NBA News: Kevin Love Visited Boston To ‘See What It’s Like’
For much of the season and especially in the past month, the Kevin Love trade rumors have heated up as there is speculation the Timberwolves All-Star will not sign an extension to remain in Minnesota.
There are numerous teams who are expected to pursue Love including two of the most storied franchises in the Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics. Well, it looks like Love will be spending his weekend in Boston according to the Dirty Water News:
Right off the plane he headed to The Greatest Bar for dinner up in the mezzanine. He sat in The Greatest Bar with his to buddies for a couple hours and then Rumor has it he headed over to Rumor for a night cap!
When asked why he was in town he responded ” I’m here to just check out the city and see what it’s like”… Tomorrow (actually today as it’s 2am) he will be walking around the city checking out all the sights . We hear he is headed to Del Frisco’s in this evening (Sat. Night). Sunday he will be going to the Red Sox game.
Since arriving in Minnesota, it has been a frustrating experience for Love as he has failed to make the playoffs and has had many coaches in his young career. Most recently, Ricky Rubio recognized his All-Star numbers, but questioned his leadership.
While Love will become an unrestricted free agent in 2015, the Lakers are expected to pursue him with the seventh pick in this year’s draft as they look to quickly rebuild themselves into championship contenders.
