A source close to free agent Kevin Love has come out saying that Love doesn’t have to play for a flashy team or live in LA or New York (even though he is from LA and has a girlfriend there and went to UCLA.
“…he wants to play for an organization that’s going to be a winning organization; not necessarily I have to go to a championship team now, but a team that’s going to be built to move in that direction,” the source said. “Maybe it’ll take a couple years. That’s OK. But he needs a change from Minnesota.”
According to Tim Welsh of Comcast Sports, Love does not intend on signing an extension with the Timberwolves.
“He respects (Celtics president of basketball operations) Danny Ainge,” Welsh said. “He’s already built it once. If he (Ainge) can sell him, ‘here’s the plan for the future,’ he’s open to it.
