In response to hedleylamarr's comment:
FB - to answer your question (these reply things get too long) - without a third team involved, I think Green, Bogans, Young and Sully (3 picks max) is fair for Love.
If they want us to take Martin, we throw in Anthony and Thornton, and take back Young.
I would use Bass instead of Bogans - and, of course, Wallace.
But 3 first round picks should be the key. Rookie contracts are four years now.
Since they just took (F me) LaVine, they might not want Young, though.............
Rehash - Bass, Green, Fav, Bogans, Young and 3 #1's for Love and Martin.

If no Bynum injury, no Gasol trade - last word!!
Good stuff. Getting close to what the Wolves would have to consider is a good offer.
Smart over Vonleh hurt us b/c even if Danny valued Smart more, Vonleh had more value to a team like the Wolves. They already have a PG with shooting issues in Rubio.
I think Danny needs to move Smart and Anthony's expiring contract for a young player Minny really desires. Maybe someone still on his rookie deal, but nearing the end of it. This would have to wait until 30 days after Smart signed his contract.
If we are going to take on Martin's contract 3/21, they need to take Wallace at 2/20. If we take Martin they definitely get Young, who is the young shooter they see replacing him and pairing so well with the shooting challenged Rubio.
Wallace, Bass, Sully, Young, Zeller (over Olynyk) and a future pick for Love and Martin.
Then in a separate deal Smart, Anthony (6 million or so) and a future pick are traded for a young player in his prime the Wolves want. Not Klay Thompson obviously. But someone who can be traded and sent back for a contract like Barea, Budinger or Brewer in the 5 million range.
THAT type of deal going down in the middle of August MIGHT entice the Wolves.
Before then Danny can still try and move Bogans and Anthony or Bogans and Bass in a move with maybe a pick tossed in for a player the Wolves would want.
We know Love will have to join a team with Rondo, Bradley, Green and one of Olynyk/Zeller at center to feel he is instantly competitive and playoff bound. All Danny should ask him to do is pick up his option year.
