's the best rebounder in the league and wouldn't come cheap. The asking price, unless the Wolves are willing to just give him away, would start, I repeat, start, at Russell Westbrook. Love said recently that he would love to rejoin Westbrook as teammates in the NBA. And I suppose that's how the talk got started. But I wouldn't read much into it.
On if the Thunder will make a trade or "nifty" move before the deadline:
Nifty is the key word, because I' said in this chat last week that I don't think the core players will be touched. But the Thunder has so many assets that can be packaged for something that I think Presti and Co. will find something enticing. It could be more draft picks, or it could be a young player currently on a small contract. But I can almost guarantee you we won't see a high-dollar, long-term contract coming back this way. The Thunder's payroll structure won't allow for it going forward, especially with new rules of a renegotiated collective bargaining agreement still up in the air.
