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

Rush will hold the option on the 2015-16 season, a source said. Rush, 29, returns to the Warriors, who had traded him as part of a salary dump to Utah a year ago. Golden State had been impressed with Rush's production in his full seasons there in 2011-12, before a knee injury cost him several months of rehabilitation. Yahoo! Sports

The Timberwolves and Warriors have continued to discuss a Kevin Love trade, but the teams remain unable to agree on the framework of a deal, with Golden State still unwilling to include Klay Thompson, according to sources close to the process. ESPN.com

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.

With most of the NBA in Las Vegas for summer league games, the two sides have had a chance to meet face-to-face to talk about a deal mentioned as a possibility for more than a month. The person requested anonymity because both teams are not publicly commenting on trade discussions. Timberwolves president and coach Flip Saunders was seen talking to Warriors GM Bob Myers at the arena on Sunday as the two sides look to bridge the gaps that caused discussions to stall.
