Seriously. Just trade Kevin Love and let this saga end already. The never-ending trade reports continued to flow in on Friday, July 25. The Minnesota Timberwolves power forward remains a player who’s on the trading block, but seemingly untouchable for an organization that would likely lose him for nothing in 2015 if he remains in Minnesota. According to Sam Amico of FOX Sports Ohio, Love has made it clear where he wants to be traded to.Multiple league sources told FOX Sports Ohio on Friday they are under the impression
The doldrum of summer is upon us. The only remaining hot topic of discussion in NBA news cycles is the back-and-forth battle for Minnesota Timberwolves All-Star power forward Kevin Love.
