Your Morning Dump… Where Kevin Love wants out of Minny and the Celtics are an option (allegedly)

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.

 

 

 

Peter Vecsey is no longer the credible insider he was back in the 90s, but any report linking Kevin Love and the Celtics deserves our attention.

A few things to consider as you start to imagine Love wearing green:

Wolves President Flip Saunders refuted this report last night on Twitter. A source told CBS Sports Ken Berger that there’s no way Saunders trades Love before the deadline. I agree. If Saunders is forced to make a move this year, it makes sense to wait until draft night.

Many assume Love wants to return to his home state and play for the Lakers. That’s a viable option if Love is a free agent. But if Saunders makes the bidding public, the Lakers are screwed. Aside from whatever draft pick they get this year, they have no real assets.

As for the Rajon Rondo trade rumors, CSNNE’s Sherrod Blakely says it’s very slim and the Globe’s Baxter Holmes says the Celtics are not close to completing any deals.

The deadline is today at 2  3pm.

    If we fall out the top 6 Danny needs to go for it. Not really a huge Love fan but hes better than anyone after the top 3.

  • Jester00

    WOW Love is better than anyone we have right now would be thrilled to see him and sully together and 42 is open!

    • pierce Hart

      Would they mesh. Either you play one at SF or you accept you haven’t got a defence and release your inner Dallas.

      • LA Flake

        yup. defense wins championships.

      • Jester00

        One can play C one can play PF have you watched basketball before? The dude is a stud a game changer and most likely the best PF/c in the game right now. What did he do last night? not much 42 and 16 vs Indiana!!!!!!!! sometimes you folks make me SMH

        • pierce Hart

          No need for the cheek at all. I’m questioning if it would work. 2 players of the same mould.

          • Curt Hays

            @jester00:disqus isn’t trying to bust your balls. Just think of what he says as something you’d hear from your boys at the bar. Friendly abrasiveness.

          • Jester00

            yes never take what i say personally

        • LA Flake

          Yeah and he led his team to the playoffs and…Oh, right. Nevermind.

          • jrleftfoot

            how many times did the Wolves fail to make the playoffs with KG?

      • Curt Hays

        This is THE reason why I had so much trouble cheering for the Mavs before Rick Carlisle (Celtics 1984-87) became the coach.

    • chuckmckenney

      A trade for Love would most likely involve Sullinger.

      • Jester00

        I know but can’t a kid dream, maybe they feel need for Bass or KO or any one not named AB or Sully

        • jrleftfoot

          you`d have to give up AB for Love , along with some others. Sully is more questionable.

          • LA Flake

            Minny will demand AT LEAST Sully and AT LEAST one of our UNPROTECTED picks. AT LEAST. Screw that. He ain’t worth it.

  • LA Flake

    Honestly ask yourself: Is getting Love going to put us over the top? Will he make us a contender? Will he & Rondo be good enough to beat MIA, IND & OKC?

    Unless Kevin Durant demands a trade to us, I’m not interested.

    • jrleftfoot

      Miami is an aging flawed team. Very few players put teams over the top by themselves. Love would be a helluva nice piece.

      • LA Flake

        I like Sully and his old school style. No. I LOVE Sully and his old school style. I prefer it over Love’s bombs-away approach. And Sully gets physical on defense. He actually plays it. And since Sully and Love don’t mix, I prefer to keep Sully and add to our young core.

        • Curt Hays

          Sully and Love don’t mix? How can you love Sully? :-)

          I still would be happy with KLove. Other than his injuries, he’s almost as much of an impact this generation as KG was.

          • LA Flake

            GASP! BLASPHEMY!

          • Curt Hays

            I will say that, no matter what, I will not have a KLove jersey. I only have room in my heart for one Kevin.

    • Curt Hays

      If we just had every player named Kevin, we’d be okay. Haven’t we been over this? :-)

      • LA Flake

        Hmm…Kinda hard to argue with that. McHale, Garnett…

        • Curt Hays

          Yes, The Kevins is the best name team out there.

          McHale
          Garnett
          Gamble
          Durant
          Love
          Johnson
          Martin
          etc.

  • RedsLoveChild

    You don`t hesitate on this one…throw the house at Minny to get KL!

    Love is a winner…him transforming his once soft body into a lean, mean machine tells you all you need about the fire that burns inside him.

    This is where Sully could learn from KL. “Daddy Satch” has to demand Sully to drop the excess flab to increase his quickness, stamina, career.

  • pierce Hart

    A core of Embiid Love and Rondo has me drooling.

  • Andrew Vellucci

    Keep Sully here a trade i think the Wolves would like Avery Bradley, Jeff Green, and Brandon Bass, 14 nets/hawks pick, 15 clippers pick, and that protected 1st rounder from philly which eventually turns into 3 seconds Celtics get Kevin Love and Dante cunningham

  • Lee in Oregon

    If DA can pull this off I’d flip……as would any remaining T-Wolves fans…
