Wojnarowski: C's may not have enough for Love

Wojnarowski: C's may not have enough for Love

We're still waiting for fireworks this offseason, and if Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski is right, we may be waiting for them past next week's NBA Draft.

Woj doesn't think the Celtics have enough to get a deal done with the Timberwolves, and he doesn't see the Wolves rushing to make a deal. He talked to the guys on Felger and Mazz about it on Friday.

"I don't think Boston has enough to do a deal now," Wojnarowski said. "I think it's becoming increasingly likely that Minnesota just goes forward with Love. The pressure is really off for them to do something by the draft because they're not really involved with any teams picking high enough for Minnesota to get a really high pick or even the package of picks if Boston gave them their two picks, they may not be able to get a difference-maker out of there."

Woj also says that the Wolves' asking price may be too high - perhaps by design.

"I think once Flip Saunders has taken over as coach, I think the odds are more and more that he's going to coach the team that's there. What he's asking for from Golden State is so rich, they're not going to do Klay Thompson and Harrison Barnes, and that's what Minnesota wants. They're not getting both of them, at least not now. And I think that a little bit of what's going on is Flip Saunders is going around, he's discussing deals that he knows probably are never going to happen, and he can go back to Kevin Love and his agent and say, 'Hey, we tried. See you in training camp.'"

The guys go on to talk about potential Rondo trades, and it sounds like Sacramento could be a team interested in acquiring the C's point guard if Ainge does indeed go that route.

The problem is that Sacramento may not have enough to entice Ainge.
