I disagree, I think Rudy Gay is a reasonable return for Kevin Love if Minnesota decide to part ways with K-Love.
They are unlikely to get an equal talent in return for Love. An All-Star caliber SF that is only 26 years old. A strong two way player who can be a fixture on the NBA's top ten scorer's list for the next half a decade and change.
It wouldn't be a straight swap. Need some sweeteners. But a trade package based around Rudy Gay would make a very competitive offer for Kevin Love.
Honestly, how many teams are really going to top that? It's not like Chicago is going to be giving up Derrick Rose or New York will give up Carmelo. How many teams out there will actually put more on the table than a Rudy Gay based trade offer?
See, I don't think the T-Wolves are anywhere close to considering trading K-Love. I think his comments about being frustrated with losing have been way overblown. The team hasn't really gotten a chance to see how they can perform with Love and Rubio fully healthy and clicking.
The K-Love trade speculation is at least a year too soon.
