Lakers Trade Rumors: Team Assembling Trade Offers For Kevin Love
[new_royalslider id=”196″]

The Lakers have been linked with Minnesota Timberwolves superstar Kevin Love for some time now. Apparently, the team is not trying to wait until Love hits free agency to make their move.

According to CBS Sports’ Ken Berger, the team is currently in the process of assembling trade scenarios in an attempt to land the All-Star:

[…]it is widely known around the league that he and his agent, New York-based Jeff Schwartz, are determined to get him to a major market. The Lakers, Love’s first choice, “have the best shot” of landing the Southern California native, one person familiar with the player’s thinking said.

Any trade for Love will undoubtedly include center Pau Gasol, and likely the team’s first round draft pick this season, a prime asset in a very deep draft.

Chances of landing Love in a trade right now seem slim, however, as Timberwolves President Flip Saunders has indicated that he has no intention of trading Love before this Thursday’s deadline.

Of course, if you have a shot at landing a player of Love’s caliber, you have to make that move immediately. The Lakers could be a very different looking team by the time the trade deadline ends.
