The Golden State Warriors have held several trade talks with the Minnesota Timberwolves regarding power forward Kevin Love, but so far the teams are at an impasse.

The main reason why the Minnesota Timberwolves are open to trading Kevin Love (for the right price) is that his current deal is guaranteed only through the 2014-15 campaign.
