Kevin Love fans, Minnesota Timberwolves fans and even Los Angeles Lakers fans are waiting of the Summer of 2015. The unknown is intriguing.
Then again, as one NBA Executive says, everyone knows what’s going to happen during that free agency period.
CBS Sports’ Ken Berger polled some general managers, and his findings may disappoint Wolves fans.
“They should trade him,” one Eastern Conference executive said. “No one thinks he’s staying. Everyone knows he wants to go to the Lakers.”
Berger does go on to say that not all executives agree with that assessment.
To make things even worse for Wolves fans is the fact that their team isn’t exactly doing their part in looking attractive to K-Love. Minnesota is doing just enough to survive the vicious Western Conference at 17-18, roughly 2.5 games out of the eighth seed.
Since Love signed that four-year contract (basically a three-year deal) extension in 2012, there has been a rumored connection between the Lakers and himself. He has connection to LA, having played one season of college basketball at UCLA.
The Summer of 2015 is still a long ways away, and as we know, plenty of things can happen between now and then. But here’s one thought to chew on: What happens if the Lakers find a way to sign Carmelo Anthony during the Summer of 2014 and Kevin Love in the Summer of 2015?
Food for thought.
