T Wolves Kevin Love tells Timberwolves to trade him

Quote:
Kevin Love’s people reiterated to the Timberwolves this past week that they had better trade him or else he’ll leave via free agency when his contract is up after next season. With Love looking to exit, there’s your No. 1 reason the T-wolves have not been able to find a head coach to take over for Rick Adelman. Love wants to play for the Lakers but he’s also open to coming to the Knicks.

Unless the dude becomes set on a specific team, MU needs to go for him. He is the kind of guy the team needs. A deal around amir/Patterson, demar/Ross, and some picks. I would bite if I was the wolves

No doubt, I think 2 first rounders and maybe some other player (not our core). The only problem is he sounds like a guy wanting to go to a big.market team and I assume he is ignorant bout T.O.

Likely he will get traded to Lakers for their pick this year (likely top 5)

Can't blame him, the Timberwolves are never relevant.

This would break Rubio's heart.
When Love leaves, I predict he'll want out as well.

You mean picks, and I think they'd have to give up Klay instead of Barnes.

The Raptors should get in on the Love sweepstakes, so long as Leiweke can convince him to sign long term. If we're looking to make a splash with a star player, this is the perfect opportunity, and we have the pieces to get him.

I don't want him. As talented as he is on O. He is not what we need on D

Lakers get a top 3 pick (wink wink league) and trade said player and picks for Love and just absorbs Loves contract. This would give the Wolves immediate cap relief (like 15-20 mil) to sign a top FA while adding a top pick with their own pick this year: and would add future picks for trades or whatever. It would be a sweet deal for both teams IMO.

Lakers will only have 51-52 at that point to add others like Deng and Livingston or Lowry and Ariza, then resign who they want to keep like Gasol, Farmer, Hill, Marshall and extend others like Young, Bazemore, Kelly.

Livingston/Kobe/Deng/Love/Gasol
Or
Lowry/Kobe/Ariza/Love/Gasol

Welcome back Lakers

Edit: not sure if it would like that with the new CBA but it seems to make sense.

No worries, only the Lakers can really offer a sweet deal for Minny and Love wants to go to the Lakers - certainly not the Raps. Love can hold his current team hostage to force where he wants to go a la Howard. The Lake show has maneuvered the roster nicely.

Aren't you the one who said he's the worst defensive big in the game? With our defense slipping hugely late in the year last season, someone like Love wouldn't help things. Maybe even make our defense worse.


Just to mention I'm pro-Love.

I still think he does a lot of things to win games, but to ultimately reach our goal, I think we need more defensive-oriented players.

I could care less bout the fact he sycks on defense, he is so amazing on offense. He will help on the glass and help the offense flow better because he is a smart player. JV is getting better so maybe we can hide him on D or something.
Hope Masai at least thinks bout getting him but not by giving away DD Ross. Give picks only and maybe GV/PP
