Eastern Rumors: Love, Knicks, Douglas-Roberts

The Knicks made a longshot trade offer for Kevin Love that the Wolves immediately turned down, reports Chris Herring of The Wall Street Journal. The offer was Amar’e Stoudemire, Iman Shumpert, and Tim Hardaway Jr., a package well shy of the value Minnesota is looking to secure in any potential deal for Love. Stoudemire and Shumpert have apparently been on the block of late, but while Hardaway is reportedly “virtually untouchable,” New York’s shot in the dark at least shows its willingness to part with him for the right return. Here’s more from around the East:

  • A Wolves official disputes the notion that the Knicks ever made an offer for Love, as Jon Krawczynski of The Associated Press reports (on Twitter).

Earlier updates:

  • Chris Douglas-Roberts is among the free agents who interest the Heat as they look for veteran wing players, according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald. Agent Wallace Prather has reached out to the team about client MarShon Brooks, but it’s unclear whether the Heat have any interest in him. The Heat are among 11 teams limited to paying no more than the minimum salary to free agents from other clubs, as I noted earlier today.
  • Miami is remaining non-committal about bringing back free agents Michael Beasley and Greg Oden, as Jackson writes in the same piece. The agents for both veterans tell Jackson that the Heat have been in contact regarding their clients, but that they are receiving interest from other teams as well.
  • The Hornets didn’t necessarily sign Brian Roberts for the room exception, as originally thought, when they made his deal official Wednesday, tweets Eric Pincus of the Los Angeles Times. It appears as though they have enough cap space to use on Roberts and preserve the exception to use on someone else, should they choose.

Regarding the Knicks offer, I think if they had 1st rd picks available to offer, it might have worked out. Obviously, if the cavs offer wiggins, then they have the best offer. A possible Wolves-Knicks deal could be as follows if knicks had two 1st rd picks to offer.

Knicks get: Love, K Martin, Barea.
Wolves get: Stoudemire, Shumpert, Hardaway Jr, Larkin, two 1st rd picks.

Since a 2018 1st rd pick is the earliest the Knicks can offer, they have no shot for love. IMO, Minny needs to make a trade before the season starts. Once the season starts Love’s value goes down due to the fact that he can just leave at the end of the year.

Adding two first round picks doesn’t make that deal much better. Stoudemire has no value, and Shumpert isn’t anything exciting either. Hardaway is the only intriguing name on that list but him with a couple first rounders is not worth Love by a long shot.
