If Randle has a 16/8 rookie season....I'm not sure they will trade him ...Might have two really good PFs on the team

Nobody would absolutely love for Randle to become the next Barkley or Malone or even Webber or Z-Bo more than me, but if some sort of trade scenario comes up centered around Randle where we receive Kevin Love, you do it.

Unless he starts off as a 20/10 dude and makes the FO double think trading him, I think the Lakers do this trade 10/10 times if it were to come up this season.

[expletive] Randle man if you have to a chance to get Love you do it. Trade Randle or bring him off the bench or even make him the ballboy doesn't matter you don't pass up on that chance.

watching Randle handle it today and all the potential he has particularly bringing it up the court and attacking in the half court from the top of the key.  

yeah I want to see THAT develop and see precisely what his ceiling is.  Especially on a rookie contract ;)

So you wouldn't trade Randle for Love?

If Kevin Love is not traded before the season starts and remains with the Wolves until February and Kobe can return to his 2011/2012-13 self, we'll have a very good chance at landing Kevin Love.

 

I love me some Randle but if it means netting you Kevin Love, you do it.

Love on the Warriors would that mean that the T'Wolves would get Thompson and Lee?

I think Randle is worth more to us now moving forward because of his rookie contract. If we were to net Love on a max contract, we'd definitely have to wait for Kobe to retire to land any other piece to convince Love to stay.

Bro, getting Love without giving up Randle would mean that we will never ever lose in the rebounding category. We would crash every single rebound.

 

But the Wolves obviously need something of value in return.

Totally agree with this. I think we would have to give up something of value. That is something the Lakers don't have. Who do they have at is equivalent to Thompson and Lee or Bogut? We have Randle, Nash's contract and a couple of picks. Would Minnesota be interested in any of these?

Kobe, Love, and a good coach would be enough to get some additional help. Randle will not be a player of that caliber likely ever in his career.

Warriors should offer Thompson and Lee and call it a day.

If that's true then Wiggins is gone.

Called this some time ago. Wonder if either team blinks.
