The Warriors want to land Kevin Love, and nothing made that more obvious than their willingness to part with Klay Thompson, the second-best player on the roster. 

As part of a package to lure the Wolves to trade Love, the Warriors have included Thompson in the talks, which increases their shot at landing the disgruntled forward, ESPN's Marc Stein reports.

ESPN's Chris Broussard added further details to a possible trade, adding that Minnesota's Kevin Martin, J.J. Barea and the 13th pick could be in the deal, while Klay Thompson and David Lee could be in the deal from Golden State.  

Minnesota has made efforts to retain Love, but the All-Star forward wants to play for a contender after missing the postseason for the first six years of his NBA career.

No change the Wolves have made suggests they have become a better team. President Flip Saunders hired himself as head coach and brought in Sam Mitchell as an assistant.

As for upgrades to the roster, the team is stuck in place until free agency comes because they do not hold a great pick in the upcoming draft. The Wolves are at No. 13, which is a few slots back of the elite talent.
