30 AM
Klay is a no doubt mini max player after this offseason.

Method28
07-18-2014, 04:07 AM
If I'm GS I give up Klay due to a couple different reasons. 1) they are already probably maxed out as a team imo . 2) Klay would demand a max which would keep them in good not great purgatory.

If I'm Clev I balk at including Wiggins. His contract matched with his potential and defensive capability is far too important IMO.

If Wiggins is able to take the load off of LeBron somewhat on the defensive end and help preserve LeBron down the stretch that (along with keeping their assets to obtain another player) is more valuable than Love.

wtf, is love really THAT good!?!

That's a LOT to give up, even take barnes out of that deal and I'd still be a little bummed about losing klay. His game took MAJOR strides last year, I'd hate to lose him. I really haven't watched love much, so I don't know, but damn, he's really THAT good? like a top 3 pf?

Agree, GS is probably out of the picture in trade talks already, this is just special media drama on tweeter

There is no point of not taking wiggins over klay

why give up Wiggins for KLove? It makes no sense. KLove will be an unrestricted free agent, it doesn't matter if he is there or in Minnesota.

LoL, the best scenario is Klay Thompson for Love, next year Love is unrestricted, signs with the Lakers. Then Minnesota doesn't want to pay Klay Thompson the next year, and his numbers are a bit off, so Lakers get him too.

If Cavs give up Wiggins for a one year rental of KLove that just seems ridiculous. If I was Lebron I would be quick to hush up all this nonsense, say that you have faith in the young prospects on the Cavs and you wanna build something great. All this "dream team" scheme type stuff is tiresome.

LoL KLove could sprain his ankle and *poof* Lebron would be magically back in 2010 Cavs uniform and Stephen A. will be talking about how "Lebron can't do it all he has no help." What a laugh Lebron could've signed anywhere in the entire NBA.

I mean is FOUR overall #1s on your team good enough for you? If not then what can anybody say? LoL if they send Bennett too. Cavs could've drafted Julius Randle for pete's sake. If Wiggin's is just a throwaway then why did we have to listen to a year's worth of hype about this guy.

There's no way either team includes Klay or wiggins without Love agreeing to sign an extension first, especially Cleveland.

There's no way either team includes Klay or wiggins without Love agreeing to sign an extension first, especially Cleveland.

But under the terms of the new CBA, I don't think they can sign an extension during the season. And they are in salary cap territory so I don't think they can do a sign and trade.

It's inevitable that he goes to free agency as I understand it. And if not, then the only person we should be asking about if any of these deals are possible is Kevin Love.

Minnesota acts like it's holding all the cards, looks to me like they're holding nothing. They waited way too long on this. They might have to settle for Nick Young and a couple firsts from the Lakers.

Lol always finding a way to get all these players on the lakers in your posts.

Honestly at the end of the day the teams that don't give up the JJ Hicksons of the world always end up regretting it. I think when you have a chance to add a legit star, you do it. Those 7th 8th man spots can be filled with vets.

Delusion? Hope that Minnesota would be more desperate than they are/should be.

It's been pretty ridiculous that GS has held out so long. Even more ridiculous that their fans actually bought into it. I guess it's just bargaining, but it's been foolish from day 1.

Wonder how long this dance will continue. Every damn year we hear the same thing, and it hasn't happened once. Lakers fans surely deserve to be more confident in free agency than most, but until there's something there worth playing with these stars aren't gonna go there...even as prestigious as The Los Angeles Lakers are.



The Cavs wouldn't do this without the assurance that Love re-signs with them. I think that's clear.

Yeah, once a team traded little for a really good player. That doesn't mean it can happen here.

Memphis did it because they had 13 wins and were god awful. They wanted to shake things up, free up money and reload/rebuild. Their GM said bluntly that Kwame was the largest expiring contract they could find and ultimately that's why they pulled the trigger. I think it's VERY clear that Memphis isn't looking for a salary dump here. Also, they got 2 firsts, Crittenton (who people were high on at the time) and Gasol (admittedly wasn't a great asset at the time).

Minny isn't looking for what Memphis was. That's really all it boils down to.

I wish we'd just trade Klay for Love already. I was hesitant at first to give up Klay because our defense would be pretty significantly weakened, but Livingston should help pick up the slack. Curry and Love in GS long term would be enticing to other free agents. Much much more than Curry and Klay. Durant2016? Lol. Our bench would be pretty weak again this year but we'll be able to sign significant bench pieces in the future.

Spanklin
07-18-2014, 01:58 PM
Forgive my fellow Warrior fans. They are all comfortable with first round exits for the next 3-4 years, then 3-4 years of rebuilding. I guess I understand it after slogging through so many trash years in a row that all they want is a tiny bit of playoff ball, but I don't see any goal short of a championship as worth rooting for.

Anyway, that's the tl;dr version of why they won't give up Klay and Barnes for a superstar.

They have 2 choices. Pay Kevin Love the max or pay Klay Thompson the max next year. I'd rather pay Love the max and have a nasty pick n roll for the next few years. I agree with it attracting other free agents as well. I'm so sick of them toying with my emotions and I wish they would just do one thing or another already.

K.Love has done the Wolves a huge favor by agreeing to play for teams in smaller market. Had he done what D12 and Melo did by basically only agreeing to play for 1 ow 2 teams in the league he would have severely hurt there bargaining power. The Wolves will make out like bandits either way.

The Wolves want Wiggins. Don't be fooled. Klay at near max vs Wiggins for 8 years... Easy decision.

And honestly, if the Warriors have to choose Klay at a max deal or Love at a max deal - what's the holdup for the trade?

What is up with this obsession over Klay? Wolves value him over Wiggins?? Are u kidding me

Seriously... I mean Klay is a nice player now, but not at 13-15m which is what he'll likely command to stay in MIN.

I mean MIN would almost be better off taking a package from NY centered around THJR who is cost controlled until 2018 and whose game is similar. I mean Klay is the better defender, but I think MIN is vastly overrating him.

The Cavs need competition. The Wolves don't over rate Klay - they just want someone to play the bidding game against the Cavs.
