To Toronto: Kevin Love, Derrick Williams

To Minnesota: Andrea Bargnani, Jonas Valanciunas,Terrence Ross,Linas Kleiza(or Landry Fields if possible)

NBA Trade Machine - ESPN

I like Valanciunas,I see alot of potential in him but I'm uncertain about how good Ross could be throughout his career. It's not about giving up on these players but instead about getting the most for their value. Toronto has already reportedly(rumored) passed up on Tony Parker(essentially) and James Harden for Valanciunas,but I don't think they should on Love if he is what sweetens the deal. They could work on things from there but Love is a good cornerstone piece,who'd fit well with Lowry,DeRozan playing up front alongside Johnson or Davis. If it's contracually possible to trade Fields instead of Kleiza,they then could amnesty Linas' contract.
I would do that trade or ANY trade necessary to bring Love to TO.
