Sources told ESPN.com that Wolves owner Glen Taylor and Warriors counterpart Joe Lacob have maintained a level of dialogue on a potential trade of Love to Golden State, which sources insist would have been clinched by now had the Warriors -- at the behest of new coach Steve Kerr -- relented on their refusal to part with Thompson. The Warriors have been unwilling to offer the Timberwolves more than a combination of former All-Star forward David Lee and 2012 lottery pick Harrison Barnes -- likely packaged with a future first-round pick -- in exchange for Love and swingman Kevin Martin, according to sources.

“He’s fine,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said Sunday, adding Lee had been working out. Lee, 31, underwent a surgery for the third consecutive offseason. He had procedures to repair a torn right hip flexor in 2013 and torn abdominal and abductor muscles in 2012. Contra Costa Times

Warriors coach Steve Kerr has not met face-to-face with David Lee yet after several meetings have been postponed, including the forward’s trip to Las Vegas. But the two have spoken several times and kept in touch via text message, with Kerr early on having talked to both Lee and Klay Thompson about their names surfacing in trade talks and rumors regarding Kevin Love. “They both get it,” Kerr said. “I told them, ‘I know you get it. It doesn’t make it any easier.’ But this is why you really get paid. I mean, you get paid made all this money, is it really for coming into a gym for two hours a day and shooting jump shots? We’ve been doing that for free our whole life, you know? You get paid because you can get traded, and you have to uproot your family. You can get hurt, you can get booed, and people on the message board are crushing you. That’s where you actually earn your money in this league, where it actually feels like work.” Contra Costa Times

Hearing Suns' Channing Frye will definitely opt out of his deal (player option for 2014-15 at $6.8 million). If that happens, I'm sure the Warriors will go hard after him, and that he'd be interested. There's mutual respect between Frye and Steve Kerr. NBA.com
