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.

Tim Kawakami: Source: MIN has made it clear that in any Love deal, the Warriors must also take back Kevin Martin. Not an insignificant thing... That's why it's not a straight decision between Thompson or Love. It's between Thompson + pieces and... Love + Martin's bad money. Twitter @timkawakami

According to a person with knowledge of the situation, the Warriors aren't keen on the idea of taking on the contract of veteran shooting guard Kevin Martin (three seasons, $21.2 million remaining) or giving up the future first-round pick that the Timberwolves are known to have asked for. (Because they owe their 2014 first round pick to the Utah Jazz, they would have to wait until the draft begins on Thursday night to trade their 2015 pick since league rules prohibit a team from owing first-round picks in consecutive years.) The person spoke to USA TODAY Sports on the condition of anonymity because of the private nature of negotiations. USA Today Sports

Intensely private and introverted, Adelman has shown a softer, warmer side over the past two months. Is that a sign that his mind is made up? If it is, this is not the way his players wanted to see him go. "I'm sure it's been tough on him, dealing with us knuckleheads and then he has to deal with his family problems," said Kevin Martin, who has played for Adelman both in Minnesota and Houston. "... You just wish him the best, whatever he feels like he needs to do. We'll be right beside him." Columbian

Darren Wolfson: Re: #Twolves, @Svmmy_ -- They'd love to have Martin come off the bench next year. Won't get fair return for Pek. Better off keeping. Twitter @DarrenWolfson
