BleacherReport.com reports that Kevin Love's preferred destination in trade is still an evolving situation, but that if the choice were to come down to the Golden State Warriors or the Houston Rockets, Love would prefer the Warriors.

The report emphasizes the roster as a major factor, since the Warriors would provide Love with a defensive center to cover up Love's shortcomings, and an array of shooters in Steph Curry and Klay Thompson to help spread the floor. One complication there is that any deal the Warriors would construct for Love would almost unilaterally have to include Thompson, who the Warriors have reportedly said is off the table.

The report also indicates that Love values a return to California where he's from over Houston, despite the Rockets' combination of Dwight Howard and James Harden.
