The Golden State Warriors and Minnesota Timberwolves have re-opened Kevin Love trade talks since arriving at the Las Vegas summer league, reports Jon Krawczynski of the Associated Press

The Warriors and Timberwolves had discussions earlier in the summer about a trade centered on Love, though the teams reached an impasse when the Warriors reportedly were hesitant to part with shooting guard Klay Thompson. ESPN.com reported in June that consultant Jerry West and new head coach Steve Kerr were opposed to surrendering Thompson plus a future first-round pick in a trade. 

Several other teams have explored Love trades, including the Boston Celtics, Chicago Bulls, Denver Nuggets, and recently the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Cavs reportedly are not including number one overall pick Andrew Wiggins in an offer for Love.
