July 18, 2014 Updated Jul 18, 2014 at 9:11 PM CDT

Minneapolis, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- The Golden State Warriors are now open to including shooting guard Klay Thompson in trade discussions with the Minnesota Timberwolves about Kevin Love, that according to a report on Friday by Yannis Koutroupis of Basketball Insiders.

The Warriors had previously been publicly against trading Thompson, but this news comes less than 24 hours after the Cleveland Cavaliers reportedly became willing to include 2014 top draft pick Andrew Wiggins in a deal for Love.

Koutroupis' report indicates that Love would exercise his option for the 2015-16 season if traded to Golden State, whereas he will likely become an unrestricted free agent after the 2014-15 season should he stay with Minnesota.
