Way to go out on a limb.

dunno if i see this trade happening. we're gonna end up with a vastly overpaid Love (who's probably gonna get hurt or injured with us) and no bench. Kerr has been a big supporter of Barnes. i'd figure he'd try to keep him in the fold.

I dont think Stever Kerr would have any say on whether they trade or dont trade Harrison Barnes. This will be Joe Labob wanting to make a big splash if this deal goes down.

I agree with you about Lacob. There's still a lot of heat regarding the Mark Jackson firing. Acquiring a big name like Kevin Love with energize the fanbase, despite relieving David Lee, a big fan favorite in the Bay Area. From all accounts, Kerr/Myers/Lacob have a great relationship and it will be a collaborative decision. Taking on a Love contract could handcuff us and shorten our bench once more.

I get what you are saying but Kevin Love is young and a star in this league. Can you imagine Iggy with the ball and having Klay, Steph, or Love to get the ball to to drain 3s? Would be fun to watch thats for sure. I would sacrifice Barnes to switch David Lee for Kevin Love . My only worry ( and its a legit concern no doubt) is will signing Love on a sign and trade mean that Klay and Draymond wont be Warriors long term. That I dont want to happen.

i can see a Kevin Love contract forcing us to choose between Klay and Draymond
That would be a no brainer. Love Draymond but Klay's ability to shoot and defend makes him a guy you cant let walk in my opinion.

understanding that, make it Lee/Barknes/Draymond for Love then.

Deep inside I don't want to make this trade. Gut feeling says nah.
Not sure if I want Love...

Not going to include Draymond in that deal. I'd pass. Lee and Barnes or Lee and Draymond makes sense but not all 3.
I like the idea of Lee + Barnes + #1 pick for Kevin Love (extended) for these reasons:

1. We are totally locked in with Bogut and Iggy based on contracts. No way Barnes is going to have substantial effect on current/future team. He's not a 6th man who can jump in cold and drop 17pts/8rebs in 15min a game, he needs to start to get in a rhythm to get his game going by 4th quarter.

2. Bogut is guaranteed for injury time around 15-20 games minimum. Love takes over the rebound/points Bogut would miss easily while Festus could keep the defense up. Also, let's not forget this would create a MONSTER 4/5 combo when Bogut is healthy.

3. Yes, by signing Love long term, we lose depth in making sure we can only choose Klay or Draymond to sign longterm, but we all know Klay is the more important player for us, who can put up 30pts and defend the best guard on the other team. As fun as Draymond is, Love is the better player and is a consistent All Star for a reason.

4. Adding Love and extending Klay will help GS keep Curry, especially after his pleas to keep Jackson as coach were left unheard. If we give his a strong team, Curry will WANT to stay, especially with the scariness of a Curry/Love pick n' roll

5. As much as everyone worries about depth, remember this, great players in the past/present/future will always sacrifice money for a chance at a title if they haven't gotten one (R. Lewis, C. Butler, K. Malone, G. Payton, the Big 3 (they all took less to get titles), Ray Allen, etc.). A team with Curry/Klay/Love/Bogut will have strong vets pouring in for a chance to get a title. Also, the incentive moving to San Francisco opens a higher interest in vets wanting to move and play for Warriors.

Overall, I don't think we need Love to stay successful, but if we want a chance at titles, we WILL need to get that one more star (Curry/Klay are there, Bogut isn't one) to become true contenders.
I would like to see the Warriors try to get Jermaine to come back for one more year. However, if he doesnt want to pplay anymore I would immediately put him on the staff as the 5th assistant. I truly believe hs has a lot to still give this team in one way or another.

I like the idea making him an assistant, he'd help our bigs a lot and would still have good rapport with current players coach wise.

I think Klay is untouchable. Draymond? If he has to go then so be it.
If I'm the Wolves GM Klay is the deal starter. They want a shooter next to Rubio.

Yeah I am not sure either
lol, a top 5 talent (who can play at the post and the perimeter -- nightmare matchup for power forwards) is about to get traded to your team and you say no.

Alrighty then

I'm sure they'd love to have Klay, but that's probably a dealbreaker if I'm Bob Myers. Klay is one of the best 2-way players in the game, and getting better. The goal should be to form a Big 3 of Curry-Klay-Love. Any proposed deal that doesn't make that happen should not be considered IMO.
