The Nuggets continue to be involved in the Kevin Love trade talks, though there is a growing sense that the Timberwolves' All-Star power forward will not be traded before the draft. Sports Illustrated

The Magic have also been trying to both move up and get another lottery pick. They've offered Nos. 4 and 12 and Afflalo to the Cavs and Bucks, but so far, no takers. They've also used Afflalo as bait to get a pick from the Kings at No. 8 and the Nuggets at 11, but so far, no deal. ESPN.com

It’s still unclear, according to league sources, if the Timberwolves have fully committed to trading Love, but if they are, Golden State and Chicago are considered front-runners, with Denver said to be in the mix. Boston Globe

The Grizzlies have exercised an option to keep their 2015 second-round pick and instead send an undisclosed amount of cash to the Nuggets as part of the terms of a trade that took place in 2008, reports Ronald Tillery of The Commercial Appeal (subscription required). The original deal was a three-team swap involving Memphis, New Orleans and Washington. The Memphis pick went to New Orleans, which sent it to the Clippers in the Chris Paul trade before the Clippers shipped it to the Nuggets in the JaVale McGee trade. Hoops Rumors

One source indicated Denver and Golden State have both made more intriguing offers, and there are other teams very much in the picture, as well. There have been conflicting reports on whether the Warriors would make Klay Thompson available, but the Wolves are said to be confident they can find a more than acceptable deal there. Boston Herald

The Bulls have been trying to move up in the draft to get an elite shooter. Their target has been Denver with an offer of the 16th and 19th pick for 11. If they get there, Gary Harris or Nik Stauskas will be the guy with them, likely leaning toward Stauskas. If they keep the pick, with Derrick Rose returning from his second ACL surgery and D.J. Augustin a free agent, the Bulls need a reliable point guard as his backup. Ennis doesn't quite have the same appeal as some of the other point guards in the draft, which has hurt his stock a little. Still, it's hard to see him slipping past the Bulls here or at No. 19. He's the sort of steady point guard who would be perfect coming off the bench for the Bulls. ESPN.com

Sources say the Nuggets have had serious discussions with the Bulls about swapping No. 11 for Nos. 16 and 19. If the Bulls get this pick, they'll grab either Harris or Stauskas here. If the Nuggets keep their pick, look for them to focus on their back court. Ty Lawson is the only real foundation piece they have. Nik Stauskas and a host of other wings are all possibilities here but the word is that Harris was a wow for them in workouts. Now that he's fully healthy and explosive again (Harris measured a 40-inch max vertical in his Lakers workout) he's another guy who could start rising. ESPN.com
