NBA Rumors: Kevin Love wants to sign with Chicago Bulls or New York Knicks

The future of Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love is in serious doubt as the team wants to keep him but are very unsure that they can. It seems almost a consensus among NBA fans that Love will walk in the summer of 2015 and sign with a new team.

While it appears that the Los Angeles Lakers are interested and have been linked to him in the past, a new reports suggests that the Chicago Bulls and New York Knicks are equally as much front runners as the Lakers are.

Per ESPN Los Angeles’ Dave McMenamin

“A source familiar with Love’s thinking [said] it’s not just L.A. that is appealing to Love. He’s enamored with the idea of being ‘big time in a big city,’ and that list of potential places he’d seek includes New York and Chicago, as well.”

We don’t know what Kevin Love is going to do, but the Chicago bulls have seldom been mentioned in connection to him and this could open up a floodgate that ultimately leads to the team making a run at signing him or somehow acquiring him before anyone else can.

    The thought of Love being interested in NY has impact bigger that wirh Melo signing with NY than Phil coming. Just to hear that Love is interested in NY gives Melo another excuse to stay and hope the Knicks can sign him in the summer of 15 because they have Nothing outside of Hardaway jr. of value.

    Love to N.Y. to play alongside Melo is a good thing for N.Y. BUT won’t in itself bring them a ring. The Bull’s are another story, with Rose back plus Love playing next to Noah, that would mean one GREAT top three and could bring them a ring…

    Melo and Love together will not work on the court. They are virtually the same kind of player accept one doesnt play defense at all. No need to guess who that is
