Rumor: T-Wolves ‘Looking at Deals’ for Kevin Love
Kevin Love’s “people” reportedly told the team this past week that they should trade him, or he will leave via free agency after his contract expires. Love has one year left on his deal with Minnesota, then a player option for the following year.
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.
