    Warriors offer Klay Thomson + DLee in addition to What ? They cannot trade their draft picks before draft night. Barnes is untouchable or is already in the package for Love?

    Love + Martin for Lee + Thompson + Barnes

    Bogut/O'Neal
    Love/Ezeli
    Iggy/Green
    Martin/Crawford
    Curry/Blake

    Pekovic/Dieng
    Lee/Cunningham
    Barnes/Brewer
    Thompson/Shabazz
    Rubio/Barea

    If Minny wants to retool as opposed to rebuild, this is much better than Boston's offer

    Would be great for everybody if he ended up with the Warriors. Sure you give up Klay but shooters can be found and splash brothers was fun, but nothing to make you say contenders. With a true big man, a wing and a guard in place, they can go far.

    Warriors win that deal easily. Kevin Martin is better than Klay Thomson IMO.

    A Curry-Martin backcourt would be... interesting on defense.

    Not a suprise that the Warrior relented on Thompson. Love is worth way too much to hold up a deal over Thompson. My guess is this info came out of the Wolves camp for the purpose of seeing whether the other bidders would up their own bids.

    I hope Morey makes the right choice and trade a very good player for a great one.

    Magical. Pair that with Love and you have the new Triangle of runways to the rim.

    He was a better man defender than Iggy last season.

    Even Harden would say, "Ah hell naw, they suck at D."

    Love is not that bad, no worse than David Lee. Curry was OK, too, this season but that was when he was constantly getting "courtesy defensive assignments" with Klay guarding the better scoring PGs whenever GSW plays one. Now we'll see if Curry can handle life without a bodyguard cuz K.Mart ain't gonna do that job.

    Klay is younger and will get better
    Martin is degressing.

    Either way. This works for both teams. Getting a 13th pick this draft is a major deal steal.

    Curry-Martin-iggy-love-bogut is a great lineup. I'm not so sure about D fence though especially in the perimeter. I guess well see.

    Also

    A Rubio - klay - Barnes- lee - prokovic makes a young team lineup.

    Just a great deal overall. I like it.

    Man our rivalry with them is gonna be epic if they land love. Be even better if it turns into a 1 year rental and he walks to NY or LA

    Martin isn't exactly guaranteed to start. They'll still have the MLE and their TPE if they want to add defense to the guard spot.

    I still believe the Rockets can top any GS offer, but perhaps Flip Saunders is simply a gigantic fan of Klay Thompson.

    I can't wrap my mind around the 3pt shooting prowess of a Curry-Martin-Love trio with Iggy and Bogut as defensive support.

    The NBA fan in me wants to see this happen

    Chandler Parsons is as good as Klay Thompson.

    Terrence Jones is a lot better than Harrison Barnes.

    Omer Asik is a lot better and cheaper than David Lee.

    Multiple firsts is better than one.

    Because Kevin Love will insult their ties or something, as they sit there in street clothes?

    Knowing both teams pretty well, I think you are wrong on everything in those comparisons but Asik being cheaper than Lee.
