NBA News: T-Wolves Owner Says Kevin Love Won’t Be Traded By The Draft
[new_royalslider id=”196″]

With the NBA draft lottery on Tuesday, Kevin Love rumors have started to heat up again. Since there are reports that Love intends to exercise his early termination option and become a free agent in 2015, many feel the Minnesota Timberwolves are under pressure to trade the All-Star forward.

Before the Lynx’s home opener on Sunday, Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor addressed these rumors and said the team will not trade Love before the NBA draft in June according to StarTribune’s Jerry Zgoda:

“Not by the draft,” Taylor said before Sunday’s Lynx home opener at Target Center about such a possibility.

While Minnesota is hopeful a new coach and adding players will convince Love that the future is bright, it appears that both sides will eventually part ways either through trade or free agency.

With numerous teams interested in his services, the Lakers have acknowledged they are willing to trade the lottery pick and Love is likely the prime target. Depending on what pick they get on Tuesday will determine what course of action they will take.

On Tuesday, the Lakers have a 6.3 percent chance of landing the first overall pick and a 21.5 percent chance of landing a top-three pick in this year’s highly anticipated draft that features Andrew Wiggins, Jabari Parker, Joel Embiid, Dante Exum, and Julius Randle.
