There’s seems to be some growing animosity between the Minnesota Timberwolves and forward Kevin Love. There’s a chance they may say goodbye to Mr. Double-Double. Read more after the jump.
Love is currently in the first year of a $60 million contract but can opt out after the 2014-15 season.
According to Marc Spears of Yahoo Sports, in an interview with NBA columnist Adrian Wojnarowski, Love recently questioned the direction of the franchise under owner Glen Taylor and general manager David Kahn. Love isn’t happy about not getting a five-year maximum contract, and some teams might try to explore acquiring him from Minnesota.
“I don’t think that’s a match that is permanent in Minnesota,” a rival assistant GM said. “I’m not saying they’re shopping, but if they can get the right deal they would look at it. And I don’t think he wants to be there.”
Love has an extremely high trade value and is still producing at an astonishing rate despite just coming back from a broken hand. If he is moved, it’ll be interesting to see where he lands.
