    Were the Celts really as close as some here think?

    Baxter Holmes @BaxterHolmes 11 Jul 08:45 ET
    If the Celtics were ever really in the hunt for Kevin Love, well, one league source says, “That’s done now."

    Remember, the KG deal was also dead for almost a month.

    no AND ALL these first round choices are not worth much either.  It takes luck to get a good player and years to develop him.   Most likely lose him in free agency.  The players now pick out the teams that will have a chance to win it all.

    If the KG deal didn't happen, we would get Kevin Love now.

    Wolves REFUSE to blame themselves for that KG deal.

    Now they're making the Celts pay the price for their own mistake.

    I doubt that it works this way.  Minny had made a decision to trade KG.  It took them two years to come to that point.  The Celts simply offered the best package.  Too bad that Big Al tore his ACL and that Minny whiffed on another lottery pick.

    They have not made the decision to trade Love.  Unlike earlier, they can offer Love most money.  And it is hard to walk away from that kind of money.  Just ask Carmelo and Bosh.  Also, it is pretty obvious that they are not getting an enticing offer in return.

    Love will be in his contract year and will bust his butt to position himself for the next deal.  If somebody does not step up and overpay for him, he will likely start the season in Minnesota.

    It is absolutely ludicrous that people think THAT is the reason we havent been traded with for K Love. This is a multi - billion dollar business, and you really think that if they felt we had the best offer, they would handicap their own franchise JUST bc of a one-sided deal made 7 years ago? LOL stop.

    If Love wants to extend his contract in Boston, with the Cavs holding onto Wiggins, the Cs can now offer the better package in terms of draft picks plus Olynyk or Sully.


    Emphasis on 'if'.

    Cavs will cave. Lebron will make it so. He hasn't met with Cleveland front office yet to discuss the direction, but as soon as he does there will be an announcement that the Cavs will be willing to part with Wiggins.

    Why do you think LeBron only signed for two years and can opt out a year from now? So, that he can adjust his salary for the next big free agent in 2015 and 2016. He's patient and will gladly wait a year to get Love and keep Wiggins.

    If anyone caves, it's Flip. He's got very little leverage. What's he going to do? Let Love walk a year from now with nothing in return? The Cavs know this. Love knows this. Most likely Love will remain in Minnesota and will be dealt as a mid season rental for a team that his close to contending before the trade deadline or Flip will cave.

    With Irving, Waiters and LeBron, why do Cavs need more scoring?  Having Wiggins at 3 and LeBron at 4 can be terrorizing defense.  Perhaps the Cavs feel that they do not need Love.

    Re: Were the Celts really as close as some here think?

    For any report that a "league source" says the C's have no chance at Love, there's another that says we have the package or still in the running or DA is creative enough to make it happen for Love.

    This isn't dead. I'm not letting my Love dream die until he's on the court for a team other than Minny or Boston

    Actually, that's a good point. But KLove is like what Bosh was in Miami but a far better shooter and rebounder, that's a lethal tandem LBJ-Love.

    I disagree Les. I think LeBron wants to play with Wiggins, Irving & Waiters.

    If they get Ray Allen or Mike Miller and James Jones he'll be content for now.

    Re: Were the Celts really as close as some here think?

    As for Love, I'm ambivalent, I don't want to put all our future assets and direction focused on love or bust. If we could get Love without chaining our next five years future on him, he'd be a good pick up.

     99.99999999...% of "reports" or "inside information" is pulled directly out of some bloggers/reporters sphincters. 

    As for Wiggins,who say's he can't played the two? Wiggins could be LBJs Pippen. Maybe the Cavs wait til the off season to get Love if Minn won't blink on their asking price.

    They may not need much more in the way of scoring. But any team can use Love's 12+ RPG.

    Here:

    There are also a few other reasons why the Wolves might not be too hot about trading Love to Boston. One, Wolves owner Glen Taylor reportedly isn't keen on sending another star player to the Celtics after how the Kevin Garnett situation played out.

    http://www.sbnation.com/nba/2014/6/5/5782090/kevin-love-trade-rumors-kings-celtics-timberwolves" rel="nofollow">http://www.sbnation.com/nba/2014/6/5/5782090/kevin-love-trade-rumors-kings-celtics-timberwolves

     

    Mannix also said that Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor was “irked” the Celtics won a championship with Kevin Garnett and had a good five year run. So for a team with the longest current playoff drought in the NBA, it’s a hard sell to the fans to be continually rebuilding and trading yet another star to Boston.
