"Flip not enamored by Celtics deal"
"Danny locked on Gordon"
"Kings willing to deal without assurances"
"Danny wants to trade up in draft"
"Boston still thinks they have Duncan"
Don't believe ANYTHING from EITHER side. This is the chess game. Minnesota knows we have the most to offer. Young players and picks.
We have any combination of Green, KO, Sully, Bogans (who can be waived immediately for cap relief) 6th and 17th pick of this year and could offer our own futures or the clippers or Bkn picks we own.
Chicago has one young guy that shoots 39% and one older guy that has already peaked. They also one middle of the first round pick and they do have Mirotic who might be good, who knows?
Golden State won't offer much beyond Lee, Barnes, they have no picks this year and their futures aren't too enticing.
Don't listen to the sabre rattling just read between the lines. Minnesota is strongly considering dealing with us no matter what they say, they just want a ton back.
They might get it but it will be us saying no to their insane asking price not them looking elsewhere.
