After Tuesday night’s 104-103 loss to the Phoenix Suns, Kevin Love called out his teammates. With the Timberwolves looking to make the playoffs this season, Love called out J.J. Barea and Dante Cunningham for sitting at the end of the bench and not getting up during timeouts.
While there has been speculation for the last couple of seasons, one Eastern Conference executive believes that Minnesota should look to trade Love now. According to this source, everyone believes that the former UCLA Bruin wants to return to Los Angeles and play for the Lakers.
While the Lakers have cap room this upcoming summer, they would have to wait until 2015 before Love becomes a free agent. Although there was once trade rumors about Pau Gasol teaming up with Ricky Rubio, both players’ careers are headed in different directions and it appears unlikely that Minnesota would make that trade.
