Love intends to be free agent
Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love intends to become an unrestricted free agent after next season and is not interested in a contract extension, according to ESPN.com.
Though Love has not asked to be traded, his contract stance may force the Timberwolves to deal the All-Star before next season or by the February 2015 trade deadline.
The Golden State Warriors and Chicago Bulls are among the teams Love reportedly has the most interest in.
The Los Angeles Lakers and New York Knicks have also been mentioned as big-market destinations that could receive Love’s attention.
Additionally, the Phoenix Suns have several draft picks to offer the Timberwolves in a possible trade, but it is not clear if Love has interest in going to Phoenix.Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor has rejected all trade requests involving Love for several months, hoping to re-sign him to a long-term deal.
