Much like New York Knicks’ small forward Carmelo Anthony is the focal point of the season in terms of free agency this season, Minnesota Timberwolves’ power forward Kevin Love will be the center of attention next year.
Many expect Love to leave Minnesota after next year with his top destination being the Los Angeles Lakers, largely because he is from California and attended UCLA and because he has never played in a playoff game.
According to Judd Zulgad of ESPN 1500 in Minnesota, Love has grown distant.
It was Kahn, with the blessing of owner Glen Taylor, who decided that Love wasn’t worthy of a max deal in January 2010, and offered him a four-year, $62 million contract. Love signed the deal and things haven’t been the same sense.
Once a gregarious and engaging person to interview, Love has grown incredibly distant. This petulant act is prelude to Love opting out of his contract on July 1, 2015 and never looking back.
The majority believe this is destined to happen.
Love averaged 26.1 points, 12.5 rebounds and 4.4 assists per game last season.
