One source insisted this week, however, that the Wolves -- especially owner Glen Taylor -- actually now prefer a package headlined by Wiggins to a Thompson-led haul for Love because Wiggins is widely seen as possessing superstar potential while also just starting out on a rookie contract. Thompson is eligible for a lucrative contract extension from the Warriors or any team he's traded to between now and Halloween. ESPN.com

The Warriors have an interesting decision to make on 2013 first-round pick Nemanja Nedovic, who did not exactly inspire gushing reviews through the team’s Las Vegas Summer League run, which just ended yesterday. It’s certainly not a Kevin Love/Klay Thompson level decision; just one of those interesting roster/payroll decisions teams face every year. -The decision: The Warriors have until Oct. 31 to decide whether to exercise Nedovic’s $1.15M third-year option for 2015-’16 (not for this season, but NEXT season), a paperwork deadline that only becomes tricky when the guy you drafted hasn’t looked very good for his first 13 months as an NBA player.

By what I heard and saw, I’d think it’s hard to envision Nedovic earning any kind of regular minutes in the league this season. He didn’t get into the lane regularly (which was supposed to be his specialty coming out of Europe), he continues to be a gaping hole on defense, and he just didn’t seem to be able to establish any kind of point-guard presence with his teammates.

Meanwhile, Thompson's agent, Bill Duffy, has been seeking a max deal in extension talks with the Warriors as well. And while Golden State would surely prefer that the stance eventually softens and leads to a more palatable deal, the fact that he is younger means a max for Thompson would start at $15.7 million and still allow for more flexibility in the Warriors future than a Love deal.

It hasn’t been a simple slam-dunk decision for Warriors co-owner Joe Lacob and GM Bob Myers–that’s what I’ve been repeatedly told in the last few days by several NBA sources, as the Kevin Love talks continue and the Warriors continue to resist Minnesota’s request for Klay Thompson. The Warriors want Love, as do many other teams. The Warriors also believe that Love would like being in the Bay Area, so they’re not overly worried about his ability to become a free agent next summer, though the pending free agency is a factor for everybody. (He’ll be a max-contract guy, he’ll have power over his team until he signs it, all those things are factors.) San Jose Mercury-News

Tim Kawakami: Checked with an NBA source who says there's no indication the Warriors will up their bid for Kevin Love if Cleveland makes a bigger push. Translation: Even if CLE is willing to put Wiggins into a KLove bid, the Warriors still aren't willing to do the same with Klay Thompson. Twitter @timkawakami

Tim Kawakami: I've heard that GSW front office has been grinding on this one. It's not a 100% clean call. But as of now, they've decided to keep Klay T. Twitter @timkawakami
