The Minnesota Timberwolves aren’t totally stepping up their efforts to trade Kevin Love, but it appears they know where he’s going to go and what they want in return for him.
According to Sam Amico from FOX Sports Ohio, Timberwolves owner Glenn Taylor not only expects Love to be traded by the end of the month but already has an idea of what types of players he’s looking for in return.
“I think when you move somebody like Kevin, who’s been an All-Star, that you’ve got to get a number of players on your team that have the potential of replacing him,” Taylor told the Pioneer Press. “(Timberwolves president and coach Flip Saunders) has looked at this team and offensively, he’s got a pretty good team. Defensively, it’s got to be better, so I think that’s where some of the areas will be replaced.”
It’s hard to say that Taylor is going to get his way on a Kevin Love trade, as holding out for Andrew Wiggins may end up hurting more than it does help, but the man knows what he wants in return for Love and it helps illuminate why this process has been so long and tedious.
