    Love for Douglas straight up.
    Maybe add Gallery Furniture store credit to sweeten.

    they have rubio, so i dont think they would want lin unless for marketing and kahn factor.
    - they have pekovic but maybe they want asik
    - parsons would forsure be gone
    - jones would be gone too, dmo too if it is kahn factor
    - throw in some picks
    = probably not enough but kahn factor comes into the equation haha
    - it gets confusing with players on valuable contracts like delfino, morris, smith, douglas

    - say we end up with lin, harden, delfino, love, smith, we would need free agents or draft picks to fill out and be a contender (therefore it would be tougher if we give up lots of draft picks)

    My conclusion.. would be a pipe dream unless a multiple team trade is in play

    We'd need a third team that can take Asik and/or Lin and dish out bad contracts with a really high pick.

    Nah it's store credit at the 45 north location not the upscale post oak store.

    That sounds like a fair deal for all sides. I tried the trade machine but can't input the correct variables :rolleyes:

    Love is not getting traded right now. He cannot become free until 2015. Disgruntled stars don't get traded when there is 2.5 seasons still left on their contracts. Don't have leverage when it's this early to force their way out. The team mostly would still hold out hope of making some moves to convince the guy to stay. Stars get traded mostly when they are on the last year of the contract (Deron Williams being the exception, but he had 1.5 years left, not 2.5).

    Minny is doing decently-- looking like a possible playoff team for the first time in forever. They are not giving up on Kevin Love right now. NOt yet.

    Now, if the drama escalates, trade deadline 2014 will be interesting. Or maybe summer 2013, but that's a stretch.

    And this would be the whitest starting lineup in the NBA.

    Love is overrated. He doesn't play defense at all.

    The same can can be said of Harden.

    Kevin Love is the best power forward in this league on both ends of the floor. No argument even possible there.period.

    Now, if we have a crap season and get a top 10 pick, I'd try to package that and however many of our PF's it'd take for him.

    I'd step on faces to get this to happen; however, can you really see denniscd's man crush allowing Love to get l-o-v-e in...Houston?

    Neither does Patterson, but at least Love grabs rebounds.

    If we could get Kevin Love, The Rebounding God, our team would have the best one two punch in the NBA.

    But first we need to finish with a better record then the Wolves, and if the wolves could miss the playoffs, that would go a long way in possibly attaining Kevin Love in the future.

    Love would be a perfect fit with this team. He can shoot and rebound, he'd be amazing in pick n rolls with either harden or Lin.

    They should have more leverage for being white. So their whiteness will cancel out Kevin Love's caucasianess.

    False God made of Chocolate Mousse + our up&coming young PF duo vs. True God of Rebounding and Spacing?

    Yes, I'll take Love instead.
