With NBA draft completed, Kevin Love remains with Wolves

MINNEAPOLIS -- Kevin Love is still a member of the Timberwolves. For now, at least.

Flip Saunders said after the completion of the second round of the NBA Draft that he was not close to trading any of his players during the draft.

There have been hints in media reports lately that Minnesota might actually start the season with Kevin Love on the roster. But that seems unlikely and it's hard to tell what is posturing and what represents reality at this time of year. Love has one guaranteed season left on his contract, and he has the ability to opt out and become a free agent after this season.

There has been a handful of teams rumored or reported to be serious contenders in the Love trade sweepstakes.

Here is who those teams selected in the draft:

Boston Celtics: (6) Marcus Smart, PG, Oklahoma State.

                            (17) James Young, SF, Kentucky.

L.A. Lakers:            (7) Julius Randle, PF, Kentucky.

                        (46) Jordan Clarkson, SG, Missouri

Houston Rockets: (25) Clint Capela, PF, Switzerland.

Golden State Warriors:      Did not have a draft pick.

Chicago Bulls: (11) Dough McDermott, PF, Creighton. Traded from Nuggets

                                (49) Cameron Bairstow, PF, New Mexico

Phoenix Suns: (50) Alec Brown, PF/C, Wisconsin-Green Bay

Cleveland Cavaliers: (1) Andrew Wiggins, SF, Kansas

                                        (33) Joe Harris, SF, Virginia

Denver Nuggets: (16) Jusuf Nurkic, C, Bosnia, Traded from Bulls.

                        (19) Gary Harris, PG, Michigan State. Traded from Bulls.
