The Timberwolves may try to include Kevin Martin and J.J. Barea in any trade that involves Kevin Love.

Dealing away Martin and Barea would clear about $24.7 in guaranteed salary off the Wolves' books, while clearing more minutes in the backcourt for No. 13 pick Zach LaVine. The Bulls and Nuggets may still be in the mix for Love, but the Cavaliers appear to be the favorites if they consent to packaging Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett, a future first-round pick, and enough spare parts to make the salaries match.
