HoopsHype Klay Thompson rumors

June 20, 2014 Updates

And though recent reports indicated that Thompson only recently became part of the talks between the Warriors and Timberwolves, a league source stressed that Thompson has always been available. “That’s who [Minnesota] has always wanted from the beginning,” the source said. “Minnesota’s thing has always been about Klay Thompson.” Boston Globe

The potential trade, as described by Mychal Thompson, is this: Klay Thompson, forward David Lee and a future No. 1 pick (probably 2015) would go to the Timberwolves in exchange for Kevin Love and guard Kevin Martin. "My source knows what's going on up there (in Oakland)," Thompson said Thursday morning on the air of ESPN LA 710. "And since this guy told me that this is really close to happening, it just kind of depressed me." CSNBayArea.com

First point: The Warriors probably know by now that they have the assets to get Kevin Love from Minnesota, and that’s a powerful bit of knowledge to have. Second point: A Warriors source disputes the idea that Klay Thompson has “been made available” in Love trade talks, though obviously there is a lot of gray area here and even more obviously Thompson seems to be the player Minnesota wants most in any potential Love deal.

"It's disappointing, because Klay and I have been talking about this all summer and the possibility of this happening, as far as him and Kevin being together on the same team – along with Steph Curry," Mychal Thompson said. "And he was really looking forward to that. He thought that if you added Love to the Splash Brothers, with (Andrew) Bogut and (Andre) Iguodala, they had a chance . . . to get to the West finals next year. CSNBayArea.com
