The Minnesota Timberwolves began their trade talks involving Kevin Love with the Golden State Warriors before eventually agreeing upon a deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The Warriors were unwilling to include Klay Thompson in any deal for Love, which made a trade impossible for both sides.
The Wolves acquired Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett and Thaddeus Young for Love, Alexey Shved and Luc Mbah a Moute.
Flip Saunders says the Wolves would have kept Love if the deal with the Cavaliers didn't come together. There were no other trades on the table at that point which were to the Wolves' liking.
