With the consensus being that Kevin Love will be traded at some point before the NBA trade deadline next season, a lot of teams around the league will attempt to acquire the superstar.

One team that has emerged as a potential suitor for Love is the Washington Wizards, according to David Aldridge of NBA.com:

Season complete. Wiz are a stealth candidate for Kevin Love — his father, Stan, who played for the then-Bullets in the early ’70s, gave his son the middle name “Wesley,” as in Wes Unseld. And Kevin Love has a soft spot as a result for the franchise. But the trade talk will surely die when the words “Bradley Beal” come out of Flip Saunders’ mouth.

At this point in time, the Los Angeles Lakers have been linked to Love more than any team. Although the rumors continue to circulate about Love landing in Los Angeles being inevitable, the Lakers don’t really have the assets to make a blockbuster deal for the star forward.

With that being said, Love may be headed elsewhere. The perennial All-Star will control his own fate in free agency in the summer of 2015, but in the meantime, teams like the Chicago Bulls, Golden State Warriors and Wizards will make their pitches to the Minnesota Timberwolves.

More teams are bound to show interest in the versatile forward during the off-season and heading toward the deadline next year. The Wizards potentially in the running for Love is intriguing with Washington taking a giant leap forward this season.

The addition of Love alongside John Wall and Bradley Beal could be a lethal combination in the Eastern Conference. Beal might be a player the Timberwolves ask for in return, but if not, Washington could become a serious threat to the Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers in the East.
