if Westbrook gets moved, I wonder if that puts Beal majorly into play as he might not want to stay there long term... especially playing with the Lakers pupu platter of players. Not that we would be in those sweepstakes, just interesting to watch.

Saw this about Kevin Love and the Olympics. Sounds like he's done.

This is from The Athletic.

Colangelo on Kevin Love: “I didn’t think Kevin Love was gonna play. I wasn’t even sure he had much left to play. He reached out to us and said he was in shape and said he felt he owed us. And on the basis of that, we’re looking at someone with international experience who at one time was a heck of a rebounder and could still shoot the ball. You know, being like a 12th man on a roster. Well, it didn’t work out. He wasn’t in shape. And he was way behind as it turned out. So you move on. Call it a mistake. Call it giving someone an opportunity. Someone who had equity with us. Guys who play for us get a little plus.”

Yeah, Jerry seems to be done as well. He wouldn't slam a player like that first. If others had commented on Love being finished or something then it wouldn't surprise me to see Jerry release a comment like that but to jump out in front seems odd. I'm curious if anything else comes out over the next few days.

Really? I'm surprised you guys took it that way. I thought it was forthright while still being somewhat diplomatic. I didn't get to read the whole article but I assumed it was in response to the charge of racism by Jalen Rose and others.

I just mean after the 76ers debacle and mismanagement of Team USA lately I just figured he close to retirement. The comments regarding Love were just odd. Why rip a guy when it was your mistake? Love is bad/injured and quit on his team last year.

sounds like he put trust in Love when love over sold himself to team USA. And called it as it was.
