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

If there is a trademark J.J. Hickson look, it's a sweaty one. The Nuggets forward has made a name in the NBA through hard work, and isn't about to let it slide now during this, the most important few months of his career. Hickson is working his way back into form following surgery on the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, the first surgery of any kind he's endured in his six-year career. He's aiming for a return prior to the start of the regular season, but it likely won't be at the start of training camp, he said. Hickson will be ready at "some point in" training camp, he told The Post on Monday. Denver Post



Carmelo Anthony is way up there, but can't beat two legends from the run-and-gun teams of the 80's.
