WALNUT CREEK -- Asked about his reaction to Minnesota reportedly reaching an agreement in principle to trade forward Kevin Love to Cleveland, Warriors coach Steve Kerr said he didn't have one.

"It doesn't include our team, so when other teams make moves, that's really their business," Kerr said Thursday.

The trade for Love involves Cleveland sending No. 1 overall pick Andrew Wiggins, forward Anthony Bennett and a 2015 protected first-round draft pick, according to Yahoo Sports. Any deal involving Wiggins would not become official until Aug. 23, one month after the former Kansas star signed his rookie contract.

While it's possible the Warriors could get back into the Love sweepstakes by sweetening a trade proposal, Kerr seemed confident that there would not be major changes to the existing roster.

"All indications are that this is the group we're going forward with, but you never say never," Kerr said. "You never know what's going to happen, and ultimately that's not my job. I'm coaching the team that's here, but there's no question that we feel very confident and comfortable with the group that we have."

Klay Thompson and David Lee, who were players in trade talks involving Love, were named by Kerr as having "automatic" starting spots along with Stephen Curry and Andrew Bogut when a boy at the Warriors Basketball Camp at Tice Valley Community Gym asked the coach about the lineup.

"Andre (Iguodala) started last year, which he probably will (again), but there's a lot of options that we have because we've got really good players in Harrison (Barnes) and Draymond (Green)," Kerr said, adding that he would likely use the same lineup as last season. "But most of it usually comes down to how the combination fits. ... How do the pieces of the puzzle fit?"

  • Guard Nemanja Nedovic's injured right foot might require surgery, according to Kerr, who still appeared optimistic about the prognosis.

    "Fortunately, it doesn't appear to be a long-term recovery," Kerr said of the injury that took place while Nedovic trained with the Serbian national team.

    "I think there's a chance he could be ready for camp. If not, then shortly thereafter."

    Serbian national team doctor Dragan Radovanovic said in a statement that Nedovic would undergo additional testing, after an MRI exam conducted in Belgrade did not result in a diagnosis that was "definitive."

  • Undrafted rookie Aaron Craft, whom the Warriors agreed to terms with Wednesday on a partially guaranteed contract after Nedovic got injured, will compete for a roster spot in training camp after impressing Kerr at NBA Summer League.

    "We love Aaron's competitiveness and his defense and his energy and his intelligence," Kerr said of the former Ohio State star.

    " ... Whether he's good enough or not, we'll see, but we like the idea of bringing him to camp and possibly sending him to Santa Cruz to work on his game."
