LAS VEGAS (AP) – A person with knowledge of the situation tells The Associated Press that the Minnesota Timberwolves and Golden State Warriors have restarted trade talks for All-Star forward Kevin Love.
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 during summer league play in Las Vegas on Sunday.
The two teams had been going back and forth with proposals involving Love since before the draft. But the Warriors’ reluctance to include shooting guard Klay Thompson in any package to Minnesota was considered a deal-breaker for the Timberwolves.
The Timberwolves also have been talking to the Cleveland Cavaliers, who so far have been unwilling to include Andrew Wiggins in any offer.
