Why Won’t The Timberwolves Just Trade Kevin Love Already?

Submitted by on July 17, 2014 – 1:17 pmNo Comment

Kevin Love does not want to be a part of the Minnesota Timberwolves organization anymore. Although he hasn’t come out and publicly admitted as much, he has reportedly told the team that he has no intention of re-signing with them when he becomes a free agent next summer. So over the course of the last few months, his name has come up in trade discussions time and time again. Because the thought has been that the T’Wolves will trade Love away rather than letting him walk next summer.

Or will they?

Unfortunately, it sounds like Minnesota has no plans to trade Love away anytime soon. Their owner Glen Taylor spoke with NBA TV recently and he revealed that he actually wants to try and keep Love both now and in the future.

“My preference is that Kevin will come to [training] camp—and I’m sure he will—and play with the team,” he said. “We are going to look at everything that makes sense that would make our team better. But we are not going to move a superb player like [Love] without getting equal or more value back.”

We can’t really fault the T’Wolves for wanting to hold onto Love right now. After all, they’ll probably be able to command more for him once the 2014-15 NBA season starts and other teams get into a bidding war over Love. But we sincerely hope that Minnesota does not try and hold onto Love for all of next season. Because if he’s definitely not going to return to the team next summer, then they’d be best served trading him away and getting what they can for him. It will make their franchise stronger in the future and will, ideally, stop them from becoming one of the worst teams in the entire league.

With that in mind, we hope that someone out there offers Minnesota what they’re looking for and obtains the rights to Love. Soon. Because we’re already getting tired of all the rumors flying around out there about Love—and we can’t wait for them to stop.
