ESPN: Warriors Weighing Trade for Kevin Love

ESPN: Warriors Weighing Trade for Kevin Love

Minnesota Timberwovles/NBA(NEW YORK) -- If the Golden State Warriors truly want to get their hands on Minnesota Timberwolves All-Star forward Kevin Love, they'll have to pay a heavy price. ESPN reports that the team is seriously weighing their options to find what it would take to acquire him via trade.

Reportedly the Timberwolves are asking for a future first-round pick, Klay Thompson, David Lee, and maybe Harrison Barnes in exchange for Love and Kevin Martin.

That is a steep price to pay, but Love is arguably one of the best players in the NBA. This past season, the 25-year-old averaged 26.1 points and 12.5 rebounds per game. He was the only player in the NBA this past season to be in the top-5 in points and rebounds.

Despite Love's immense talent, he hasn't made it to the playoffs during his six-year career. While he hasn't officially asked for a trade, he is likely to opt out of his contract next season to test free agency.

Other than the Warriors, the Denver Nuggets and Boston Celtics have reportedly engaged in trade talks for Love.

Sources: Cavaliers Reach Out to Marc Jackson

Sources: Cavaliers Reach Out to Marc Jackson

Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Marc Jackson may not be in his new job for long. The current ESPN Analyst, who rejoined the network after being fired by Golden State last month, is reportedly being targeted by the Cleveland Cavaliers for their vacancy.

Sources say that Cavaliers general manager David Griffin called Jackson and spoke with him about becoming the team's head coach. No formal interview was set-up and there have been no reports to gauge Jackson's interest in the position.

The team has already interviewed such candidates as Alvin Gentry, Lionel Hollins, Vinny Del Negro, and former Cavalier Mark Price. David Blatt, the former coach of Maccabi Tel Aviv, is reportedly a person of interest as well. 

Jackson coached the Golden State Warriors for three season, building up a 121-109 record and helping to lead the team into the playoffs in consecutive seasons for the first time in 22 years. The Warriors won 51 games in 2013-14 under Jackson's tutelage.

Mark Jackson Returning to ESPN

Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- A constant name in the NBA coaching rumor mill, Mark Jackson has landed a new gig. The former Golden State Warrior head man will be returning to his old post as part of ESPN's NBA coverage.

Jackson reached a multiyear deal on Saturday to return to a place he spent five years. The 17-time All-Star will be reunited with former broadcast partners Mike Breen and Jeff Van Gundy beginning on Sunday when the trio calls Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals between Indiana and Miami.

After being fired by Golden State earlier this month, Jackson was rumored to be a candidate for the vacant New York Knicks position. Jackson was 121-109 in three season with the Warriors and led the team to a 51-31 mark this year, the best since the 1991-92 campaign.

Golden State was bounced in the first round of the playoffs by the Los Angeles Clippers. The Warriors hired Steve Kerr as head coach on May 14.

Steve Kerr Hired by Warriors

Steve Kerr Hired by Warriors

Jed Jacobson/Getty Images(NEW YORK) --  The Golden State Warriors have hired Steve Kerr to be their next head coach. 

After turning down a chance to coach the New York Knicks, Kerr agreed to a five-year, $25 million deal to replace the fired Mark Jackson in Golden State.

"They have a good young team. The location is ideal," Kerr said on Wednesday night. "My daughter goes to Cal and plays volleyball. My oldest son is in college in San Diego and our youngest is a junior in high school. It's just a short flight for them."

Kerr was believed to be in talks with the Knicks ever since Phil Jackson was brought to New York to serve as their team president. He won three NBA titles playing for Jackson in Chicago. However, after talking it over with his family, Kerr decided to stay in his home state of California.

"I told Phil, 'I think I have to pursue this other opportunity,' " Kerr said. "He gave me his blessing. He said go look at it, and do what was in my heart."

Kerr spent three seasons as general manager of the Phoenix Suns before stepping down in 2010.  He has never been a head coach.

The Warriors went 51-31 this past season and were eliminated by the Los Angeles Clippers in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs.
